What to Expect during a Breast Revision
Your breast revision will most likely be done using a general anesthesia and may take up to a few hours. After your procedure, you may be instructed to avoid heavy lifting and get lots of rest. Downtime for a breast revision varies by the individual; however you should plan for at least a week before going back to work or normal activities.
