What can I expect post procedure and what is the recovery time?
Dressings and bandages are applied after the procedure. A support bra should be worn after surgery for comfort, support and to maintain the breasts’ new shape. There may be small drains placed to remove excess blood and fluids. These are usually removed the next day The stitches placed may be resorbable and thus do not need to be removed. The support bra should be worn for several weeks to a month.
The area will be tender for a few days. This post-operative discomfort usually responds well to oral pain medication.
