Care After Plastic Surgery

Continued care after plastic surgery is extremely important to the proper healing and setting of any plastic surgery procedure. Kansas City plastic surgeon, Dr. Jon E. Rast, recommends listening completely to your doctor and following all of their directions as necessary.

Post-Op Care After Plastic Surgery

The first step, is to make sure you understand your doctor’s instructions. If you aren’t sure what to do, make sure you call them, or contact us with specific questions. Healing time is different for every patient, but you can follow these more general basic directions:

care after plastic surgery

  • Avoid Heavy Lifting with certain procedures, especially breast augmentation, as lifting can cause issues with incision sites and muscle healing.
  • Depending on the type of surgery, you may restrict movement for the first 3 to 5 days post surgery.
  • Monitor your temperature for fever. If you have a high fever, call your doctor. While a low fever is common after surgery, a very high fever could be indicative of other problems.
  • Showers are recommended 2 to 3 days after most surgery procedures. When washing, gently wash the area with mild soap (like Dove) and gently pat dry, do not rub. Rubbing could cause irritation. For the first two weeks, do not submerge yourself in water, such as a bath or swimming pool.
  • While exercise is not recommended for the first three weeks after surgery, normal activity can start again three days after surgery. Moving around and walking multiple times a day, beginning the day you get home from surgery, can minimize the risk of blood clots.

Swelling Care After Plastic Surgery

Swelling is a natural process after plastic surgery. Swelling should subside in about 3 months after surgery and the body contours will begin to look more natural. A regular regimen of ibuprofen will help reduce the swelling before the body is completely healed. Pain medications unfortunately do not help with swelling as much as normal ibuprofen.

Breast augmentation can:

  • Enhance or enlarge breasts one or more cup sizes.
  • Reshape breasts, creating a natural and attractive looking bust
  • Counteract breast volume reduction post-pregnancy or weight loss
  • Balance a difference in breast sizes

Common Types of Breast Implants

Saline Breast Implants

Saline implants provide a very uniform shape and feel and are filled with sterile salt water, making them extremely safe if the implant breaks. The implant will collapse inside the body and the saline absorbed naturally. Implants are inserted, then filled with saline after insertion. Saline breast implants are FDA-approved for augmentation in women age 18+.

Silicone Breast Implants

Silicone implants are filled with silicone gel, which most women agree feel much more similar to natural breast tissue than the saline option. Silicone implants are also FDA approved for women aged 22+.

Learn more about the differences between Saline and Silicone from the Mayo Clinic.

Breast Augmentation Incision Areas

There are three possible incision sites for most breast augmentation procedures. These incision sites are be chosen based on risk, overall patient health, and personal choice.

Periareolar – This incision is around the nipple, which is the most concealed place for the incision. While it is the most concealed, it does have more risks related to future breastfeeding, breast changes, and sensation in the nipples.

Inframmary – This option is within the breast fold and is the most common option because there are fewer risks, although it is more visible that the periareolar option.

Axillary – This under the arm incision is also common because it carries fewer risks to breastfeeding and nipple sensation, but it is the most visible incision area.

Next Steps

If you have questions about the breast augmentation basics, or would like to schedule a consultation with Dr. Rast, contact us online or call (913) 451-3722.
