Some pain and discomfort may be experienced – this may be managed by taking pain medication as prescribed by the surgeon. Swelling and bruising may last for a few weeks – these may be managed by wearing compression garments and applying ice packs. Since the surgeries involve incisions, these may leave scars, the size and visibility of which vary depending on the type of procedure and the individual’s healing process. Scars lighten over time. As with any other surgery, there will be a risk of infection, therefore it is very important to follow post op care instructions carefully and to call the surgeon if any of the following signs appear – fever, redness, swelling and discharge.
