Arm lift - still looks flabby at day 17
- You appear to be healing well.
- You are still very swollen -
- You truly need to wait a full six months to know your final result -
- Just give it time and make sure your surgeon knows of your concerns.

Too Soon To Judge
Still too soon to judge your results. You need to wait a couple months and continue wearing the compression garment.

try wearing your arm compression sleeves and make sure they fit you properly. If the scars are getting painful or raised you may be developing keloids or hypertrophic scarring which needs treatment by your surgeon.

I appreciate your question.
I would recommend that you discuss this question with your surgeon as every surgeon has their own respective post op protocol for his/her patients. Your surgeon is your best resource as he/she is most familiar with your medical history and how you are healing at this time.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
Best of luck!
