Tips for Easing Your Breast Augmentation Recovery
At Pearl Recovery Retreat and Wellness, we know that recovering from a breast augmentation procedure can be difficult. During breast augmentation recovery, you are likely to experience some swelling, nausea, and pain, but by following a few basic recovery tips, you can reduce these symptoms and speed up the recovery process. To prepare for your breast augmentation recovery, follow these tips from Pearl Recovery Retreat and Wellness.
Manage Your Pain
During the first week of breast augmentation recovery, you are likely to experience some pain. Depending on the extent of your surgery and the size of your implants, pain can vary in severity. Some people experience only mild discomfort, requiring nothing more than over-the-counter painkillers, while others suffer more severe pain and require prescription medication. Talk with your doctor before your procedure about the amount of pain you will experience, and purchase the recommended pain medication.
Use Creams and Lotions
As your implants begin to settle, you will experience some mild swelling, tenderness, and discoloration – but do not worry, these symptoms should subside in a few weeks. To ease these symptoms, be sure to utilize therapeutic creams and lotions which will reduce the swelling and soothe sensitive areas.
Unfortunately, scarring is a necessary evil of breast augmentation. However, an experienced plastic surgeon will make incisions around the breast fold or near the armpit to reduce the appearance of scars. In the first few weeks after your surgery, your scars may be more pronounced and noticeable. To reduce the appearance of scarring as much as possible, be sure to use topical lotions or silicone tape for a few weeks after your surgery.
Plan for Quiet During Breast Augmentation Recovery
Breast augmentation recovery is not an easy process. Afterwards, you will feel drained and tired, and you will need a quiet place to rest. Avoiding stress and resting in a tranquil environment is sure to ease your discomfort and speed up the breast augmentation recovery process.
