Scarring is a highly probable potential and visible side effect of arm surgery. Scars can be unattractive, and making a choice between getting rid of excess loose skin at the risk of probably landing up with visibly unattractive scars, can be a tough trade off to make. Depending upon the degree of deformity (drooping) or ptosis, the surgeon either makes zig-zag, elliptical or curved incisions from the elbow to the armpit. Depending upon the level and the type of incisions, scarring becomes a primary concern post surgery. The expertise of the surgeon, post surgery care and your body's capability to heal quickly can limit the appearance of scars.

How they can cause memory loss: These drugs block the action of acetylcholine, a chemical messenger that mediates all sorts of functions in the body. In the bladder, anticholinergics prevent involuntary contractions of the muscles that control urine flow. In the brain, they inhibit activity in the memory and learning centers. The risk of memory loss is heightened when the drugs are taken for more than a short time or used with other anticholinergic drugs.
