Will I need down time following my arm lift surgery (brachioplasty)?

If you have simply undergone Liposuction, you feel bruised and stiff, but there is no restriction on movement. It depends exactly what work you do and you might need a few quiet days. Any dressings can be removed in a couple of days or when they come loose, and stitches removed in a week.

If loose skin is removed in your arm lift, you will have some dissolving sutures and probably some permanent sutures to be removed in 7 to 14 days. Dressings vary, but any bulky ones can come off in a couple of days. You should exercise to maintain full movement of the shoulder and arms, but this need not be violent to stress the sutures. It is recommended that you take around two weeks off work depending on the kind of work you do, and for the first few days following your arm lift surgery, you may need a little extra love and care at home.
