Thankfully, breast augmentation surgery recovery is smooth sailing for many patients at Cosmetic Surgical Group in Miami, FL. Here, we’ll take a look at what you can expect from the recovery process.

Immediately After Surgery

When you wake up from your surgery, your surgeon will check on you and talk with you about your procedure. You may feel a little dizzy and confused as the anesthesia continues to wear off. You may feel sore and tired.

You’ll need a friend or family member to drive you home after surgery, and it’s a good idea to have someone stay with you the first few days after your procedure since your mobility will be somewhat limited. We may prescribe pain medication to help you relax as your body heals.

The Next Day

Your surgeon may want to see you for a follow-up visit the day after your procedure. Be sure to follow the surgeon’s instructions carefully so that you heal as quickly and easily as possible. Typically, it’s recommended that you wear a sports bra or compression bandage over your breasts to help support your healing.

The Following Weeks

Your surgeon will give you clear instructions about when it’s okay for you to return to your normal activities. You’ll need at least a few weeks off before you return to work, even if your job doesn’t require you to be physically active. Your surgeon will ask that you stay away from strenuous activities for at least two weeks after your procedure.

When to Call Your Doctor

If you notice something that seems abnormal, you’re unsure about whether you’re developing an infection, or something simply seems off, don’t hesitate to reach out to your doctor.
