Getting Breast Augmentation is a big step towards restoring your confidence and feeling great in your own skin, but do you know what to expect from the recovery process? Take a look at our quick guide, so that you understand exactly what will happen after your surgery and how quickly you can get back to your daily life.
After your surgery
Right after your procedure, it is normal for you to experience some swelling, bruising, and mild pain. Since this is a surgical treatment on your chest, your breathing may be a little difficult and your chest may feel heavy or tight. Depending on your level of pain, you might receive a prescription for painkillers from your doctor, but you won’t have to spend any time overnight at the clinic or hospital.
The recovery process for Breast Augmentation can last for a couple weeks, but should be relatively worry-free if you take appropriate precautions.
You will experience minor pain and soreness over the next couple of weeks, so give yourself lots of time to rest! Your body has just been through a lot, so try not to put too much pressure on your arms or chest. This means avoiding heavy working or intense exercise. You should also plan time off of work in advance as you won’t be able to return for at least two weeks.
Your surgeon will schedule follow-up appointments with you to make sure that you’re recovering properly. However, you should be on the lookout for these signs that you should seek medical help:
- Severe pain, swelling, or burning
- Coloured discharges with a powerful smell
- Skin redness
