Breast Reconstruction: Q&AAsk a Question
What is a Typical Post-op Visit Schedule After Implant Reconstruction?
For tissue expander-to-implant reconstruction following bi-lateral nipple sparing mastectomy for breast cancer, what is a typical follow up schedule starting right after the surgery for exchange to final silicon implants? I understand that healing issues could change the timing and number of post-op visits, but barring serious problems, what is the ideal number and timing over the following weeks and months? Or even years? What might it be for later revision later surgery, if necessary?

Followup for 2nd stage implant breast reconstruction
I like to see patients the day after surgery
