I am currently recovering from ann Arm Lift but will be scheduling a BL once I heal up a little. I'm posting my before photos so that I can compare them in the future with photos after the swelling in my arms goes down.

Yes I am wearing a marena garment with zippers during the day but at night I'm just wearing thigh length compression hose because the garment is too warm at night. I've gone without a few times and not had too much swelling as a result. READ COMMENT

My incision is down the thigh with very little in the groin and it is healing well. The discomfort (it was never what I would call pain) cleared once the drains came out at day 6. The swelling hasn't been too bad except for the inner... READ COMMENT

I wore a compression vest with sleeves below the elbow for about 8 weeks and had no healing issues and very little swelling. The one from Design Veronique was the most comfortable. I can't imagine doing both arms and thighs at the same... READ COMMENT
