Help with arms.
Thanks for your questions. Most of your description sounds normal, however, I think it would be very useful to be re-examined by your surgeon if the redness and pain get worse. Arm lift scarring can have burning sensations which respond nicely to vibratory massage. If the burning sensations get worse you might consider a gaba based medicine to reduce these sensations.

Bruising and burning after arm lift
What you're describing sounds normal to me. There will be unusual sensations you'll experience as your body heals, as nerves grow back, and as scarring grows and resolves. Also, it is very common to have rippling and unevenness of the scars, and this can resolve significantly within the coming months. Give it at least six months before you make a final determination as to the result.
