Recovering From Breast Augmentation

A common question of many Orange County breast augmentation patients ask is what the recovery process will be like. Although the length of recovery depends on the extent of your procedure, there is a general timeline you can expect to follow.

Once I complete the surgery, I typically apply a support bra. With the exception of walking around for circulation, I recommend that patients stay in bed or at a recovery center for the first two days following surgery. This rest will help your body”s natural healing process.

During the first week, you should keep activity to a minimum, as you will likely feel sore and have some swelling. These side effects could last for a few weeks, but you will be prescribed medication to assist you in feeling more comfortable. Most patients are able to return to work within 4 days of surgery.

Scarring is minimal with breast augmentation, so once the body heals there should be little indication that you underwent surgery. For a more in-depth analysis of your healing process, speak with a qualified surgeon in your area.
