When a patient wants to enhance their arms, an arm lift surgery is often one of the top choices because it addresses the skin and underlying tissues. However, one of the top concerns of patients considering the procedure is scarring. Arm lift scars can be extensive and are not hidden as well as other cosmetic surgery scars. So, do arm lift scars fade?
Scar healing will vary from patient to patient. However, in most cases, scars do eventually fade. Between one and two years after surgery, the scars reach full maturation and will likely begin to fade more significantly.
Medical conditions such as diabetes, HIV, and similar immune suppressants can impact healing. Make sure to mention these to Dr. Allegra during your consultation so that he can monitor your healing and create an adequate scar care plan. This may also slow down the overall healing process.
Northwest Face & Body also makes use of Scar Protocol, a five-phase year long scar cream system that helps produce less noticeable scars. To learn more and schedule a consultation, call us at 425-576-1700. You can also reach out online via Price Simulator, chat, or contact form.
