Recovery after Breast Augmentation
You may feel stiff and sore in the chest region for the first 2 to 5 days after your breast augmentation at our Pensacola area practice. Any dressings will be removed within a week, and you may be instructed on the proper bra to wear. Your breasts may feel tight and sensitive to the touch, and your skin may feel warm or itchy. You may experience difficulty raising your arms. You should not lift, push or pull anything, or engage in any strenuous activity or twisting of the upper body. We understand that a lot of our patients are moms with little ones at home and they are concerned with some of the restrictions post surgery. Therefore, it is important to discuss some of your limitations with the doctor so proper instruction can be given to help you post-procedure.
After 2 to 3 days, most people do not require pain medications other than an occasional dose at night. Some bruising and swelling will occur initially, but this will disappear over the course of 1-2 weeks. Most residual swelling will resolve within a month.
