Recovery after Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is one of the procedures with the highest patient satisfaction. It is simple to do, and the patient can see the results right away. The surgery is very simple. An incision is made. Dissection is performed, and an implant is placed either below or above the muscle. The recovery is also very fast; you can recover within 48 hours.

When it comes to the recovery, I notice that patients who have a breast augmentation through an inframammary incision, meaning an incision at the fold, recover faster than patients that have an incision around the areola. If the patient has an incision around the areola, there is more bleeding and inflammation, and this tends to prolong the recovery.

When you go home after the breast augmentation, you will notice that I placed Dermabond over the incisions. Dermabond is a liquid suture that protects and reinforces the incision after it is closed with sutures. I like to place Dermabond so that when you get home, you can take a shower with warm water and you can continue with your daily activities. You can start eating a soft diet and advance the diet as tolerated. In addition, within 24 hours you need to start doing breast exercises by lifting your arms and squeezing your breasts, walk around, and get out of bed; this will actually help expedite your recovery. With this surgery, we do not place any drains at all. The incisions are small and the dressings will keep any bacteria from invading the area and causing infection. You will have a follow-up visit at the clinic within a week.

Your pain should be minimal and controlled with regular medications like Advil or ibuprofen, but in severe cases or patients that have a low threshold for pain, a narcotic or Talwin will be provided. I do not like patients to be taking narcotics, because it prolongs the recovery, since it can cause nausea, vomiting, constipation, and itching, among other things.

Whenever you decide to come in for breast augmentation surgery, you need to realize that you will not need to take a lot of time off: you will probably be back to work in three or four days. Some patients actually go back to work within 24 to 48 hours. If you want breast augmentation, do not wait to make a decision. Issues like recovery and return to work are minimal, and ultimately you will be extremely satisfied with your results.
