What happens after this procedure?

After getting breast surgery, your breasts will be dressed with gauze or bandages. You may also wear a surgical bra. You may be discharged to go home immediately after surgery or spend a night in the hospital for observation if your condition is not stable. Temporary tiny drainage tubes will also be inserted beneath your breast skin to drain out any accumulating fluids. Breast pain and swelling is normal after surgery, but pain medication will help you cope. You should also take antibiotics to help prevent infection. Staying away from any strenuous work for the next 6 weeks or more is advised. If you have stitches, they will be removed within 2 weeks. Drains and dressings will be removed after about 2 days following surgery. Your new breast contour will be more apparent after a few months. You will feel good about your new look and you can wear a variety of clothes.
