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.
