Breast augmentation in Scottsdale gives you the opportunity to improve the size and shape of your breast
so you feel more comfortable about the look of your bust. If you and Dr.
Geoghegan have decided that this is a good procedure for you, keep reading
to find out what you can expect during your recovery:
Time in the Recovery Room
Immediately after the surgery, you will be taken to a recovery room so
the medical team can keep a close eye on you. They will monitor your vitals
to make sure your body is responding well to the surgery. You will have
a gauze dressing and an elastic bandage or a support bra to decrease swelling.
Most people are allowed to go home after a few hours.
Before you leave the surgery center, you will receive instructions that
help you figure out how to take
care of your breasts while they heal. These instructions will also give you information about medications that
you should take to decrease your risk for infection. It is very important
to follow these instructions closely. If you have any questions throughout
the treatment period, call Dr. Geoghegan for clarification.
Most patients will wear a support bra for two to three weeks after surgery
to support the breasts as they heal. It is important to relax for at least
24 hours after the surgery and reduce your activity levels for the next
few days. Talk with Dr. Geoghegan about how long to wait before returning
to normal physical activities, but most patients will need to avoid exercise
for 3 weeks.
