The number of female millennials and older women seeking breast augmentation continues to multiply every day. This surgery provides one of the highest patient satisfaction rates, so it’s no wonder it’s the most frequently performed cosmetic surgical procedure in America. Advanced breast implant technology has diversified surgeons’ options for creating beautiful, natural-looking breasts to ensure every woman looks her best. The modern surgical techniques and recovery protocols make the breast augmentation recovery process safer, quicker, and a more pleasant experience for most patients. Below are some handy tips for a smooth recovery after undergoing breast augmentation.
1. Have help
After surgery, you’ll need someone to transport you to and from the surgical center. You’ll also need someone to guide and help you with chores around the house for a set amount of time after the procedure.
2. Create a relaxing environment
A pleasant environment works magic for a patient’s recovery threshold. Therefore, it’s important to create a comfortable and relaxing space beforehand in which you’ll spend most of your time after surgery. Make sure the new environment allows for easy access to healthy snacks, bottled water, comfy pillows, reading materials, and any remotes or electronics you may need.
3. Time off work
Although some patients may feel ready to return to work after a few days, it’s important to take at least some time off from work—particularly if you work an office job. If your job requires physical labor, expect to take more time off.
4. Plan ahead
Fill your prescriptions beforehand before the actual date set for surgery. Think of anything that might be essential to you immediately after you come from your surgery.
5. Follow instructions
Always follow our doctor’s instructions regarding your breast augmentation recovery, as this helps improve the likelihood that your recovery will go smoothly.
