How Is the Recovery?
After the Arm Lift is completed, patients wake up with bandages on the surgical site. Compression garments are also placed around the arms to help to reduce swelling and to help the tissue grow and adhere in its new position. Drains may also be used to remove fluid from underneath the surgical site.
The recovery time for an arm lift is generally 4 weeks long and during this time, patients are asked to avoid strenuous activities. Patients who have jobs that do not require any heavy physical exertion are often ready to return to work after the first or second week. Patients with jobs requiring more physical exertion may be asked to wait an additional week or two before returning to their jobs. During follow-up visits, patients will be advised on when to return to other activities such as daily household routines and exercise regimens.
With the relatively short recovery time and the massive benefits of looking and feeling your best and most confident, we think that the Arm Lift procedure is the best treatment for flabby upper arms.
