Pics of my strange bone sticking out!

Hey...I never had this before...and it hurts to lean on elbows....maybe some fat was taken out there??
My bone is completely jutting out on both elbows...very strange!

Anyone who had arm lipo has something like this, I look like a freak now!!

It looks like a skinny persons elbow to me. Perfectly normal as far as I can tell.

Yep! i just have normal (fat!) un-lipo'd arms and my elbow sticks out too. AND it hurts to lean on it.

HOWEVER, i'll be getting my upper arms lipo'd NEXT friday and i'm so excited after seeing your pics!!!
Man, your arms look amazing!!!!!!!!!! How long ago was your surgery? I don't see any skin hanging either.
I'm 33 and my arms have been the bane of my existence for my entire life! I feel so great after seeing yours!

well, my husband alarmed me because he said my elbows looked freaky! but i guess it's normal then!

i'm 33 too, and my arms don't look half as good as they did in the pics! they will, but the swelling definitely kicked in and now they look inbetween.

My arms are always doing stuff and so I'm sure the swelling is quite severe there because it's an area that really doesn't rest...

good luck with your lipo.

Well the pics look amazing! So i take it more swelling has set in since then?
How is your bruising?
And how is your skin? Is it hanging or is it tight? It looked good in your pics.

Most importantly, are you wearing tank tops yet???? :)

i barely had any bruising! the skin feels good, no hanging!
arms are swollen, and i can feel it....the swelling is almost heavier than the fat and it hangs when I don't wear the garment.
but, i know the swelling will go in the next month or so...i have to be patient.
i am wearing tank tops, when not wearing the garment! And I feel better but not 100% confident because I know the swelling resembles fat.

All in all, I'm thrilled with my new arms....

You should be, they look awesome. :)

Did you use any of that stuff that's supposed to help with the bruising? I'd certainly like to avoid being black & blue, if possible.

Thanks so much for sharing, it's so helpful to get more details on "what to expect". Doctors aren't much help with that part of it, are they? :)
