Guidelines for a safe, quick recovery includes;

  • Wear the provided surgical bra for the first 6 weeks (this supports your breasts and promotes proper healing and shape definition)
  • Refrain from heavy lifting or strenuous aerobic exercise for at least 4 weeks after surgery
  • Take medication such as simple pain relief and antibiotics

 

During this recovery period you can contact Dr Girardi’s office if you have any concerns. The first post-operative review is generally 1-2 weeks after surgery.
