Wanting a Second Opinion - London, GB

Hi, I had a an arm lift done in harley street...

Hi, I had a an arm lift done in harley street london 10 weeks ago to date and after having a post op check up yesterday have been left feeling very disappointed. I found out that what I assumed was swelling and fluid still, is actually fat pockets that will remain so I am very unhappy with the shape the op has left my arms. Because it is still early days was hadnt bn worried about the shape as I thought is would improve as the healing process went on but now I am concerned that this is how my arms will remain. My surgeon didnt seem to concerned with the shape and seemed happy with how things were, just saying he could remove a dog ear if it doesnt settle down by the 10 month mark. He said he was very reluctant to touch the elbow because of a nerve that runs round it so lipo can be dangerous. I understand this but feel he sould not have taken so much fat from the kiddle of the arm if he could not balance the shape ? I am really worried this is how I am going to be left


Well im trying to keep massaging my scars and wearing compression gafments again to help with swelling and scaring. Not due to go back to my surgeon till march next year now so trying nit to stress about it and give my arms the time they need to heal and go from there.
Thanks guys
