The postoperative phase of the healing process depends on the patient’s personal characteristics and other variable factors. During the first days you are likely to feel pain, the body temperature and swelling can rise up, which will disappear later on.
Typically, a day after the surgery the patient stays in the clinic and medical professional postoperative care is ensured. If everything is going smoothly and you are feeling good after the first day – you can go home. On the first day you can feel stronger pain which will gradually decrease and later on there will be only an ache. For some time, your breasts will be more sensitive, particularly in the nipple area.
The stitches will be removed and your postoperative health condition will be evaluated one week after the surgery. Further visits to the surgeon will be discussed. If the breasts are dry after the operation, a neutral cream can be applied several times a day, leaving a dry area around the seams. The increased sensitivity of the nipples and breast skin will slowly diminish, but will not completely disappear for half a year after the procedure.
Since the results are visible right after the surgery, no doubt, that the recovery period will be pleasant and certainly will not take long.
Each surgical procedure has a risk of complications that may be associated with anesthesia, infection, bleeding, and swelling. However, these complications are rare and are usually avoided. The team of Sapiega clinic will provide all the necessary tools for your recovery and the risks will be minimal as long as the patient cares for herself after thesurgery, as well as contributes to both risk reduction and breast beauty and well-being.
