Breast Augmentation Recovery

What is the recovery like after breast augmentation?

The recovery after a breast augmentation is usually considered relatively easy. Surgery is done on an outpatient basis. We allow our patients to shower starting the day after surgery. We recommend that they do not have the water spray directly on any incisions but rather let soapy water gently run over their incisions. There are no drains left in after a breast augmentation. Most patients are able to return to work in 2-3 days. The patient starts implant massages typically three or four days post op. These massages are done several times per day for several weeks.

I ask my patients to restrain from a lot of physical activity for the first couple of weeks. We then very gradually increase their level of physical activity from week 2 to week 6 at which point they have no restrictions. There is an upper extremity ten pound lifting restriction for six weeks. Certainly at all times during the recovery we remind our patients that if an activity hurts then to please not do it. Also, it is not uncommon to have transient changes in nipple sensation where there is either hypersensitivity or decreased sensitivity in the first few weeks after surgery. Should either case arise it usually resolves on its own. Some ladies after surgery even notice some swelling around their abdomen. This is most likely fluid from irrigation at the time of surgery. This resolves in a few days.

Ladies generally inquire about what they can wear soon after surgery. We recommend wearing a comfortable loose fitting shirt that buttons or zips up the front on the day of surgery. This is also a comfortable item to wear over a cami which we recommend after surgery until the first office visit. We transition ladies to sports bras after that and then over time they are back to wearing underwire bras. Many women choose a less structured bra with no wire during this period due to sports bras limiting clothing options.

  6. Breast augmentation is performed to balance a difference in breast size, improve body contour or as a post-surgery reconstructive technique. Silicone gel filled with implants are implanted either directly under the breast tissue or beneath the chest wall muscle, giving breasts a fuller and more natural contour.Breast augmentation will make your breasts fuller and enhance their shape. In addition, you will find it easier to wear certain styles of clothing and swimwear.
