Preparing For Breast Augmentation

If you are considering breast augmentation, it is probably an exciting time for you. After all, the result will likely be larger breasts. However, as with any surgery, there is a recovery period. Being as prepared as possible for it could help it fly by a bit faster.

First, you should be preparing for Breast Augmentation and know what to expect as far as how soon your side effects will go away. You will likely see some swelling and bruising for about two weeks, and you may even feel some numbness in the area for the first week. There may be some discomfort or even pain for the first week or two, but your doctor will prescribe you pain pills that you should take as needed.

Most women can go back to work within about a week after breast augmentation. However, you may want to schedule some extra time off if possible to have a few more days to heal. Additionally, if your job requires heavy lifting, you should wait about a month before you go back to work. You can begin exercising within two to four weeks, but again, heavy lifting or vigorous exercise should be kept to a minimum for at least a month so that the chest area can heal.

Your breasts will look larger directly after the breast augmentation surgery, but some of that is likely to be swelling. You probably will not see the final result of the procedure for some time. Your breasts will sit high on your chest for about a month, and they will probably not look as natural as you wish just for this period of time. They will also feel very firm, which should go away eventually, resulting in the more natural look most women want.

Your doctor will advise you not to sleep on your stomach for at least two weeks after breast augmentation, but you probably will not be tempted to anyway due to the discomfort. You should also make sure that you have ice packs ready to go, which can reduce the swelling and some of the discomfort. Creating a comfortable space in your home with ice packs, pain pills, and plenty of pillows may help make the recovery period easier than ever.

The recovery time after breast augmentation is no worse than it is for most other surgeries. You can expect to take it easy for a few weeks for the best results. As long as you follow your doctor’s instructions, you should be happy with the outcome after you heal.

Recovery Tips

While the surgical procedure itself is vital in ensuring successful results of breast augmentation, recovery also plays an important role.

In order to avoid complications and ensure that surgical results are successful, Your surgeon will give each of their patients breast augmentation recovery tips. By following these tips, patients can promote a smooth and comfortable recovery.

  • Follow post-operative instructions: The most important step a patient can take in order to ensure that recovery is uncomplicated is to follow the post-operative instructions that are provided by your surgeon. Each patient will receive specific instructions on how to care for the incision site, how often to change bandages, any prescription usage, and when to return for post-operative care.
  • Have a recovery area: It is good to prepare a recovery area before going in for breast augmentation. After surgery, the patient should have a comfortable area to rest. The recovery area should have plenty of pillows, blankets, ice packs, and medication all readily available. It is also advised to have friends or family around to help with any needs for at least the first day or so following surgery.
  • Wear compression garments: It is important not to stretch or pull at the breasts, and especially the incision site, during recovery. Patients will go home wearing bandages or a compression garment. Not only is it vital to wear the compression garments as directed by your surgeon, but it is also a good idea to wear a close-fitting sports bra once the bandages or compression garment has been removed. This can offer further support while the breasts recover from surgery.
  • Avoid strenuous activities: It is obvious that a patient should avoid heavy lifting and high impact exercises during recovery. However, there are many seemingly simple tasks that can put strain on the body during recovery. Patients should be extremely careful that they do not push themselves too soon.
