Recovering From Arm Lift Surgery - Cosmetic Surgery Guide
After the surgeon finishes suturing (stitching up) the wound, semi permeable material (e.g. gauze, a bandage, or both) will be placed over the area of the incision. A course of antibiotics may be prescribed to prevent infection, healing and the scar's development are both monitored, arm sensitivity may be checked to ensure no nerve damage was caused during the procedure, and you will be advised to avoid performing any strenuous activities with your arms. It is also advised by some surgeons that you take a period of two weeks off work following the procedure.
Immediately following your arm lift surgery you will either stay overnight in the hospital or surgery, or you may return home. If you opt for the latter option you should make sure that you know someone who will be willing to stay with you, to make sure that there are no immediate complications with regard to your health.
The general anaesthetic will probably still be having some sort of an effect on you once your arm lift surgery is complete. You will most likely come away from your surgery feeling exhausted and aching (considering what your body will have been through). It is important that you rest well and do not exert yourself following surgery, especially in cases where general anaesthetic has been administered.
If complications develop after you have had arm lift surgery (e.g. an excessively large scar, unsightly arm contour or a remaining excess of skin and fat) a secondary brachioplasty (arm lift surgery) may be undertaken.
Your scar will often appear red and even for a few months after the arm lift. However, your scar should fade, becoming paler and smoother after a year. The area of the scar should be protected from the sun until it has become paler.
