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 surgery scale, 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 this surgery’s satisfaction rate is very high. Pearl Recovery Retreat & Wellness has 10 years of experience helping patients heal in comfort during breast reduction recovery. Take the stress out of the healing process by letting us pamper and take care of you after your surgery.
What to Expect During Breast Reduction Recovery
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 work and rigorous physical activity.
- Soreness and Pain: Soreness and pain are normal side effects you may experience after breast reduction surgery. Your doctor may prescribe one or two weeks of oral pain medications to take after the procedure during your breast reduction recovery. You can also alleviate pain and swelling by using ice packs as directed.
- Limited Activity: Fatigue and soreness will naturally inhibit physical activity for up to three weeks after surgery. Even if the pain subsides before, you will need to avoid exercise and heavy-lifting for the first month of recovery. Getting help from our experienced Pearl Wellness nurses team can be of invaluable convenience during this time as you navigate changes to your mobility, bathing routines, and sleep.
- Wound Care: During your recovery, you may have to wear bandages and maintain drainage tubes. Our team of all-female nurses is highly experienced in wound care and can help you dress your wounds and maintain your drainage lines without compromising your incision site.
