How bad are arm lift scars?
I am thinking about an arm lift as I mentioned elsewhere on here but I need to find out how bad the scars are. I don't want to trade one problem (flabby arms) for another (arm lift scars) so what should I do? I really need to get rid of the flabby fat and arms that happened out of nowhere. I did not have them five years ago and suddenly I am left with old woman arms. I can't stand them.

I have a friend that had an arm lift and she was very satisfied with it. As you said it may be trading one thing (flabby arms) for another (arm scars) but isn't everything in like that? My friend that had this done had lost a ton of weigh so it was an extreme case of flabby arms and they looked awful. I don't notice her arm lift scars because unless her arms are up in the air you don't see them. Depending on your skin type I would say it would be worth it. But if you have olive skin like me you may scar worse so keep that in mind.
