You will experience some swelling and bruising following your surgery. The majority of the swelling will subside about one to two weeks post-surgery. Most patients return to work in one to two weeks but must refrain from heavy lifting for six weeks. Most women can resume their regular exercise routines after six weeks.
Scarring varies depending on where your incisions are placed. We use the original incision location from your previous breast procedure when possible. If you develop any visible scarring, it is likely to fade over time.
The cost of your breast revision surgery will vary depending on the extent of correction needed, surgical fees, geographical location, and anesthesia fees. While cost does play a role in your breast revision choices, it shouldn’t be the most significant factor. You should choose an experienced plastic surgeon who is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
You will likely experience some discomfort during the first few days of recovery. Oral pain medication can be taken to alleviate discomfort, and the pain usually subsides within a few days.
