It may be completely unexpected and nice if your drains are removed just the day after your surgery. Ask your doctor when he would do that because if you know that he will pull it soon, you can double up your pain medications.
If you are sensitive, don’t watch while he pulls it out. It may hurt a little and you may feel a little dizzy; but that may happen due to your medications and lack of food.

Your stitches may be removed from your nipples at around two weeks after the procedure. This will hurt quite a lot, so better take heavy doses of pain medications after consulting your doctor.

While returning to home after the surgery, you should choose a less bumpy road because every bump can cause a pain in the operated area. Also better keep a pillow in your car which you can place under the seatbelt that will go across your chest.
6. Don’t Purchase Bras Beforehand
Purchasing bras of new measurements before the surgery may be a wrong idea because until you are totally healed and the swelling is relieved, you get no idea of your final size. So, wait for some weeks before buying bras.

If your husband is not prepared for how your breasts will look post-op, he may get a bit of shock and horror to see your stitches and incisions that are swollen, bruised and bloody! You may console him that all this will go after some time.

This is VERY IMPORTANT! Never try to lift something heavy or perform workout for the first month post-op. After a month, you can take your doctor’s permission and start exercising without any problem.
