The Importance of Post-Op Instructions

Here’s a little known fact about breast implants in Dallas: What occurs outside of the operating room is just as important as what takes place inside the surgical suite. In order to maximize your results, it is extremely important to follow your surgeon”s post-operative instructions. Doing so greatly improves your comfort level and can help accelerate the healing process. Ignoring certain medical directives can increase your risk for complications, such as infection, and even cause more discomfort. Additionally, it may negatively affect your aesthetic results. Here are some tips on how to have a safe, fast, and successful recovery:

  • Go through your post-operative instructions with your surgeon before your procedure. Be sure that you understand every detail, and ask your surgeon for clarification if necessary.
  • If you have the help of a friend or loved one during your recovery, discuss the post-operative instructions before your procedure. It is important that they are as familiar with this information as you are.
  • Make extra copies of your surgeon”s instructions. This way, if you lose a copy or forget certain details, you have a back-up.
