I cut hair for a living and wonder how long I have to wait to work after traditional brachioplasty?

Brachioplasty recovery
Recovery from a brachioplasty is usually quicker than expected. Only skin is being removed, hence pain is minimal. I had a 72 year old patient attend the opera the day after I performed a brachioplasty. Given your profession, I would schedule 2 weeks off actual hair cutting and styling to protect the incisions and let your arms heal. You should be fine to do other things much sooner, such as attend a beauty show, restock inventory or other less manual aspects of your business. You should refrain from exercise or lifting over 10 pounds for a total of 6 weeks.
