Revision Breast Reconstruction Recovery

Recovery from revision breast reconstruction varies depending on the specific procedures performed and individual healing factors. You may experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising following surgery, which can be managed with prescribed medications.  Dr. Higdon uses advanced prescribing methods that he helped develop, with a multi-modal analgesia approach that minimizes the need for narcotic prescriptions for his patients after surgery.  Following Dr. Higdon's postoperative instructions is important to promote optimal healing and minimize complications. Regular follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor progress, assess the results, and address concerns. We advise patients to avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting during the initial recovery period to allow tissues to heal properly. With time, swelling will diminish, and the final results of the breast reconstruction revision will become more apparent. Most individuals can gradually resume their normal activities within a few weeks, but it's essential to adhere to Dr. Higdon's recommendations for a successful recovery. Our team is prepared to support you through your recovery, so please get in touch with Higdon Plastic Surgery with any questions that arise as you heal.
