After weight loss surgery, it’s very common to have excess skin that hangs from areas of the body. Upper arm skin folds are sometimes referred to as “bat wings,” an embarrassing moniker. To trim away these folds, many people get a procedure called an arm lift. Before you get this procedure, it’s helpful to learn more about arm recontouring recovery.
If you’re experiencing any pain or discomfort during your arm recontouring recovery, speak with your doctor about the possibility of pain control medication. Certain medications should be avoided, so make sure to consult with your plastic surgeon in order to determine the proper medication for the situation.
With the right preparation, arm recontouring recovery can be a comfortable process. Doctors Calvin Peters and Kendall Peters, board-certified plastic surgeons, can give you the post-surgical care directions you’ll need to avoid complications. To arrange a consultation, contact our office.
