Care around surgery

Dr. Stanwix meets with all his MTF patients in at least two consultations to go over the surgical details and the postoperative care. Here, Dr. Stanwix will let you know which medicines not to take before surgery (such as ibuprofen, aspirin, etc) and what to expect from surgery. After surgery care is important. Dr. Stanwix will place you in a compression bra and likely a surgical drain. He uses skin glue and advanced techniques such that you can shower the next day, and your drains only stay a handful of days. Depending on which type of MTF surgery you had, he will have you back into most activities within 2 weeks or so.
