Arm lift - how to fix transition scar?
Thank you for asking about your arm lift.
I am sorry your surgeon's office is closing but it is too early for any revision. You must wait a full six weeks. Once the tissues soften, it will become apparent what revision, if any, is needed.

It is a bit too early to know if this will go away on its own or persist. It is easily corrected under a local anesthetic in an office setting.
Greetings and thanks for your question. It does look like you have a dimple in the end of your incision and a scar revision in the area is most likely necessary to improve the situation. Speak with your plastic surgeon. Small scar revisions can be done in the office under local anesthesia for little costs and are less invasive than having general anesthesia again. Best, Dr. ALDO

Thank you for your question.
Based on the pictures you have posted, I would recommend a scar revision. This can be done with local in the office. It would remove the skin that is indented and help to release that lower portion of the scar. Good luck with healing.
