Breast Augmentation Recovery: Week Two and Beyond

denver, Boulder, and lone tree, colorado

No pain, no gain may be the uncomfortable truth for women preparing for breast augmentation. But, the pain is short-lived and well-tolerated by the majority of women.

Our goal is to help our patients recover as quickly as possible! Usually within a few days, you are back to normal activities! Starting with your decision to schedule surgery at Broadway Plastic Surgery, we begin the process of helping you to recover quickly. Encouraging you to stop smoking, and to continue on with a sound nutritional program is part of the plan. We will begin antibacterial scrubs and nasal ointments to decrease the risk of infection beginning the week of surgery. Intraoperatively, we use a long acting local anesthetics that will help you to begin moving and stretching even in the recovery area. Early motion will minimize discomfort and help you to return to your normal activities which should occur within the first week. We expect you to be off all pain medication very quickly.

Long-Term Commitment

With our counseling, you will learn how to care for yourself in the weeks following surgery. The first week actually has few restrictions, and you will return to normal daily activities. Limited physical activity can began as early as two weeks following surgery.While the implants you usually settle into their proper place quickly, and elastic band maybe used to expedite the process. The implants will also feels softer with time and very soon we’ll feel almost natural.Incision sides can take several months to heal fully. At first, they may appear pink and elevated, but they will settle down overtime. We offer postoperative treatments such as silicone-based gel ointments, laser treatments, and micro needling as needed to expedite your healing and minimize the appearance of the incisional scar.

To help prevent swelling, reduce your salt intake, and drink plenty of fluids, especially water. Be careful to avoid the diuretics found in so many ordinary foods and drinks. Caffeine, alcohol, and many herbals can dehydrate you. Maintaining your hydration is essential for healing and for beautiful skin.

Be sure to get plenty of rest. Sleep at least eight hours per night, and at regular times. Of course, you can expect to need more sleep in the weeks immediately after surgery, so pamper yourself and take those naps.

 

Exercise should be gentle but regular. Moving and walking will help increase circulation needed for healing, and will reduce the chances of blood clots forming. To minimize pain and encourage healing, avoid lifting, bending or straining until Dr. Broadway says you are ready for the increased stress on your body.
