Arm Lift: What Will the Recovery Period Be Like?

The arm lift procedure is designed to restore the toned and attractive appearance of your upper arms. During the procedure, excess tissue will be removed from the upper arms, and then the remaining upper arm skin will be tightly wrapped and sutured around the upper-arm muscles.

There will be some temporary swelling and bruising around the upper arms for several days after your arm lift. You may also notice some temporary discomfort or pain in the area. These issues can all be managed with medication. It will take several weeks before your arms have healed enough for you to return to your normal activities.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Johnny Franco has been providing our patients with beautiful and natural-looking results for years. He can provide you with outstanding results from your arm lift. Contact our office today to schedule a consultation.
