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.

However, the postoperative stage is not as simple as it sounds. The patient’s discipline is critical if you want to see the utmost result of the surgery. In my practice, 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. When you go home after the breast augmentation, you will notice that I placed Dermabond over the incisions. This is why it is always mentioned that the technique used by the surgeon can greatly affect the overall procedure.

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.

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. Just make sure you choose the right surgeon.
