I'm wondering if scar revision surgery would help me? (Photos)
5 months ago
Brachioplasty 3/31/2015. MD released me to go back to the gym. Scars became large, wide, raised, contracted in my arm pits. Scar revisions tried -- laser (CO2, Pulsed dye), dermaroller, dermapen, kenalog injections, 5FU injections, silicon taping, massaging, of course compression garments. I wore them 24/7 for first 6 weeks. then d/c'd as MD advised. I've found a new PS in the Washington, DC - plans to surgically excise the scars. perhaps with a Z-plasty, use low dose radiation daily x 3 days.

Based on your photos, I think you will benefit from surgical scar revision with the adjunct treatments to prevent recurrence. Best wishes.
