Maybe you’ve joined the 15 million people, in the United States alone, who get a plastic surgery or procedure every year, or perhaps you’re thinking about getting one of your own. Breast augmentation is one of the most popular plastic surgeries one can get. Now, compared to any other time in history, is the safest, most time-efficient, cost-effective, and easiest time to get a breast augmentation with advancements in every aspect of the procedure from implants to recovery. Yet, when most consider getting plastic surgery or procedure, they forget to do research about one of the most essential aspects: the recovery. If you’re considering getting breast augmentation surgery and are wondering what the recovery process looks like, keep reading to find out!

What Is The General Recovery Timeline For Breast Augmentation? 

With a surgery and procedure as personal as breast augmentation, the timeline for recovery can vary. Factors such as the type of breast augmentation, the type of implant, the size of the implant, your lifestyle prior to surgery, your lifestyle after surgery, and even genetic factors around recovery can all affect how long it takes for you to see the full extent of your results. However, typically, the recovery timeline for breast augmentation is about six weeks.

What Is It Like Immediately After Surgery? 

Immediately after surgery, you can expect to feel groggy due to the effects of the anesthesia. You will need to be driven home and can expect some discomfort and swelling of the breasts.

What Is The First Week Like Post Breast Augmentation? 

By now, you can expect to be back into your routine: Going to work, showering normally, etc. However, at this point, you still shouldn’t be exercising vigorously and it may be best to exercise caution when it comes to strenuous activities. Your breasts will still exhibit swelling as your breast tissue begins to accommodate the implants.
