In brief: Surgery carries risk

Yes, an arm lift (brachialplasty) is a relatively painful surgery.
Initial pain is during the first 48-72 hours requiring narcotics but this usually wanes after this period. However persistent pain is a potential risk.

In brief: Yes

Yes, any surgical procedure carries the risk of temporary postoperative pain.
All surgical procedures also carry a small risk of chronic longstanding pain. An arm lift also carries the risk of infection , bleeding, blood clot, nerve damage, permanent numbness, and anesthetic reaction. You need to weigh the risks and the benefits and discuss them with your physician before deciding to proceed.

In brief: Yes.

Yes, temporary discomfort after arm lifting surgery is the norm. Longer-term discomfort is unusual but can occur. If this does occur, careful physical examination would be necessary to evaluate the cause and determine treatment for the pain syndrome.
Best wishes.
