6 month revisions complete

6 month revisions complete

Postby mrsamywright » Fri Nov 04, 2011 8:51 am

Just had arms touched up yesterday. Left arm had a tiny piece of loose skin removed at top of incision. It couldn't have been more than 2-3cm long, but it really just sort of hung there when I raised my arm up to the side, so it needed to go....

The right arm needed more lipo on the elbow area. Have some swelling and bruising there today, but that's to be expected. When I was heavy as a kid, I carried a freakish amount of weight around my elbows, so there was still a bit of pudge there that needed to go.

Overall, I have no pain, they are just a bit tender.

So glad, I got them touched up and looking forward to my new, thin arms. :)

I'm so glad to hear it went well. Do they make you wear compression garments for the revision as well? Keep us posted as I have a long time to wait before I can get a revision. My arms are so skinny...I think my PS is just going to revise my scars. Did you have scar revision as well, or is it the same thing? Did they give you a local or put you all the way under?

I'm hoping its easier than the original surgery!

Thanks, Vanessa. No no scar revision. One arm needed more lipo and the other just needed a bit of tightening at the very top. The scars themselves look pretty good - they are thin for the most part. I did get a bit of widening in one armpit, but I didn't want to be recut again for it since it could have just happened again since that's such a high-tension area. My scars are still pink, but a few spots have turned white. I used strips for 4 months 12-14 hours a day, so I hope that in the long run the scars will turn white, but I have read it can take a year or two.

What revisions do you think you will need? Yes, it's amazing how much smaller the arms are after this surgery. I didn't have to wear a garment as the revisions were pretty minor. It could have been done locally, but I had to get other things revised, so I was put under. I am sure most arm revisions are just local. :)

From what I have read, it can take up to two years for the scars to turn white. I am still pink on most of my arm. If they are pink, they are healing. I think you just need more time. :)
