Following the procedure, you will need to stay in the hospital overnight.
Once you have returned home, depending on your age and general fitness, you will need to rest for two to six weeks. We recommend that you take at least 2 weeks off work and avoid strenuous exercise for at least 6 weeks.
Swelling and localised discomfort will subside within a few weeks, but you will need to wear a support bra, with no under-wire, for at least 6 weeks.
Scars are usually quite red for the first six weeks after surgery. They then change to a purple colour over the next three months before fading.
