Once you have decided to undergo breast lift surgery, you will want to start planning for your surgery and recovery. Please ask Houston breast surgeon Dr. Lapuerta all of your questions prior to your procedure. He will explain the process for the procedure and everything you will want to do to prepare. You may have additional questions and Dr. Lapuerta will be more than happy to answer them.
To prepare for your breast lift surgery, you will want to make sure you have someone to drive you to and from the hospital where you are having your procedure. You will not be able to drive yourself and you may want someone with your for the first day or two to help you during your recovery.
Make sure you have your pain medications filled before the procedure. You will not feel well enough to have them filled after the procedure, and you will want them immediately on hand.
When you have your prescriptions filled, you will want to purchase some recovery foods. Recovery foods are any foods that are easy to prepare and eat. Some of these foods include:
- Frozen foods
Set up your bed and couch with pillows, blankets, movies, books, and other easy entertainment for your enjoyment. Having these items on hand and within your reach will make your recovery more pleasant and easy. You will not feel like getting up and choosing a book or movie. Having them near you will help aid in your recovery by allowing you more rest.
