What Results Will I See?*
Most patients can see initial results immediately after surgery, as your breasts may appear smaller and your back, neck, and shoulder pain may be completely gone.
Some swelling may continue to be present for a few months after surgery, with final results visible around the six-month mark.
What is the Recovery Like?*
You’ll do the brunt of your recovering for the first week after the surgery when you’ll be encouraged to rest and recuperate. During this time, you should wear compression garments to help ease post-op swelling and bruising. You may be cleared to return to work about one to two weeks after the surgery, depending on the type of job you perform. Patients can resume strenuous physical activity about six to eight weeks after the surgery.
