I just had my arm lift last Wednesday. The pain has not been to bad at all. I’ve just been taking Tylenol. I was able to shower two days after and I was kind of surprised when I took the bandages off, how much skin was left. I’m really, really hoping once the swelling goes down they will look better. Did this happen to anyone else after their arm lift? I have my follow up on Wednesday with my dr. I’m going to ask him. I was realistic going in that I wasn’t going to have the arms of an athlete. I just wanted to be comfortable wearing sleeveless tops. I hope this wasn’t a waste of money! Fingers crossed it gets better.

Congratulations! I had mine on mid December. I've been very happy with mine. I haven't noticed much extra skin being left but maybe my perception is just different. Certainly ask your Doctor when you see him next.

Thanks! We’ll see Wednesday what he says.

mine look much better than they did right after surgery. It does take awhile for all the swelling to go down. But I'd go ahead and see what he thinks since you're going in to see him on Wednesday.
