Many people have their upper arms recontoured with brachioplasty surgery. Once you’ve gotten recontouring surgery for your upper arms, you’ll experience some downtime. This is necessary for proper brachioplasty recovery.
Most patients’ brachioplasty recovery process is complete within four to six weeks at the latest. The best way to ensure that your healing process requires as little time as possible is by following your plastic surgeon’s post-operative care instructions to the letter. These typically include limitations on certain activities, recommendations for sleep positions, ways to control any bruising and swelling, and more.
