It is difficult to tell from the photo. It could be a suture a deep suture that is coming to the surface or it may be a seroma. Either of these are fairly common after an arm lift. Make another appointment with your plastic surgeon and they can evaluate the area. If it is a suture this can be easily removed in the office. If it is a seroma you can aspirate the area with a small needle. Occasionally you have to open the area and allow it to heal in secondarily. Good Luck!

Thanks for your question. Unfortunately, based on your description this could be a suture granuloma, seroma and/or inflammation. You should request to see the physician for an examination of the area and a diagnosis. Best wishes always, Dr. ALDO
