In brief: No
Most arm lifts are donr under general anesthesia.
So, once the IV is in you will not feel any pain.

In brief: Minimal.
After the IV is started, you should feel/remember very little.
For the right patient, the armlifting procedure is generally a very patient pleasing operation. Best wishes.

In brief: Not really
Most upper arm lift procedures are done under general anesthesia.
Therefore beside the intravenous needle you should not feel any other needle.

In brief: Yes but
It shouldn't be a very big deal.
You could get a sedative beforehand.
