Breast cancer surgery and breast reconstruction can be performed in a seamless transtion, one right after the other, totaling between 4 to 7 hours of surgical time.  Through this blog, Dr. Tzvi Small reviews the recovery from breast reconstruction surgery, and what you can expect during the process.

How Do I Recover from Breast Reconstruction Surgery?

Some women remain in the hospital for 1 to 2 days post-surgery.  For others, who have experienced the FLAP procedures, 5 to 6 days hospital stay can be expected.  The surgery does not interfere with chemotherapy or radiation.

Following surgery, a patient may experience a normal level discomfort.  While in the hospital, this pain level will be monitored, and pain medication will be administered.  Soreness, bruising, and swelling are normal for two to three weeks post-surgery.  There may be numbness and tightness along the area where tissue was removed, but this will diminish over time.

“How long will it take for me to get back to my normal activities?” is a question that Dr. Small encounters regularly.  For most women, regular activity can resume after 6 weeks post-surgery.  Dr. Small will discuss strenuous activities with you, and monitor when it is safe to return to all activities.

Following breast reconstruction, regular checkups and mammograms are essential.  Your physicians and Dr. Small will check to see your progress, and discuss any issue that may have arisen.

All about Breast Reductions

Feel Comfortable with Your Body

Some women can feel extreme discomfort from their large breasts.  They can feel self-conscious, and feel pain that radiates to their shoulders and back.  Some women can even experience difficulties breathing because of the weight of the breasts.

Dr. Tzvi Small is here to help.  With breast reduction surgery, you can finally feel relief.  Through this blog, you will learn about breast reduction surgery, and find out how it can help you feel confident with your body shape and comfortable in your own skin.  Keep reading Dr. Small’s blog to find out more!

Breast Reduction Surgery

A breast reduction procedure removes skin and tissue from breasts to both reshape the breasts and reduce their size.  Breast reduction surgery can change breast weight, size, firmness, and shape.

There are many reasons to consider breast reduction surgery.  Some of the reasons that women decide to move forward with the procedure include:

  • To Feel More Comfortable- large breasts can lead to back pain, neck pain, skin irritation, and issues with posture.  Reducing the breast size can alleviate this pain.
  • To Reduce the Constant Pull-heavy breasts can make bra straps leave heavy indentations in the shoulders and skin causing extreme discomfort.
  • To Participate in Sports- large breasts can yield limitations for certain sports activities.  Sports can become awkward and even painful when a woman has larger breasts.  Breast reduction surgery allows for a woman to fully engage in sports without experiencing the pain and discomfort associated with larger breasts.
  • To Change Appearance- larger breasts can be embarrassing, especially when they are not proportional to a woman’s natural shape.  It can be hard to find clothes that fit properly, and women might feel uncomfortable with their own bodies.

Dr. Tzvi Small can help women address all of these issues with breast reduction surgery.  This is typically an outpatient procedure with a relatively quick recovery.  After the procedure, the breasts will be rounder, firmer, and have more aesthetic appeal.

You deserve to feel comfortable with your body’s features.  Let our team of cosmetic surgery experts show you how it is possible to feel confident, happy, and out of pain for good!  Contact our Bergen County office to learn more about breast reductions.
