Breast Surgeries Prior To Holiday Season

Posted On: December 08, 2016 Author: Dr. Stuart Linder Posted In: Breast Augmentation, Breast Implants, Breast Revision, Breast topics, Implant Removal

As the holiday season approaches, my Beverly Hills practice always seems to be very busy when it comes to breast surgeries. This year is no exception, as my operating room staff and I performed seven breast surgeries yesterday. Those procedures included two breast implant revision surgeries due to ruptured saline implants, two breast implant revision surgeries due to capsular contracture, two implant removal and exchange procedures, and one primary breast augmentation.

Most patients elect to have this surgery during this time to take advantage of their holiday vacations for their recovery after the procedure. Recovery time varies due to the type of breast procedure ranging from two to three weeks. After surgery, patients are sent home with a Bias wrap and gauze in place. Patients should avoid heavy lifting and raising their arms above their shoulders for three weeks. Postoperative visits are scheduled over the next six weeks as needed.
