Swelling in inner elbows after brachioplasty.

Swelling in the elbows?
Swelling after arm lift can be frustrating. I have recommended wearing a compression garment that drops down all the way to the wrist, similar to those used for after breast reconstruction with lymphedema. Lymphatic massaging might also help.
Speak with your plastic surgeon about these options.

Arm Lift Healing...
The recovery for an arm lift (brachioplasty) is different for each patient. It is about 4-6 weeks before patients feel 100% “normal” again, it depends on the evolution of the healing and cares taken. Maintain close communication with your surgeon and make sure to follow his/her recovery instructions.
Thanks for put your trust on us.
Have a great day!
