Recovering after Brachioplasty in Melbourne, Florida
You are still quite early in the healing process after your
brachioplasty. I have found that Melbourne, Florida, brachioplasty
patients really appreciate complete communication in this area. Keep in
mind that even though your surgeon removed quite a bit of tissue, the remaining
tissue is of the same quality as before surgery as it is impossible for any
surgeon to change your pre-existing skin and soft tissue quality.
Therefore, it is fully expected that your arms will not stay as tight as your
surgeon made them. They will relax with time, which is completely
expected. Ultimately, I suggest you follow closely with your
board-certified plastic surgeon during your recovery period. I hope this
information is helpful to you. Best of luck!
Hello, looking better. I would expect you to still have swelling at this time. It can take a few months for ALL of the swelling to resolve. I would not wrap acewraps so tight that your hand go numb. I would also talk to your PS about their recommendations about compression. Good Luck.
Swelling or sagging?
One would certainly expect swelling at 4 weeks. It can take up to 3 months for all of it to resolve. Seems like things look pretty good in the photos. Follow up with your surgeon.
You are very early in the healing and settling process which usually takes several months. In any body contouring procedures, stages may be required for optimal results.
Close follow up with your plastic surgeon is recommended during this time.
