Is this procedure really 8 hours long?
 
That's what I've heard from my primary doctor. I had gastric bypass two years back and now I need to get rid of all this skin! I'm heard arm lift surgery is actually very painful and long, has anyone had it and can give me a review?

My friend Sara who had G.B. had an arm lift last spring and I no longer live in the same state as her so I never got to see her during the recovery but she said it was a very long procedure, I think 5 or 6 hours because they have to do it pretty slowly to prevent too much blood loss. She certainly bitched and moaned for the two months after complaining about pain and everything else. However she's the type that would do the same thing over fixing a cavity so you shouldn't let her discourage you. From what I can tell it came out pretty good when I saw her at Christmas.
