Location of operation: Surgery Center or hospital.
Length of surgery: 2-4 hours
Length of stay: Overnight or Out-patient
Discomfort: Moderate. Anticipate 3-7 days of prescription pain medication. This can be reduced through the use of long-acting local anesthetics used by your surgeon at the time of surgery.
Swelling and Bruising: Improve in 2-4 weeks.
Bandages: If bandages are used, they will be removed in 1-3 days.
Stitches: Will be removed in 5-7 days or will be absorbable. Most plastic surgeons use stitches which absorb, so removal is not required.
Support: You will wear a sports bra or ace wrap for 1-4 weeks. Avoid an under wire bra until your surgeon approves it.
Back to work: 1-2 weeks.
Exercise: May be resumed in 2-4 weeks.
Final result: Will be seen after the scars have matured, which will take about 1-3 years.
