Usual post-operative follow-up
Immediately after surgery, a dressing is applied with a tight (compressive) bandage to prevent the implants from moving. One or two days after the surgery, the dressing can be changed and replaced by a new one with a high support bra* which should be worn day and night.
You will experience breast pain for a few days after the procedure. Although the sutures are removed on the seventh day, it is important to know that the breasts remain very swollen due to oedema and are likely to feel tight on the pectoral muscle.
You should avoid extensive arm movements in the first few days. You should wait at least three days before resuming normal activities, while taking certain precautions (avoid driving for the first two weeks, avoid carrying heavy loads, avoid sports for 6 weeks).
*Wearing a non-wired, front-opening compression bra is recommended for approximately 1 month. Your surgeon and you will choose your bra depending on the procedure method and your anatomy.
