What to expect following surgery
After surgery, some discomfort may be felt over a few days, especially when the implants have been positioned behind the pectoral muscle. Swelling and bruising often occur. Doctor Merle will be able to prescribe appropriate medication to help reduce any discomfort.
The shaping compression bandage is removed a few days after the procedure and then a specially adapted support bra must be worn for 2 months. Any sporting activity should be avoided for at least one month after the operation
Can other operations be combined with a breast augmentation procedure?
Dr Merle can also perform a breast lift at the same time as the augmentation procedure if you have ptosis of the breasts (sagging).
Another option that Dr Merle can propose at the same time as performing breast augmentation surgery is lipofilling. This involves removing fatty tissue from your thighs, buttocks or abdomen to re-inject into the breasts to complement the implant and achieve an even more harmonious result.
