Following surgery, bandages are applied to the breasts to facilitate healing. You will also be provided with a support garment. Some pain and soreness can be expected, but this can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication. Sensitivity and tenderness will probably persist for about a week. Dr. Freund will schedule follow-up visits to monitor your recovery.
For the first two weeks following surgery, physical activity should be minimized. It is important during this time to avoid placing any strain on your incisions and to avoid any activity that might significantly raise your pulse. Dr. Freund will provide explicit advice about when to resume exercise and other activities. As the months’ pass, the scars will fade, and the aesthetic results of your surgery will become more apparent.
