Can I improve the scars following arm-lifting surgery?

The scars following arm lift surgery are variable and depend on the extent of surgery. Simple techniques such as massage can help and I generally recommend Vitamin E cream. It is best to massage the scars once the scars have healed. It is reported that silicone can help soften scars and silicone can be provided as gel sheeting, silicone gel or silicone strips. It is uncommon for abnormal scars to form but often it can take a year or so for the scars to fade. It is extremely rare to need to perform a scar revision following arm lifting.
