Botched Arm Liposuction?
So sorry that you're having to deal with this issue. It must be very frustrating to feel self-conscious of your arms and to feel limited with your wardrobe. Yes, it does appear to be a poor liposuction result. I know you want to get this looking better as soon as possible, but it may be best to wait around 9 to 12 months for the scarring to soften. Otherwise, going back too early will result in liposuctioning a concrete mess and not extracting very much fat if more liposuction is needed. In your case, it may also be necessary to use a special cannula to break up the scar tissue and to mobilize the fat in the area in order to move it into areas where there are indentations or craters. An in-person evaluation is needed to give you the best personalized advice. Make sure you go to a plastic surgeon who is skilled in revision liposuction, particularly of the arms, as the arms can be a bit tricky as they are cylindrical and not flat. Best of luck to you.
