Quick facts

How long is the surgery?
1.5 to 2 hours.

General or local anesthesia?
Depending on the extent of surgery required the operation can be done under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia.

Recovery time?
7-10 days.

When can I exercise?
Starting at 2-4 weeks depending on the extent of the procedure.

Is it painful?
Mild to moderately painful. Tylenol is usually sufficient after 2 days.

Do you use drains?
I use drains in more extensive cases to prevent fluid collections from building up. All patients are asked to wear a compressive vest for 2-4 weeks.

When can I shower?
Water proof bandages are placed at the end of surgery to allow patients to shower right away. If drains are used, a shower is not advised until the drains are removed.

When do I go home?
The same day as surgery.


Dr. Sandra is the best. She has knowledge, compassion, understands what your looking for. Kind, considerate, explains everything. there are not enough words in the dictionary to describe her 100%. You have to met and interact with her and you will know exactly what I am talking about lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.
