Bat Wing or Scars??
Just have a question for those that have had the surgery what's worse the bat wings or the scars from the surgery.
My insurance has approved the surgery but of course my mind is spinning on whether or not to go though it. I am having a tummy tuck also but because of excess skin am looking at also having skin removed bilateral so I will end up with an upside down T on my mid-section. Any thoughts on ANY of this is Greatly Appreciated =)

Having said that, I'm pretty sure my insurance won't cover it, and I plan to start trying to get pregnant soon after maintaining my goal weight for a few months or whatever the doctor's instructions are, so I may never end up getting any kind of plastics. I'm okay with that, for now.
I'd take the reddest ugliest scars out there to be from from my batwings - they are more like airplane wings though at this point. My arms are absolutely hideous though sooo, come november, I'm hacking them off!!
Good luck with the plastics :)

I'm about 13 lbs from goal I think, so this is on my mind too. I just got back from a 2 wk tropical vacay and wore lots of sleeveless. I just refused to let my batwings dictate my wardrobe. But the pics have totally convinced me that plastics is in my future. You wouldn't see the scar in a single picture. But my arms look funky in at least 80% of them.
PS - What insurance do you have?
For me it's about clothes fitting comfortably, which they haven't really all that much up to now.
Brachioplasty it is. And it certainly cannot be any worse than having almost 14 pounds of breast removed or having my abdominal cavity blown up like a beach ball!

I'm reallly excited to see how things turn out. I never had batwings before but this time, I sure do. If my insurance approved it,I'd be all over it.
I'm torn because I have dark skin and my scars don't fade, they turn back. I still have my surgery scars. I hate my flapping arms but after a arm lif you do have to keep it covered and away from the sun for a yr. Get the best Dr you can. I've seen some people come out w flabby looking arms. Dr's in Mexico are a lot more reasonable cost wise.
