The first three weeks is considered to be the critical healing period during which you will be required to significantly restrict your activities. This may include time off work depending on your role.
Avoid strenuous exercise for around three months and you should expect to have surgical dressings to provide support to your breasts for one week. These will then be changed to a post-operative compression garment which will need to be worn for three months.
All surgery will create scarring however our team makes every effort to ensure they are as inconspicuous as possible. We use fine stitches and a specific positioning of the incisions to make all scars difficult to see. They will also fade over time.
It can be normal for scarring to be red and raised for some months, even taking up to a year to vanish completely. Information and advice on scar management will be provided to you.
