When a major life event like breast cancer causes a dramatic change to your bust, a breast reconstruction surgery can be one of the best ways to reclaim your appearance and regain your sense of self confidence along with it. Garrett Wirth, MD, MS, FACS offers breast reconstruction surgery to patients in Newport Beach and the surrounding areas, and if you think this procedure might benefit you, we’d love to hear from you.
After Your Breast Reconstruction Procedure
Immediately following your breast reconstruction, the incisions will be properly dressed and bandaged and you will likely be given an elastic bandage or support bra to wear to help reduce swelling and to support your newly-rebuilt breast. Be sure to follow whatever instructions are provided by Garrett Wirth, MD, MS, FACS and his team. In the weeks following reconstruction, avoid subjecting incision sites to excessive stress, motion, force, or abrasion.
The aesthetic outcomes of your breast surgery will be noticeable immediately. In time, residual swelling and irritation at incision sites will also decrease, but incision lines will always be visible to some degree. You will work closely with Dr. Wirth to evaluate the results of your cosmetic surgery and to ascertain whether or not further operations or treatments will be beneficial.
