Dr. Geoffrey Fenner is a skilled plastic surgeon with years of experience helping his Chicago patients achieve their desired body shape. He strives to provide his patients with rewarding results in a safe, comfortable environment and is ranked as one of the best breast surgeons in Chicago.
Even with the best breast surgeon in Chicago, the surgical experience will require a substantial healing process. In general, you can expect to take one week off sedentary work. As you recover, it is important to rest often and avoid bending at the waist, lifting heavy objects, and straining.
You can expect to experience some pain and discomfort during the first few days, though these effects can be managed with pain medication. We recommend having a friend or family member stay with you during this time to help with your care.
Post-surgical swelling that persists for several weeks is common and to be expected. Once the swelling subsides, your results will be considered final. Your scars will be pink for a few weeks and can take several months to fade.
