BREAST REDUCTION - PREPARATION
You will need to purchase a sports bra to take with you to the hospital. The size of the bra will be determined at your consultation with your Cosmetic Surgeon.
If you are a smoker, take aspirin or any other medication, your Cosmetic Surgeon will wish to discuss this with you at your consultation. Your Cosmetic Surgeon will advise you when you are to discontinue and resume these activities.
The Day of your Breast Reduction Surgery
Your Cosmetic Surgeon will visit you in your room and mark your breasts in preparation for surgery, and will be there to answer any last minute questions you may have.
When you wake up from the anaesthetic you will have dressings and your supportive bra in place. You will be offered pain relief should you require it, and there may be drainage tubes in place in each breast. These drains will be removed before your discharge from hospital. You can expect to be in hospital for one or two days. This will be agreed with your Surgeon prior to your admission.
