How to Care For Yourself after a Breast Reduction Surgery

After your breast surgery is completed, the incision will have gauze dressing and will be wrapped in a surgical bra or bandage to hold your breasts in place. During the first or second day, you might experience pain or discomfort. Your surgeon will prescribe medicine for pain and discomfort.

 

Showering : The doctor will advise you not to go for a bath for the first few days after surgery.

 

Surgical Bra : The drainage tube and bandages should be removed two days after the surgery but the doctor will advise you to wear the surgical bra for a month.

 

Exercising : During the first couple of weeks after breast reconstructions, you should limit exercises to bending, stretching and swimming up until your stamina returns. Avoid heavy pushing or lifting for one month.

 

Watch Your Drains : Instead of allowing swelling around the area where your surgery was done, your surgeon will install clear hoses for gradually draining your fluids. You should track the amount of fluid going out to help your doctor determine the right time to take of your drains- normally after 1-2 weeks.

 

Be on the Look Out for Lymphedema : One of the major occurrences during post surgery recovery is a condition known as lymphedema. This condition affects only 25% of patients that have undergone breast surgery. The major symptom for lymphedema is that your arm swells up in the area where your lymph nodes were removed.

 

How to Prepare for Recovery : You should be prepared to spend at least two weeks at home. During your recovery after surgery, you will be limited to light activities like watching television and reading. It is also advisable to read magazines and books. The following are other tips you should do:

 

  • Stock your house with meals that are easy to fix such as frozen dinners. Buy canned drinks and bendable straws instead of using heavy bottles for beverages.
  • Have frozen peas or soft ice packs for applying to sore areas.
  • Put cups and plates and other items in low places that are easy to reach.
  • Have slippers or slip on shoes to prevent you from bending down.
  • Use button front tops to avoid pulling clothes over your head.
  • Have a cotton sports bra that has no seams and which hooks in front.
  • Have several pillows on hand.

 

How Long Does Full Recovery Take? : Breasts do not get their final shape as soon as the surgery is complete. It might take six months to recover from surgery. The scars you will get from surgery are permanent and can remain red and lumpy for months. The scars become less noticeable with time and usually fade and become thin white lines.

 

It could take a while for you to adjust to your new look but you should be patient. Breast and areola reduction surgery is a cosmetic procedure that has shown the highest rate of patient satisfaction compared to other procedures. A majority of the women who go through this surgery are satisfied with the results.
