Is there a list of must haves to be prepared for post op?

Hello and thank you for your question. Each surgeon has their own set of rules and instructions post-op. You should follow-up with your surgeon for specific instructions. I wish you the best of luck!

I appreciate your question.
I would recommend that you discuss this question with your surgeon as every surgeon has their own respective post op protocol for his/her patients. Your surgeon is your best resource as he/she is most familiar with your medical history and how you will be healing following surgery.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
Best of luck!

List of 'must haves' for post-op recovery?
Thank you for your question. Many patients are pleasantly surprised by their recovery from breast reduction. Your surgeon can review his/her particular pain medication regimen, soft bra support, activity level, etc. It is always helpful to have some easy meals prepared or planned. The most important recommendation that I can give, is to remain in communication with your surgeon post-operatively. If you have questions or concerns after your procedure, your plastic surgeon will want to hear from you. Best of luck with your upcoming surgery.
