i had surgery on my bicep from a dog bite. the doc took out some of the muscle where it peeks and now I have a funny looking arm. i was wondering if it would ever some how go back to normal or am I stuck with a weird looking arm for the rest of my life
Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.

I am sorry about the surgical results on your arm.

sometimes over time, the surgical deformity can improve with time. you are still young so you have time for the muscle to repair and for the area to heal and improve.

in the future, if the area does not improve, you can always consult a plastic surgeon and see if there would be a plastic surgery which could repair the area and improve the look of the muscle and arm.

would you be interested in consulting with a plastic surgeon at this point?
