Recovery After Arm Lift
I typically advise my patients to limit activity for at least 2 weeks. It is possible you will be able to lift your children after one week but I would plan on having help available for 2 weeks. You will also need pain medication for the first several days and you would not want to try to lift them while on medication.
When you go for your consultation, your plastic surgeon can give you a better idea of how long his/her patients take to recover. Best of luck to you.
