Will I have drains put in after an arm lift?
After an arm lift, you may have a small plastic tube placed under your skin at the site of the incision. This ensures any blood or fluid that may build up during the operation can freely drain, therefore avoiding build-up. You will generally only have the drains kept in for 1 to 2 days. If you do have drains put in, your nurse will give you advice on how to take care of them.
