After Rib Removal Surgery

From the moment of your surgery

  • Rest: It’s crucial to take absolute rest for the first 48 to 72 hours following surgery. Avoid any physical exertion or activities that could compromise your recovery.
  • Medications: Strictly follow your plastic surgeon’s instructions regarding prescribed medications. This includes painkillers, antibiotics, and any other prescribed medication.
  • Bleeding control: It’s normal to experience a slight amount of bleeding at the incision site. Apply gentle pressure with a sterile gauze and keep the area clean and dry. If bleeding is excessive or does not stop, contact your surgeon immediately.
  • Pain and discomfort: It’s normal to feel pain and discomfort at the incision site and in the upper torso. Your surgeon will prescribe painkillers to manage pain and instruct you on applying cold compresses to reduce swelling.
  • Sleeping position: Sleep on your back during the first few weeks after surgery. This will help reduce swelling and pain.

Results from your Rib Removal Surgery

  • Improved breathing: You will notice better ability to breathe deeply and increased oxygenation, giving you more energy and vitality.
  • Relief from chronic pain: Removing the floating ribs will eliminate the source of chronic pain that has been bothering you, allowing you to enjoy a pain-free life.
  • Greater freedom of movement: Experience increased flexibility and range of motion in the upper torso, ideal for everyday activities or physical exercise.
  • Posture correction: Your posture will significantly improve, eliminating a hunched posture and preventing back problems.
  • Enhanced self-esteem: Feel more confident and secure with your body, free from discomfort and limitations that affected your personal image.

What discomforts and precautions should you consider?

  • Swelling: It’s normal to experience swelling in the incision area and upper torso during the first few weeks after surgery. Swelling will gradually decrease over time.
  • Bruising: Bruising around the incision site is normal and will fade on its own within a couple of weeks.
  • Scarring: Incision scars will be discreetly located around the waist area and will become less visible over time.
  • Physical activity: Avoid intense physical activities during the first 6 weeks after surgery. Your surgeon will advise you on when you can resume your usual exercise routine.
  • Diet: Maintain a healthy, balanced diet to help maintain a proper weight and promote good healing.

Important recommendations

  • Attend all follow-up appointments: It’s crucial to attend all follow-up appointments with your plastic surgeon so they can assess your progress and ensure that your recovery is proceeding correctly.

  • Follow your surgeon’s instructions: It’s important to strictly follow your plastic surgeon’s instructions regarding medication, wound care, diet, and physical activity.

  • Avoid smoking: Smoking can delay healing and increase the risk of complications.
