Recovery is entirely dependent on the procedure performed. If liposuction is performed there will be swelling and bruising that will resolve gradually over the first 3 months. If a “keyhole” incision is made around your areola there will be bruising and the scar will take time to heal and then fade. If the double incision and free nipple graft procedure is performed the incision are larger and will take slightly longer to heal. Regardless of the technique, patients are instructed to wear a compressive garment over their chest for 4 weeks after surgery.

I had the BEST experience with Dr. Stein & his whole team. Getting any sort of surgery can be a bit overwhelming, but thanks to Dr. Stein, all my questions were answered perfectly and I felt so comfortable with his expertise. He listens to you, speaks very kindly with compassion and explains the surgery thoroughly. The office staff is so friendly and personable – I always feel very welcomed when I visit.
Dr. Stein performed High-Def liposuction on my abdomen, flanks and chest and I am so happy with my results! After just a couple of days I was able to return to work/normal day-to-day tasks and after just two weeks, all my bruising was gone and I was back to working out. Currently, I am six weeks post-op and my results are way more than I was expecting at this phase. You can clearly see the definition with NO contour irregularities or bumps. I always hated the muffin top I had, but that thing is GONE. My incisions are not even the slightest visible, either, which I was originally concerned about. I am so excited to see what 3 and 6 month post-op looks like.
If you are looking to get liposuction or any sort of cosmetic procedure with the best results, Dr Stein needs to be your first call, because it will be your last!
