Below are recommendations for aftercare. Without proper aftercare, frenulums may re-attach and negatively affect frenectomy results.

BEFORE/AFTERCARE

  • Bodywork within 48 hours before frenectomy (craniosacral/chiropractic with a provider who has experience with revisions)
  • Frenectomy procedure (click {HERE} for a recommended provider list)
  • Pain relief or Homeopathy
  • Gentle stretches/massages to the revised areas (see video below)
  • Bodywork within 48 hours after frenectomy (craniosacral/chiropractic with a provider who has experience with revisions)
  • Tongue exercises
  • Follow-up with an experienced IBCLC to work on latch

Watch this video to learn how to do the aftercare stretches!

Here is my aftercare kit:

  • Bach Rescue Remedy: Given before, after and as needed for emotional support
  • Little Remedies Pain Reliever: Given around 2-3 hours of procedure to take affect just before numbing wear off
  • Arnica Gel: I rubbed a little around jawline and around cheeks to help with swelling and tension
  • Aloe Vera Gel: Excellent carrier for the calendula oil. Offers immune and anti-inflammatory support (put this+few drops of Calendula on fingers when performing stretches)
  • Calendula Oil: This herb is extremely soothing and contains immunostimulant properties making it useful for disinfecting and treating minor wounds
  • Hylands Teething Gel: Numbing gel to use as needed
