RECOVERY AFTER SURGERY

Following your surgery, dressings or bandages may be applied to your incisions, and your arms may be wrapped in an elastic bandage or a compression garment to minimize swelling. A small, thin tube may be temporarily placed under the skin to drain any excess blood or fluid.

You will be given specific instructions on how to care for surgical site and drains, medications to apply or take orally to aid healing, specific concerns to look for, and when to follow up with your plastic surgeon.

Be sure ask your plastic surgeon specific questions about what you can expect during your individual recover period.
• Where will I be taken after my surgery is complete?
• What medication will I be given or prescribed after surgery?
• Will I have dressings/bandages after surgery?
• When will they be removed
• Are stitches removed? When?
• When can I resume normal activity and exercise?
• When do I return for follow-up care


RESULTS

The smoother, tighter contours that result from an arm lift are apparent almost immediately following your procedure. Initial results will be obscured by swelling and bruising and a scar will remain where the incision was made.

Although good results are expected from your procedure, there is no guarantee. In some situations, it may not be possible to achieve optimal results with a single surgical procedure and another surgery may be necessary.

The results of arm lift surgery will be long lasting provided that you maintain a stable weight and general fitness. As your body ages, it’s natural to lose some firmness, but most of your improvement should be relatively permanent.


Following your physicians’ instructions is essential to success of your surgery. It’s important that the surgical incisions are not subjected to excessive force, swelling ,abrasion , or motion during the time of healing. Your doctor will give specific instructions on how to care for yourself.
