WHAT WILL MY RECOVERY ENTAIL?
After breast revision surgery, you will be fitted with bandages and drains that stay in place for the first few days. You will need a friend or family member to drive you home after you wake up from the anesthesia. This person should also stay with you the first night of your recovery.
To help manage any swelling, bruising, or tenderness, Dr. Delgado will provide you with prescription pain medications. He will also send you home with a detailed and personalized aftercare plan.
You will be able to take gentle walks after your surgery, which can help improve circulation as well as enhance your mood. However, it’s important that you abstain from vigorous exercise and heavy lifting for up to 4 weeks, or as instructed by the doctor.
