Arm overtightening can limit movement
Hi, I just added a link that might be helpful...
Hi louise_loulou. With your arm extended, it does appear that there is extra tissue. It is important to put your arm up in the air (i.e. full range of motion) and check to see if the extra tissue persists. If not, then you know that the tissue left is permitting normal movement of your arm and its removal would have given you a functional impairment. If you need a small revision, it more than likely can be done under a local anesthetic or a twilight anesthesia, so will not have much cost associated with it. Have a candid discussion with your PS about your expectations and desires. Good luck!
Arm Lift - Is this the best result I could have had?
It is always best to address these concerns with your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with a visit to their office. I see a nice result from the photos you've provided.
I hope I have helped. Best of luck to you.
