Breast Augmentation Recovery

After undergoing breast augmentation surgery, many women have questions about their new breasts and how their life will be impacted because of them. Will my shirt fit better? Will anyone notice? When will my full, true results show? These are just some of the questions that may go through your mind during your breast augmentation recovery.

What to Expect After Surgery

After your breast augmentation surgery, there will be a few different stages of recovery that you will experience: immediately after, the first week, three weeks later, and full recovery.

Immediately after surgery, you will feel groggy and sore. It is important that you have someone there to drive you home after your surgery is completed.

You will be the sorest during the first week of your breast augmentation recovery. Most patients use prescribed pain medication to lessen the pain and discomfort. Patients may resume desk work, but they must take it easy.

A few weeks after that, patients will start to feel better, but they will not be fully recovered. Women may resume light exercise routines but nothing with sharp, jolting movements, like running. Pain should be minimal at this point, and it should be easier to resume more normal activities.

Most patients are fully recovered about two months after their breast augmentation surgery. It is crucial that patients keep their scheduled follow-up appointments with Dr. D’Souza so that he can monitor the progress of the augmentation recovery.

Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation®

Iconic Plastic Surgery offers Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation®, which was developed by Dr. D’Souza to lessen the time in the operating room and the recovery time after your breast augmentation procedure. With this procedure, Dr. D’Souza cauterizes any damaged blood vessels to reduce bleeding and swelling after surgery.

Preparing Your Home

It is important that you prepare your home with the proper equipment to help you heal fully and perfectly. Having a fully stocked pantry and refrigerator with healthy foods and hydrating drinks, an easily accessible wardrobe, and someone there to help with any housework or childcare needs is beneficial to your breast augmentation recovery. As noted above, you may be out of commission or, at least, operating a little bit slower than usual after your surgery, so any help will go a long way.

Love Your New Figure

Breast augmentation recovery can be tiresome, but loving your new figure and the confidence it brings will be effortless. Enjoy the little things, like buying a new shirt or bathing suit, or even just showing off your new curves at lunch with a friend. Be proud of your body and the new breasts you have always desired!
