In the postoperative period, dressing changes will be combined with the rehabilitation program run by our physiotherapists to reduce inflammation, speed recovery, and minimize scarring. During follow-up, your progress will be assessed to ensure that you are progressing correctly. Our physiotherapy team will perform techniques that they have developed to reduce the appearance of scars. Although each person evolves differently, in general terms recovery will include the following steps:
One week after the procedure, you can shower and return to work, provided it is a quiet and sedentary job. After several weeks of the procedure, the inflammation will have gone down, and you will start to see the final results. You will be able to start exercising and move your arms freely when directed by your doctor. The average time to fully resume your activities is usually four to six weeks.
