Arm Lift Benefits, Risks & Recovery

Arm Lift Benefits/Advantages/Options

  • Reduction in upper arm excess
  • Better self image/confidence
  • Being able to wear short sleeve clothing without being self conscious

Arm Lift Risks/Complications/Patient Safety

  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Unattractive scarring
  • Swelling of the hands
  • Seroma formation (seromas are fluid collections that can arise after surgery along the incision line)

Arm Lift Recovery Process

  • Some surgeons prefer to wrap the arms or use compression garments
  • Most surgeons prefer that the arms are elevated for a few days, above the heart
  • Slow return of normal function of the arms and hands over a couple of weeks

    You should avoid Aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications for the first few days after your arm lift surgery. Smoking and exposure to second-hand smoke may impair the healing process and should be avoided.
