Significant healing should be seen in about 10-14 days; After the armlift, recovery from swelling can take 3-6 months to fully fade.

Sutures are usually removed 2-3 weeks after surgery.

Because the incision stretches almost from elbow to underarm, scars will always be evident, but will fade almost completely in 6 months to 2 years of surgery.
