What will my recovery entail?
Las Vegas breast lift patients can usually return home on the same day of their procedure, provided they are accompanied by someone (such as a friend or family member) who can stay with them for the first one to two days. Upon release, patients will receive a detailed list of post-procedure instructions, a compression garment that will help mitigate any swelling in the chest, and prescription pain medications that will ensure the patient has a comfortable and speedy recovery.
It is normal for patients to experience some soreness and tiredness after the surgery. Nonetheless, patients are usually able to resume their regular activities within the first week of the recovery process. However, patients should refrain from all forms of strenuous exercise, heavy lifting, or physical exertion for at least 3 to 6 weeks unless otherwise recommended by the physician. They are also instructed to wear a support bra that doesn’t have an underwire throughout this period of time. For the first six weeks, scars typically appear pink and firm but will slowly fade away over time. The patient’s healing process will be monitored to ensure an easy, quick recovery.
