What to Expect During Breast Augmentation Recovery
At Pearl Recovery Retreat and Wellness, we’re dedicated to making sure you recover from your cosmetic procedure in the most comfortable and effective way we can provide. With private recovery rooms and private duty nursing, we make sure that you get what you need to restore full wellness so that you can truly enjoy your new look. If you’re looking to stay with us during your breast augmentation recovery period, we can offer some guidance on what to expect after your procedure, and how you can help make things easier for yourself during your stay.
Taking It Easy
It goes without saying that breast augmentation surgery takes its toll on you as much as any other kind of invasive procedure. It should also go without saying that, during your breast augmentation recovery, you should take things as slowly as you would after any other surgery.
It’s important to allow yourself the downtime to heal. Your body needs rest, and overdoing it in any way will not just be painful, but exhausting. Without the right amount of relaxation, your body will also struggle to recover, and healing will take that much longer. You should especially avoid things like heavy lifting or demanding physical activities for at least six weeks after your procedure.
Swelling and Scarring
During breast augmentation recovery, you should expect significant swelling immediately after your procedure. You’re also going to see more obvious scarring during this period, too. Don’t be alarmed by either of these – this is perfectly normal. The gauze and surgical bra you’ll be given during recovery will help to minimize swelling to a reasonable degree, but the healing process will take care of most of it.
As part of this more immediate period of recovery, you might have drainage tubes fitted for any fluid that might build up. Again, this is normal, and will be removed within a few days without causing additional scarring.
Be Aware of Possible Complications
Unfortunately, all types of surgery come with risks of complications – elective or essential. During your breast augmentation recovery, it’s important that you help to keep a look out for signs of complications. This way, any medical intervention you might need can be provided quickly. This includes looking for signs of leaking after drainage tubes are removed, excessive pain that isn’t helped by pain medication, or feelings of sickness or a fever that may suggest infection.
You Won’t Look the Way You Want Until You’re Fully Healed
Another important factor in breast augmentation recovery is that you should check your expectations. Remember that healing takes a while, and you’re not going to look your best until you’re fully recovered. Be patient, relax, and enjoy your break at Pearl Recovery!
