Arm recontouring recovery is an integral aspect of brachioplasty surgery. After your upper arms have been trimmed of excess drooping flab and loose skin, they will need time to heal and recover. It’s not an overly long process, but you will need to follow the care instructions provided by your surgeon.

The patient may experience mild swelling and bruising in the arm area for up to three weeks following the arm lift. To reduce these during arm recontouring recovery, cold compresses are recommended, and compression garments are also available.

Once the swelling goes down, you’ll be able to wear tops that show off your newly recontoured arms. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Stephen Herring has years of experience and numerous satisfied customers. He will be happy to offer instructions relating to arm recontouring recovery, so contact us today for an appointment.
