Nope Im not overweight except the normal 5ish of vanity pounds. Now that i have researched this some more and learned about the scars it sounds as if I still wont get to wear my short sleeves after the operation. Does this mean I can never do that for the rest of my life because I will either have hanging flab or scars?
Scares are inevitable, but the docs approach and technique can determine the extent of the scarring. Some are able to minimalize it more than others. You will have scars, it will depend on how many and/or how noticeable they are once they heal.
Keep in mind it has a lot to do with what type of skin you have. If you have more pigment in your skin then you will most likely scar easier. On the other end of the spectrum it seems like those with very pale skin hardly scar long term. I like have my "natural tan" from my skin tone but I do hate the fact that I scar so easily [and permanently]. If you can swap your flabby arms for a couple scars through under arm liposuction then I would go for it.
