Reduce swelling and redness of arm lift scar
Much healing is done by the 3 month milestone, although some patients do experience swelling for another 3-6 months and it is understood that full healing wont be over until past the one year mark. You are expected to still have some puckering at this point, common relief therapy includes firmly massaging lotion onto the area 3x a day for about 15 minutes or using a vibrating massager to soften the swelling area. Wearing a compression arm sleeve may help if swelling gets worse. Make sure in your daily life you are not participating in activities that could have negative side affects on your healing such as long hot tub sessions.
