Did you ever wonder what the recovery is like after a breast surgery? The immediate or post-operative recovery after your breast surgery by Dr. Gregory Diehl, patients are given a bit of time to let the anesthesia wear off in his comfortable recovery room before they are free to be driven home. A recovery nurse is assigned to a patient for a private one-on-one monitoring for your maximum comfort. If necessary, pain medication will be administered by our anesthesiologist. After being fully recovered from anesthesia and dressed, the patient is ready to go home with a responsible and capable adult who can stay with you for the first day.
Most patients do not experience much discomfort after a breast surgery due to Dr. Diehl’s gentle technique and report that in just a couple of days they can resume most normal activities. Most patients rely on over –the counter pain medication such as Tylenol, only.
