Revision Breast Surgery Recovery

Revision breast surgery is a procedure often chosen by women wishing to correct or improve the results of previous breast surgery. While this procedure can represent a fresh start, the recovery period following revision breast surgery is crucial to ensure optimal results.

Post-operative follow-up to revision breast surgery at The Ottawa Clinic

At The Ottawa Clinic, our dedicated professionals provide meticulous follow-up care right from the first consultation, where all aspects of recovery are explicitly discussed. The extent of surgery required to meet your personal needs will determine the length and nature of recovery, with particular attention paid to previous incisions used to minimize additional scarring.

Revision breast surgery at The Ottawa Clinic is often performed on an outpatient basis, allowing patients to return home the same day. This approach has the advantage of reducing the inconvenience associated with prolonged hospitalization, while promoting a rapid return to a comfortable environment for convalescence.

The quality of our post-operative care, combined with surgical expertise, promotes a smooth recovery. For a well-supported recovery, our surgeons establish a tailored follow-up program, including pain management, advice on physical activity and regular follow-up visits.

Resumption of activities

The specific details of recovery will vary from patient to patient, depending on the extent of surgery and individual response to the healing process. Post-operative instructions provided by our surgeons are personalized, emphasizing the importance of following guidelines to optimize results and minimize the risk of complications. Patient education on incision care, symptom management and the gradual resumption of daily activities forms the basis of a successful recovery, contributing to a positive post-operative experience.

Some of our patients feel able to return to work or their routines in just a few days, while others prefer to allow themselves more time to fully recover their well-being. A cautious approach is therefore essential, especially when it comes to sustained physical exertion. To ensure optimal healing and allow the implants to stabilize perfectly, our surgeons recommend avoiding strenuous activity – whether sport, heavy lifting or other major demands on the breasts – for a period of five to six weeks after surgery.
