Breast Augmentation Surgery Recovery Tips and Information

As a breast augmentation patient, you will experience soreness and swelling after your surgery no matter what. However, there are some things you can do to make your breast augmentation surgery recovery as smooth as possible. In this post, Parkway Plastic Surgery will share some tips and information to help you recover.

Recovery Bras

As a way to reduce pain and heal more quickly, you should purchase a recovery bra. These bras help you in your recovery by making you more comfortable, providing stability for your implants, and helping to ensure proper lymph drainage. Fortunately, there are a wide variety of fabrics and styles, so you’re sure to fine one (or two) that work well for your body. Because you will always be wearing your recovery bra at all times after your surgery, you should find one that is comfortable. This means looking for features such as adjustable straps and breathable fabric as well as seamless and tagless design.

Preparing Your Home and Wardrobe

Immediately following your surgery, accomplishing tasks will be much more difficult. It’s a great idea, especially if you don’t have help, to complete housework, wardrobe shopping, and meal prepping/cooking done in advance so that you have time to rest and heal with less stress. You may also want to consider having your pain medications filled in advance so that you have them on hand and don’t have to worry about obtaining them. If you have small children who need to be taken care of, you should have someone at your home or a place for them to stay as you recover.
