During your consultation, you can talk to Dr Priti about your desired breast shape as well as anything else about your breasts that you would like to see improved.You can see the typical clinical pictures of patients to satisfy yourself about the procedure and ask any questions regarding the results, and possible risks of the surgery.
You should come to the consultation prepared to discuss your medical history. This will include information about any medical conditions, drug allergies, medical treatments you have received, previous surgeries including breast biopsies, and medications. It is important for you to provide complete information. You should tell if you plan to lose a significant amount of weight, particularly if you have noticed that your breasts become smaller with weight loss. It is recommended that you stabilize your weight before having surgery.Routine diagnostic tests to assess your fitness for surgery and Anaesthesia will be ordered.
You are up and about the same day of surgery. After a week usually, you will be able to move about more comfortably. Straining, bending and lifting must be avoided, however, since these activities might cause increased swelling or even bleed. You may be instructed to sleep on your back to avoid pressure on your breasts.
Your dressings will be changed after two days in the doctor’s clinic. You can have a shower from the 4th day after surgery and can remove your dressings and wash your breasts as well. You will be given instructions about self-dressing at home after bathing every day. Initially, you will notice your breasts to be swollen and sometimes with black and blue patches. Breasts also feel numb and tender. The shape may look a little odd initially. You will wear a support bra for a few weeks until the swelling and discoloration of your breasts diminish. Stitches are self-absorbable.
