Post-Surgery care after Upper Arm Lift cosmetic surgery:
One or two days after the Upper Arm lift cosmetic surgery, the plastic surgeon removes drains used to drain off the rest of the blood liquids. The patient leaves the cosmetic surgery clinic with compression clothes on the legs; the arms dressed by an elastic roller bandage. Concerning the arms, this re-bandaging takes place in a similar way, except only every other day and instead of using compression clothes, the arms are dressed with an elastic roller bandage.
Two weeks after the Upper Arm lift surgery, the plastic surgeon removes the compressions, gauze and patches on both the arms and it is possible to take a shower. It is possible that the patients remove the patches themselves in the event that they cannot come to the re-bandaging. The stitches are absorbent and they do not need to be removed.
Pressure massages of the scars should begin 18 days after the Upper arm cosmetic surgery. A finger is used to exert pressure on the scar for 30 seconds and then the finger is moved to another place on the scar. This massage is carried out several times a day and it is also suitable to use scar creams. The patient maintains a state of rest for 14 days after the Upper Arm lift cosmetic surgery.
With Upper Arm Lift surgery, office work is possible a week after the cosemtic surgery in Prague, with the arms being bandaged for one more week. Full physical strain of the arms is possible 4 weeks later. Compression clothes are then worn for 2 more weeks, constantly, only taken off for showers. Full physical strain is possible 4 weeks after the cosmetic surgery abroad in Prague.
