At Pacific Plastic Surgery Group we have worked hard to minimize downtime and discomfort in Breast Augmentation Recovery. Our developed plan begins before the surgery even begins with choosing implants that fit the patient’s frame. Pain medication is prescribed prior to the operation for afterwards and a topical antibacterial soap is also prescribed to be used in the days leading up to the procedure to reduce infection risk. Just prior and during the breast augmentation surgery we utilize long-acting local anesthetics to minimize discomfort afterwards. After the procedure anti-inflammatory medication is used to increase mobility while reducing pain. Light exercise are assigned, and early mobility is encouraged.
Most patients are able to rerun to work within a week of the procedure and incision typically heal in 1-2 weeks. Two months after the procedure, most patients are ready to slip into their new bras or swimsuits with full confidence. It is important to keep in mind that every patient’s recover is different, so it is important to listen to your body throughout your recovery and consult with your plastic surgeon in San Francisco if you have any concerns.
