Breast Reconstruction Surgery Day
Your breast reconstruction surgery day will begin by arriving at the surgery center about 1 hour prior to the start of the surgery. You will be greeted by the registered nurse, and your vital signs will be taken. You will meet with our board-certified anesthesiologist, and you will meet with Dr. Hughes to finalize any surgical plans and ask any additional questions.
You will then be given relaxant medication, and you will be put to sleep by the anesthesiologist. The breast reconstruction surgery takes between two and four hours to perform. You will have some minimal dressings on your breasts, which are to remain intact.
Breast Reconstruction Follow-up and Recovery
Patients will return for follow-up within 3 to 7 days. Patients can usually go back to work in about one week. Patients should avoid strenuous activity or exercise for at least 6 weeks. Incisions should be left dry and intact to ensure the best possible scarring. Patients who perform too much activity or who stretch or place tension on the incisions may open the incisions, which can result in a much wider scar or poor shape (which can necessitate a revision).
