Hey Everyone,

If you are worried about scarring definitely look into the scar silicone sheeting, they work really well on reducing the appearance of scars including the redness around scars called erythema. The Scar sheeting comes in many different shapes and sizes specifically shaping themselves for a variety of incision points.

Here are a few suggestions for scar sheeting that would be perfect for arm procedures.

Scar Fx Silicone Scar Healing & Reduction Sheet - 1" x 12" (w/Self Adhesive Side): This silicone sheeting can be used about 2 weeks after the incision was made. The earlier you begin using silicone sheeting the more effect it has on the scar. Click here to view: http://bit.ly/dosT72

Scar Fx Silicone Scar Sheet - 1.5" x 3" (w/Self Adhesive Side) Click here: http://bit.ly/9Kkhvb

There are also creams and gels that work great on scars:

Scar Esthetique Healing & Reduction Cream (w/Silicone, Arnica, Antioxidants, Copper Peptides, Co-Q10) Click here: http://bit.ly/cWEt1f

Kelo-cote Scar Healing & Reduction Gel Click here: http://bit.ly/9WFEpH

How are the wounds going to look like after the operation? How long will it take for them to fully heal?

I am a 55 year old woman who underwent lap-band surgery about 4 years ago and lost about 80 lbs initially. Last year I had a total body lift that removed another 20 lbs. I have always hated my arms, they became wrinkled and saggy and I had fat pockets on my sides which gave me "back boobs". One week ago today I had a brachioplasty with excision of sides. While I am still extremely swollen and bruised, I have to say I'm thrilled that I had it done.

I had the gauze bandages for the first few days and then put on the compression garment I purchased thru this website. I'm returning it because it is exceedingly uncomfortable. I think I should've gone a size larger, but it also closes in the front and puts pressure where the lap-band is and makes it difficult to eat. I purchased another garment that velcroes in the front and does not have a "bra" portion (boobs are out). I hope it will be more comfortable as the bandages were a pain in the ass, constantly loosening up and bulky. Based upon how I felt with my last surgery, I wore compression garments for months after my body lift. The swelling can take several weeks (with me at least 2 months), so I wanna be comfortable.

I'm not concerned about the scarring, I'm lucky to be a good healer. However, the scar creams and products I used from this site have been phenomenal. And good ol' Neosporin is awesome in the beginning while the scars are really fresh. I live with my sister, so I am lucky to have full-time help. I am also VERY independant and have already started to do some things on my own as tolerated. There are still some moves that send me to the ceiling in pain! But generally, it just burns and stings from time to time, very tolerable.

I enjoyed reading everyones experience, there is not alot written about this procedure which is why it's still pretty frightening to alot of women. This is my LAST surgery, I finally look in the mirror and feel like the woman I've been inside all along. :wink: Best of luck to everyone!!! And........thanks.

I am aware of how old this thread is but I feel like I need to talk to someone who can relate to me.
I lost an extreme amount of weight through exercise and healthy eating and decided to have FTT and thigh lift which I am extremely happy with.
I also had my arms done with the same PS,(I was always unsure about my arms because I didn't want any visible scars) he told me that he would make the scarring discreet and neatly into the arm pit...I feel cheated because I now have scars down both arms and I am more conscious than I was before the procedure.
I did everything by the book and I don't know what else to do about it?
I find that I am obsessing about it and constantly looking at them feeling full of regret.

I didn't have nay regrets after doing an arm lift. My Doc Sammy Silwin took great care of me throughout the surgery. His technique was to take a petty long incision form my elbow under the breast and down the side of flank. I selected him based on many reviews from realself and goodsurgeonbadsurgeon.com. Did homework and now it is proven that my home works were worthy.
