Breast augmentation recovery

Breast augmentation is one of the most commonly performed procedures in the cosmetic surgery world. It is also one of the cosmetic surgeries today with the highest rate of patients’ satisfaction. The surgery is simple to do especially if the surgeon has already years of experience under his wings, just like Dr. Cortes.

In this procedure, a small incision is placed in different access areas around the breast, after which the implant is placed either above or below the muscle. In general, the patient has minimal or no pain after this procedure. The recovery is also very fast as you can recover within 48 hours.

Complaints are mostly feeling pressure around the breasts. Typically, the patient needs to rest for at least two to three days. Breast massages are important for the recovery process, especially during the first few months after the surgery. Patients should completely recover after a week.

Exercise can be performed after three weeks and heavy lifting after one month. It is important to note that there will be some swelling and bruising. Taking arnica is recommended before and after surgery to reduce the swelling.

After surgery, the breasts should settle in about a month. Recovery after breast augmentation is not as difficult as one might think as it is one of the surgeries that does not require long periods of rest. As a matter of fact, most patients can have surgery on Friday and get back to work on a Monday.

So before you decide to undergo breast augmentation surgery, you must first understand that you don’t need to take a lot of time off. As long as you follow your surgeon’s recommendations before and after the surgery, you might be able to go back to work within two days. Risks associated with the surgery are also minimal.
