Here is the basic info I provide to patients regarding post-operative healing ad the breast lift:
The patient will go home in a bra or with only light dressings
over the incision lines. Sutures are dissolvable but an ending knot, if present
is removed within 1-2 weeks. Initial discomfort is easily controlled with oral
medication. Light activities may be started in 7-10 days.
If you find after those first ten days that you are still concerned with your healing process, then it would be good to visit your surgeon for a follow-up and have the area examined to make sure that healing is going well. Good luck.
