Breast cancer can be a difficult experience, and there’s no question that breast removal can be among one of the most painful decisions a patient is forced to make. Fortunately, Dr. Markelov and his incredible surgical team at Elevé Plastic Surgery offer breast reconstruction to patients in Wausau, Stevens Point, and the surrounding areas.
Your Breast Reconstruction Recovery Process
Breast reconstruction is very similar to a standard breast augmentation surgery, and Dr. Markelov will take care to go over your aftercare instructions with you before your actual procedure takes place. You’ll need to limit your activities for a week or two following your procedure, while the bruising and swelling has a chance to go down, and can expect to return to your normal life within three to four weeks of your procedure. We’ll set up follow-up appointments to make sure you’re healing up properly.
