Preparing for Breast Reduction Surgery

For those who are about to undergo the breast reduction surgery, you should know that proper preparation increases your chances of having a better outcome. It can help them not only physically, but also mentally and emotionally. This is particularly beneficial for patients during their recovery period. Having said that, each surgeon provides a different set of instructions on how to prepare for the surgery, and patients should follow them.

Nevertheless, listed below are some of the things that all surgeons will recommend you to do to prepare for the breast reduction surgery.

The first thing that you need to do is to stop smoking. Most surgeons won’t operate on patients who are active smokers. This is due to the bad effects of smoking on the body. Different surgeons may require a different duration on how long a patient should stop smoking before they can proceed with the surgery.

Smoking negatively affects the healing process of the body because it decreases the amount of oxygen transferred by the blood to the tissue. Ideally, patients should completely stop smoking, but if it is not possible for the patient, then she should stop before, during and after the surgery to ensure that the body heals properly.

On the other hand, onee of the most important things to prepare is your home or place where you are going to recover. You will be spending most of your time at home, which is why you need to make sure that everything that you need is already there. Stock on your supplies and make sure that you have easy access to them. There is no use in having much stock if they can’t easily be reached. Remember that you will be limited to basic movements for you to recover properly. This means no strenuous activities allowed, including reaching for things and carrying/lifting heavy objects.

It is also important to make sure that there is someone who can care for you even if it is just the first few days after the surgery. Your partner, family, friend or even a hired help must be the one to take you home from the hospital. They should also help out with your daily activities, so that you can do them with ease. They will also be responsible for doing all the housework because you still won’t be allowed. It would be good to have a helper who is a family or a friend, so that they can also offer you moral support.

You should also make sure that you eat nutritious foods. You will need all the nutrients you can get so that the body can heal quickly and properly. It would also be nice if someone can prepare the food for you. Even cooking can put unnecessary pressure on your surgical area.

Another thing, make sure you prepare your means of entertainment during your recovery process. You will be resting most of the time, and let’s be honest, it will be boring. Buy some books or movies that you could watch. With that said, you still need to make sure that you are comfortable by preparing enough pillows to support you.

Lastly, you should also prepare your clothes and choose ones that are loose and comfortable. It is important to choose clothes that are easy to wear too. It would be best to get buttoned down shirts, so that you don’t have to raise your hands and arms to wear or remove them.

Taking all these into consideration, these are just some of the basic steps you need to take in order to better prepare yourself for the surgery. While it may seem tedious or unnecessary to you, remember that this may affect your final results. So, it’s better to be prepared than left with unsatisfactory results.
