Now that you’ve completed your breast procedure, it’s time to focus on the next important step in the process: the breast augmentation recovery. Before you worry too much, understand that the surgeon will gladly guide you through this every step of the way. Our top priority is to always ensure our patient’s safety.
The breast augmentation recovery process begins once the procedure is complete. A special dressing is gently applied that will remain until you return for your first post-operative visit. You will leave that visit wearing a cotton surgical bra. Ideally, this should be worn at all times for about a month and removed only for showers.
Expect to have some degree post-operative soreness or chest pressure for at least 24 hours after surgery. Pain medication will be given to help with any discomfort during this time. The sutures will remain intact for about two weeks after surgery. The removal process is fast and easy.
