Dr. Fouda Neel is one of the leading surgeons in the field of cosmetic surgery. Prior to your procedure he will explain what is involved in your aftercare. It is important that you pick up any prescriptions for pain medication or antibiotics before your surgery. Not all patients require post-surgery antibiotics and Dr. Fouda Neel will discuss this with you during your initial meeting.
Your breasts will be bruised and swollen for the first few weeks, and they’ll probably feel heavy and tight. According to Dr. Ted Eisenberg, a Philadelphia plastic surgeon, in a RealSelf Q&A, “women report minimal discomfort after breast lift surgery.” But you should have pain medication prescribed for the first few days, just in case you need it. After that, Tylenol should do the trick.
