How Long Will my Arms Stay Swollen After Brachioplasty?

-Swelling after an arm lift (brachioplasty) is expected, with most of the swelling resolving by 3 months after the procedure. 

-However, some patients, such as yourself, will have continued swelling beyond 3 months that can be annoying. 

-It is likely that over the course of another 3-6 months, this swelling will resolve completely.  I realize it's hard to be patient for the swelling to resolve, but time, more than any other therapy, will allow the swelling to improve.

camma1I want to thank you for making my plastic surgery experience so wonderful. I am completely satisfied with the size (of my breasts) and my husband is too. Thank you for the perfect experience from beginning to end.
