How Long Does Recovery Take For Arm Lift 

Because an arm lift is a personalized procedure, the actual procedure can vary from person to person. Because of the variance in procedures, there is naturally a variety in the recovery times; however, you can expect recovery to take anywhere from one to four weeks.

Recovery Tips For Your Arm Lift

  • Get Help From A Family Member
    • Avoiding strenuous activity is important not just to the recovery process but also to not affect the results of the procedure.
  • Rest!
    • Without rest, your results can be affected or your recovery may take longer than needed!
  • Stay Hydrated
    • Dehydration can elongate your recovery, so it is important to keep drinking fluids.
  • Limit Exercise Or Avoid It For The First Month
    • After a procedure, it is important to give your body adequate rest time; even if you feel ready, it will be important to limit exercise until you’ve had your first postoperative appointment and check-in for the doctor to be able to assess your recovery.

What Are the Benefits of an Arm Lift In Cincinnati?

The surgery can be performed on both men and women and usually takes place under general anesthesia. The surgery usually takes about two hours to complete. 

During the surgery, the surgeon will make an incision in your arm from your armpit to your elbow. The incision will be hidden in your natural crease. After the incision occurs, the surgeon will remove any excess skin and fat. The remaining skin will tighten, and the incision will be closed with stitches. 

Most people who have an arm lift in Cincinnati are happy with their results. The surgery can improve the appearance of your arms and help you feel more confident in your appearance. Keep reading to learn more!

There are many benefits of an arm lift, including the following:

Improved self-esteem and confidence: One of the main benefits of an arm lift is that it can improve your self-esteem and confidence. Many people feel self-conscious about their appearance after losing a significant amount of weight, and an arm lift can help improve how you feel about yourself.

Improved physical appearance: An arm lift can also improve your appearance, giving you the toned and tonic upper arms you’ve always wanted.

Reduced risk of skin infections: Excess skin in the upper arms can lead to skin infections and rashes. By reducing the amount of excess skin, an arm lift can help to reduce the risk of skin infections.
