What Results Will I See?*
Most patients can see results about 6 to 8 weeks after surgery, when a majority of swelling has subsided. Final results can take up to a year to be visible, as minor swelling may take place over this time. Breast symmetry surgery can produce excellent results, with many patients feeling incredibly satisfied with their new appearance.
What is the Recovery Like?*
Most of the recovery takes place over the course of 6 to 8 weeks. During the first week, you should expect to spend plenty of time resting and recuperating at home. You may be cleared to return to work after the first or second week, depending on the nature of your job. After a few weeks, you may be able to wear normal bras as opposed to surgical compression bras. You may be cleared for physical activity at the six-week mark, depending on your doctor’s advice.
