An upper-arm lift is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the upper arms. In order to accomplish this, incision need to be made along the upper arms. Because tissue removal will occur, you will need to set aside some time to recover after your procedure.

The recovery process for the upper-arm lift procedure is not too long or painful. You can expect to experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising for about two weeks. Any discomfort and swelling can be managed with medication and compression garments. You can resume a majority of your normal activities after about 10 days, but you will need to wait for at least a month before engaging any strenuous activities, if not longer.
