What will my recovery be like?
Patients may have some soreness for 2-10 days and can resume non-strenuous activities 24-48 hours after surgery. However, strenuous upper body activities need to be avoided until at least five weeks after the procedure. Dr. Kayastha will provide you with instructions on specific implant displacement exercises that you will need to perform during the recovery period. You will also be given instructions on the following: how to care for your breasts, medications to take to reduce risks of infection, and when to return for your follow-up visit. During the first two weeks, you will need to wear a support bra to minimize swelling and support your new breasts.
