Breast Augmentation Recovery
Typically, breast augmentation recovery instructions require the patient to take in plenty of rest and avoid strenuous physical activities in order to heal properly. Since breast enlargement is responsible for altering the body contour, a surgical bra will be worn for several weeks while the incisions heal and swelling reduces.
Some patients report experiencing tightness in the breasts as well as sensitivity, all of which are temporary as the breast tissue and muscles adjust to conform naturally to the body. Most patients in good overall health are able to return to their normal activities within a week with limited physical activity for the next six weeks.
