What Is The Gold Coast Breast Reduction Recovery Process Like?

Patients can experience some breast pain or discomfort for some weeks after surgery. Most patients can manage pain symptoms with some over-the-counter pain medication. One should also expect to feel some slight stinging around the incision sites.

Following the instructions from your clinic will promote healing and reduce the chance of infection. There are also some additional treatments you can obtain after your surgery to promote the healing process and enhance results. While these treatments are by no means obligated, some patients can find them useful to deal with some of the side-effects and to speed up their healing process.

Strenuous physical activity should be avoided during the initial recovery period; this since it could cause problems with stitches or could cause complications. However, patients should do some light walking, as this reduces the chance of blood clots after the procedure. Patients can do some light walking during the first 24 hours after their procedure but should still get sufficient rest.

Some patients will have some drainage tubes placed to remove any fluids remaining after the procedure. Dr Lanzer and his associates will give you clear instructions on how to look after the treatment area when you leave the clinic.

Patients should also expect a scar after the procedure, which is left due to the incision. Scars after a breast reduction fade over time and can be quite different depending on the technique used. For example, when the large breasts mainly contain fat, the cosmetic surgeon can use a liposuction technique, which only requires a few small nicks to be made into the skin. Glandular tissue removal on the other hand, can require a bigger incision and can therefore leave a more noticeable scar.
