Breast Augmentation

What You Can Expect After Breast Augmentation

After I perform your breast augmentation, my patients feel it takes about 3 weeks to feel like themselves again. About two days after surgery, my patients come into the office so I can remove their initial dressing, and put them in a post-operative bra, which clips in the front, making it easier to maneuver.

Pain after surgery is expected and normal. Not is the pain only due to the surgery itself, but also to the muscle’s response to the presence of the implant. If the implant is under the muscle, the muscle has to stretch, which is also painful, (like doing the splits). Pain pills (analgesics) and muscle relaxants will help reduce the pain.

It takes about 3 weeks to feel like yourself again. Usually one day after surgery, my patients come into the office so I can remove their initial dressing, and put them in a post-operative bra, which clips in the front, making it easier to maneuver and put on or take off. Once the large surgical dressing is off, you can apply ice to the chest to help with swelling and any discomfort.
