After an internal bra procedure, you will experience swelling, bruising, pain, and redness in the treatment area. Drains will be used to minimize swelling and they may be in place for 5-7 days. You should expect mild to moderate discomfort but oral pain medications are prescribed to make the recovery more comfortable.
You may experience temporary numbness or loss of nipple sensitivity after the procedure. It is advised that you rest for one week after surgery. After one week, you can return to work as long as it is not strenuous, and after 3-4 weeks you can begin physical activity.
Even though the procedure has the word “bra” in it, it is recommended that you still wear a bra regularly to ensure long-lasting results.
