What is Recovery After a Breast Augmentation Procedure?

Breast Augmenation Recovery Time

You can’t wait to see how you look after your breast augmentation procedure.  You’ve been dreaming of the day when you can fill out that spaghetti-strap dress or rock a bathing suit with confidence.  In fact, you’re so looking forward to the future that you almost forgot about the time you’ll need to devote to recovery.

If your favorite reality TV shows are anything to go by, you’ll be a recovering mess for a month.  You’ll need to take weeks off of work, and it’ll feel like decades before you can get back to your usual gym routine.  All the recovery time is enough to make you reconsider getting a breast augmentation.  But before you pick up that phone, it’s time to reconsider…

Because your recovery time might be easier than you think.

At Song Plastic Surgery in Irvine, California – also serving the greater Orange County area – Kyle Song, M.D. and his talented staff are dedicated to providing patients with superior breast augmentations.  Dr. Song prides himself on producing natural-looking breasts that will restore your confidence and keep your friends guessing.

So what can you expect from your recovery after a breast augmentation procedure with Dr. Song at Song Plastic Surgery in Irvine, California?

It’s important to note that recovery time can be a lot faster than you might think.  After the procedure, you’ll be provided with pain medications that will last you for one day.  This might be shocking, especially if you imagined that recovery from a breast augmentation procedure would take longer.  However, most patients are able to switch to using over-the-counter meds for occasional pain and soreness after this first day.

Two days after your breast augmentation procedure, you can hold your baby or equivalent weights.  What’s more, you can be back to work in three to four days after your procedure (there goes your excuse for a week-long vacation!).  Patients can resume their normal activities within the week after a procedure, except for their gym routine.  Dr. Song recommends that patients refrain from going to the gym for at least two weeks after the procedure (also, be sure to buy a sports bra that will fit your new implants).

When it comes to looking and feeling your best, nothing beats Dr. Song’s breast augmentation procedures in Orange County.  Schedule your consultation with Song Plastic Surgery at Irvine, California today.
