What is the recovery like?
Following your breast augmentation surgery, you will be sent home in a soft, wire-free, front-opening bra. You will need to wear this bra continuously for the first four to six weeks to facilitate healing and minimize swelling. Post-operative discomfort is directly related to the size of the implant chosen but is readily managed with pain medication and stretching exercise that we urge our patients to begin immediately following surgery. You can expect to resume light activities within a few days and can return to work within one to two weeks. You may begin a light exercise routine in approximately three weeks after surgery, and full physical activity after six weeks.
