Breast Reconstruction Recovery Bundle
What is Breast Reconstruction?
Most often, breast reconstruction happens after surgery to treat or prevent breast cancer. Providers use it to reshape breasts and rebuild damaged or missing tissue. They may also perform this surgery to restore symmetry. This means they make both breasts the same size and shape. Breast Reconstruction surgery options can include: APEX Flap, DIEP Flap, TRAM Flap, STACKED Flap, TDAP, and Hybrid Breast Reconstruction, among others.
Breast Reconstruction Recovery Experience
Breast Reconstruction surgery recovery typically takes 6 - 8 weeks. The actual recovery time will vary person to person, depending on which surgery you get. During this time, you are likely to experience:
- fluid drainage (may be collected with JP drains)
- localized pain at incisions
- general discomfort
- hot flashes
- reduced mobility & independence
Our products help manage the drains and reduce your pain, helping you feel calm, secure, and in control as you recover.
