Surgery and anesthetics
This procedure of arm stretching or lifting must be done in a clinic or hospital, in an operation room. This must be done under general anesthetics or epidural. An incision will be done in an area where the scar might not be very visible. This surgery can be complemented with liposuction from the near areas in order to have less volume.
Some discomfort can be suffered though very easily controlled through analgesics. The only thing you won’t be able to do is to lift weight or practice aerobic sport. The lymphatic drainage you will receive will help a better recovery, and less bruises after the operation.
Después de la Cirugía (Postoperatorio)
You may suffer some discomfort easily relieved by habitual analgesics. The only limitations will be load weight and perform aerobic sport. The lymphatic massages will help you to early recovery and a decrease in postoperative edema.
Complications after this kind of surgery are not very common. However, since you have a scar you might suffer from infections, with some problems in the process of the scar (widening and volume of the scars). Hematomas are not very common because of the way incisions are made. You might suffer a loss of sensibility in the area (transitory).
