The sutures are absorbable. For about six weeks after the operation you should take it easy and completely avoid physical strain and sports activities. During that period you will be wearing a special bra that aids the healing process. During the first three months after the operation please refrain from visits to the solarium, sunbathing without covering up your breast, and sports. Please consult us on when you can start again having a shower or a bath.

For your own safety it is strongly recommended that you come for the agreed monitoring appointments. If your breast has been operated on using the classical incision techniques, the final result will already become apparent within a few weeks. If the scar-saving method has been used, it will take about six months for the final result to show itself.
