How painful is breast surgery?


Obviously this will vary some lot, depending on the techniques and on the patient. Commonly you will experience some level of pain or discomfort right after breast surgery, which will subside with time. Normal medication such as pain relievers will help those who wish to use them.

After a day or two the pain will settle and you may feel some tightness and possible discomfort. However, in most case the discomfort or tightness will be gone after three to four days. If the soreness or discomfort does not go away after five days, you should contact your clinic for further advice.
