How Painful Is An Arm Lift?

An arm lift surgery—also known as a brachioplasty—removes extra skin and fat from the arms. Often performed on people who have experienced major weight loss or seen extensive skin sagging due to aging, an arm lift can help restore youthful and proportionate looking arms. Let’s look into a frequently asked question, “How painful is an arm lift?”Arm lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Thus, patients do not feel anything during the procedure itself. Afterward, there is some level of expected post-operative pain and discomfort. Dr. Jonov will prescribe pain medication to help make your recovery easier and less painful.Overall, patients find an arm lift recovery bearable. Major pain should subside within a week, usually sooner. Occasional discomfort and pain are normal for a few weeks as you continue to heal, but it is typically managed with Tylenol. Patients often return to work in about one to two weeks.To learn more and schedule a consultation with Dr. Jonov, call us at 425-775-3561.
