A brachioplasty procedure will normally take only two to three hours, and is generally performed as an outpatient procedure. It means that you don’t have to stay inside a surgical facility overnight. You may, however, choose to recover inside a hospital or in an accredited surgical center.
The surgery will typically make use of general anesthesia so you won’t likely feel anything during the operation. If your work does not require a lot of arm movements and is not strenuous, you may go back to working in around 10 days after surgery. For two to three weeks, you will be advised to regulate your activity level and weight resistance.
