Caring For Your Body After Breast Reconstruction Surgery

Tallahassee Plastic Surgery

Following a breast reconstruction, Tallahassee physicians recommend that patients follow a strict aftercare program to ensure proper healing.

Once you’re ready to return home, your doctor will give you a list of follow-up care instructions, such as caring for your incision, taking medications orally or applying them directly to the incision to prevent infection, looking out for warning signs, and following up with your surgeon.

Follow-up care instructions typically advise the patient to

  • Rest
  • Eat a diet rich in raw fruit and vegetables
  • Do not smoke, as smoking increases the risk of complications
  • Take all prescribed medications. Do not take any products containing aspirin unless approved by your doctor

The healing process will continue as localized swelling goes down and sensitivity and motion improves. Be sure to follow all of your physician’s instructions and go to all scheduled follow-up appointments.
