Aftercare for Your New Breasts - Weinstein Plastic Surgery Center

Aftercare for Your New Breasts

ModelOur New Jersey breast augmentation practice has given more and more women the sweet satisfaction of having larger breasts. No more slouching because you have nothing to show off. It’s time to keep that chest out and show the confidence in you.

But before anything else, remember that your responsibility does not end when the surgery is completed and your plastic surgeon sends you home. You have to take care of your new breasts to make the most out of your breast augmentation procedure and to have an easy and quick recovery.

Recovery after breast augmentation

Immediately after the procedure, you should already be able to walk even without assistance. Walking is an essential post-procedure routine in order to prevent the formation of blood clots in the legs.

During this time, it is also crucial that you follow every patient care instruction that your surgeon provides to you. During your recovery, you will most likely be advised to wear compression garments and take prescription antibiotics. Your surgeon may also provide you with instructions on how to take care of your drains, if any. The recovery time for breast augmentation varies for every individual. You can recovery quickly if you follow all instructions carefully.

Your first week

  • After two to five days, you may feel stiffness and soreness in the treated area.
  • After the procedure, you will be instructed to wear a supportive bra. Your surgical dressings may already be removed after a few days.
  • Taking a shower may be permitted in about a day to a week after surgery.
  • You can return to school or work within a couple of days to one week.
  • Your doctor may advise you to avoid activities that involve lifting, pushing, or pulling. Any strenuous activity could cause pain and discomfort.

After two to six weeks

Excessive physical routines and exercises should be avoided during this time after surgery. Over the next month, you should take extreme caution when engaging in physical activities. Intimate contact should be limited according to your level of comfort.
