Following your surgery, dressings or bandages may be applied to your incisions, and you may be wrapped in an elastic bandage or a compression garment to minimize swelling and to support your abdomen as it heals. A small, thin tube may be temporarily  placed under the skin to drain any excess blood or fluid that may collect. Within a week or two, you should be standing tall and confident about your new slimmer profile.

Be careful

Following Dr. Tavoussi’s instructions is key to the success of your surgery. It is important  that the surgical incisions are not subjected to excessive force, abrasion, or motion during the time of healing. Your doctor will give you specific instructions on how to care for yourself.

Be sure to Ask Questions

It’s very important to ask Dr. Tavoussi questions about your breast lift procedure. It’s natural to feel some anxiety, whether it’s excitement for your anticipated new look or a bit of preoperative stress. Don’t be shy about discussing these feelings with your plastic surgeon.
