What is the Recovery Time for Breast Augmentation?
After your breast augmentation procedure, you will experience various stages of healing. For the first few days, you will need to rest at home. This is an ideal time to enlist family and friends to help you with day-to-day tasks, such as eating, bathing, and using the restroom. You will feel tired and sore during this period of time, and Dr. Hueneke may recommend a prescription or non-prescription pain medication to help you stay relaxed.
After the initial recovery time, you will need to limit your activities as required by Dr. Hueneke. This protects the sutures and helps the tissues heal properly. You may be required to stay at home resting for one to two weeks.
In the months after your breast augmentation, the swelling gradually subsides. If, during this time, your breasts do not look as expected, understand that inflammation can mask the final results. You will also see the incisions start to heal and form a pinkish scar line. The scar will eventually change to a color that is slightly darker than your natural skin tone, but it will not disappear completely.
