Recovery after Breast Surgery

It is important to keep in mind that the recovery time after a breast procedure may vary from patient to patient. Some patients may require shorter downtime while others will take several weeks to recover. The length of your recovery will greatly depend on several factors such as the extent and type of your surgery, your healing ability, your body type, and your treatment goals. Immediately after your surgery, you may experience soreness, bruising, and pain on your surgical site. These discomforts can be alleviated by taking pain relievers and anti-inflammatories. To support your healing breasts, you may need to wear a support bra or compression garments. In addition, you will be advised to prevent strenuous exercise and activities to avoid tension on your suture lines.

Potential Risks and Complications of Cosmetic Plastic Surgery

Dr Turner, as part of the comprehensive informed consent process, will meticulously address the potential risks and complications associated with plastic surgery during your consultation. His utmost priority is to ensure your well-being and he will outline the measures he will undertake to diligently manage and minimise these risks. It is important to note that despite all precautionary efforts, surgical complications can still arise.

The success of any surgical procedure heavily relies on the collaborative efforts of both the surgeon and the patient. We kindly urge you to actively participate in this partnership by diligently following Dr Turner’s instructions. Prioritise ample rest, maintain a nourishing diet, and allocate sufficient time for a smooth recovery, as these factors significantly contribute to expediting the healing process.

Outlined below are the general risks that pertain to all surgical procedures:

  •  Postoperative infection: There is a possibility of developing an infection following the surgery.
  •  Bleeding or hematoma: Occasional bleeding or the formation of a hematoma may occur.
  •  Poor scarring, including keloid scars: Although efforts are made to achieve favourable scarring, there is a chance of suboptimal scarring, including the formation of keloid scars.
  •  Blood clots in legs or lungs: In rare instances, blood clots may form either in the legs or lungs.
  •  Revision surgery needed to correct or improve outcome: It is important to acknowledge that additional surgical intervention may be required to rectify or enhance the initial outcome.

By maintaining open communication, adhering closely to Dr Turner’s guidance, and implementing appropriate self-care measures, we can enhance the likelihood of achieving a remarkable outcome. Your well-being is of paramount importance to us, and we are committed to providing you with the highest level of care throughout this journey.

Frequently Asked Questions

Questions about Breast Procedures

Will a breast procedure increase your risk of breast cancer?

Breast surgery will not increase your risk of getting breast cancer. In addition, having breast implants will not hinder the detection of breast tumors.

Can you have breast implants if you have sagging skin?

This will depend on the degree of skin sagging. If you have extreme sagging of the skin, another procedure may be needed to lift your breasts so that they appear younger and well-defined. Breast implants are recommended for patients with a mild degree of skin sagging. During your consultation with a top surgeon, your breast condition will be first assessed if you are a good candidate for breast implants.

How many months should you delay pregnancy after having breast implants?

It is recommended to postpone pregnancy for at least 6 months after your surgery. This allows your breasts to adjust to its new shape and size.

What should I do before my Facial Surgery?

During your consultation with a top surgeon, you will be advised to avoid any blood-thinning medications, smoking, alcohol, and prolonged sun exposure a week before your surgery to ensure optimal results and lower your risk of complications.

Will my Private Health Insurance cover my Facial Surgery Expenses?

In most cases, your health insurance plan will not cover your facial surgery expenses because it is considered cosmetic and ‘elective surgery’. To reduce your financial burden, Dr Turner can provide you with information about a range of medical financing options during your consultation.

How can I minimize discomfort after my Procedure?

Aside from taking pain relievers and anti-inflammatories, your surgeon will advise you to use an ice compress over your surgical wound to minimize facial discomforts. Before discharge, your surgeon will teach you how to care for your wound.

How long will the Results of my Facial Surgery Last?

Several factors will affect the clinical outcome of your surgery including your surgeon’s skills, the type and extent of your surgery, how you care for your wound, and how you adhere to post-surgical instructions. In general, the results of face surgery are permanent and can last for several years. However, you may need another surgery at some point in your life to maintain your younger-looking skin.
