Breast Augmentation

Although it is exciting, preparing for a breast augmentation can be stressful, as many patients are anxious about the recovery period. However, provided you follow the advice of your plastic surgeon, your Miami breast augmentation recovery can be a breeze!

Tips For A Speedy Recovery

  • Follow all pre and post-operative instructions provided by your plastic surgeon carefully: During your consultation, your plastic surgeon will provide you with a detailed list of instructions for your care both before and after the procedure. Be sure to follow all instructions carefully and ask your surgeon if you have any questions.
  • Attend all scheduled appointments: Following your procedure, a series of follow up appointments will be scheduled in order for your plastic surgeon to monitor your progress. It is imperative to attend all postoperative appointments, as they give you the opportunity to address any questions or concerns you may have with your surgeon and ensure that you are healing well.
  • Allow yourself time to rest: Although it is difficult for some people to take a break and “switch off,” it is necessary to do so as you recover to be sure that you allow your body sufficient time to heal.
  • Drink plenty of water and follow a healthy diet: Maintaining a healthy lifestyle post-operatively will help to speed up your recovery. Be sure to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and feed your body with the nutrients it needs by sticking to a healthy diet.
  • Massage your breasts: Your plastic surgeon may recommend that you massage your breasts as you recover from your Miami breast augmentation to soften them and prevent capsular contracture.
  • Schedule one week off from work and other responsibilities: To allow yourself time to rest after your procedure, it is necessary to schedule at least one week off from work and other responsibilities. Patients with small children should arrange for someone to help them around the house to be sure they have sufficient time to rest.
  • Take the time to prepare: One of the best ways to ensure that your recovery is speedy and stress-free is to take the time to prepare prior to your procedure. Stock up on water, healthy fruits and vegetables, and any medications you may need ahead of time so you can simply relax after your surgery.

Timeline Of Your Miami Breast Augmentation Recovery

  • Two to three days post-operatively: Within the first two to three days of your recovery, you may experience some tenderness and minor swelling or bruising. Medication will be prescribed to alleviate your discomfort and a compression garment may be recommended to reduce swelling. Long-acting numbing medications injected during surgery make the first couple of days much easier. Our Enhancement team will recommend that you not perform vigorous activities with your arms in order to give related muscles a rest.
  • One to two weeks post-operatively: Approximately one week after your procedure, you can begin to resume some daily activities. However, strenuous physical activities should be avoided along with bending and lifting.
  • Four to six weeks post-operatively: After one month, it is safe to resume most physical activities, provided they do not target the chest muscles. After 6 weeks, upper body workouts, heavy lifting and wearing an underwire or push-up bra are no longer off limits.
