Can you explain the recovery period for upper arm reshaping?
You will have a compression bandage on for about a week, at which time you’ll come back in and have the wound inspected. There should be no sutures to remove.
You will be able to use your hands normally straight away after surgery but during this first week no heavy lifting. By ten days the wound is healed but not strong. By two weeks it will have 20% strength. By three months 70%, so plan work and lifting accordingly.
