When you wake up, you will likely find that your arms are wrapped with bandages to keep swelling to a minimum. There could also be drains placed to eliminate excess fluid buildup, which could compromise your results.
Your skin may feel tight and uncomfortable for some time, and in the days following surgery, there will be some degree of pain, which you can control with the medications we prescribe. If you find the pain is greater than the medication can mitigate, we will work with you on an alternate pain management plan.
You won’t be able to drive for at least 10 days, and depending on the nature of your job, will need 1-2 weeks off work. There will be restrictions on how much weight you can lift for at least 3 weeks after surgery.
