Breast Reduction Recovery
For women, breast reduction procedures are performed not just for cosmetic reasons but also to alleviate discomforts such as neck pain, back pain, and difficulty during sports. Because of the relatively large scale of the surgery, breast reduction recovery will take longer than simpler procedures such as tonsillectomies and rhinoplasties. Don’t let the longer and more difficult recovery time discourage you, though, as the satisfaction rate for this surgery is very high.
Pearl Recovery Retreat & Wellness has 10 years of experience helping patients heal in comfort during their breast reduction surgery recovery and recovery from other delicate procedures. Take the stress out of the healing process by letting us pamper and take care of you after your surgery.
Breast Reduction Recovery: What Will I Experience As I Heal?
No matter how busy you are and how robust your body is, we highly recommend following your doctor’s instructions during your breast reduction surgery recovery timeline. Doing so will help you minimize pain, scarring, and avoid potentially devastating complications. To ensure you take the appropriate time to heal, expect to take about one or two weeks off from work and rigorous physical activity.
Soreness & Pain
Soreness and pain are normal side effects you may experience after breast reduction surgery. During your breast reduction recovery, your doctor may prescribe one or two weeks of oral pain medications to take after the procedure. You can also alleviate pain and swelling by using ice packs as directed.
Fatigue and soreness will naturally inhibit physical activity for up to three weeks after surgery. Even if the pain subsides before then, you will need to avoid exercise and heavy-lifting for the first month of breast reduction recovery. Getting help from our experienced team of Pearl Wellness nurses can be of an invaluable convenience during this time as you navigate changes to your mobility, bathing routines, and sleep.
During your breast reduction surgery recovery, you may have to wear bandages and maintain drainage tubes. Our team of all-female nurses are highly experienced in wound care and can help you dress your wounds and maintain your drainage lines without compromising your incision site.
