Tight scars after brachioplasty
Thank you for your question. In addition to steroid injections, massage and silicone sheeting may be beneficial. Please discuss your concerns with your surgeon, especially since you had a complicated course. Good luck.

I appreciate your question.
I would recommend that you discuss this question with your surgeon as every surgeon has their own respective post op protocol for his/her patients. Your surgeon is your best resource as he/she is most familiar with your medical history and how you are healing at this time.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
Best of luck!

The scarring can take some time to heal even now. I would contact your surgeon to discuss the options to help relieve some of the discomfort. Either a cream or gel for the scar, or some silicone tape. There are a few options to try and improve it.
