Arm lift swelling and poor results (Photo)
Doctor Answers 7
Your photos do not show more swelling or evidence of infection. However, these diagnosis are best made with an in-person examination. Posting before and after photos is the best way for us to evaluate the results. Have your plastic surgeon examine you now if you believe there's an infection brewing! Best, Dr. ALDO

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!
