Guys I am completely terrified at the idea of getting arm lift surgery. I'm a mom in her mid 50's and was never really heavy throughout my life - at the most ever I would say 25 lbs overweight and that was during my divorce 11 years ago. For some reason I have a ton of skin just hanging from my arms I don't get why? I'm not talking a wrinkle or two but rather skin you can grab and pull out 3 or 4 inches it's really sick. This has just became a problem over the last 5 to 7 years even though I've been normal weight that whole time.
I want to get surgery but after my friend's horror story after an arm lift surgery (wish I could show you the before and after photos) I am way too freaked to do it!
She had massive internal bleeding, hard rough scar tissue, areas of the arms where the scars separated so the area between them was enlarged and other complications. Yeah the skin was gone but she was left with a mess!
Is there a SAFE and RELIABLE way to do this surgery with no major surprised? All I want is the skin off and not a bazillion complications. Is there a certain technique for the arm lift surgery that is safer and has more reliable results?
