How long should I wait post op before doing a mammogram?

Mammograms after surgery
Thank you for your question. I typically advise no aggressive touching of the breasts for 6 weeks post op. At this point you should be well-healed but your breasts may still feel sensitive. I recommend that you ask your Plastic Surgeon for their recommendation.
