Breast Augmentation & Lift Recovery

in Albany, NY

What can I expect during recovery?

The breast augmentation and lift recovery is typically a little longer than an augmentation or lift performed alone. Patients can expect swelling and discomfort for a few days to up to a week and can be easily managed with a prescription pain medication. Patients usually require at least a week off work to properly rest and recover at home. During this time, movements that could strain the chest should be avoided. Any strenuous activity should be avoided for 5-6 weeks. The exact length of your recovery will be gone over during the initial consultation.
