Breast Surgery Recovery

Fortunately recovery from breast augmentation is usually a quick process that won’t majorly affect your daily life.  Since breast augmentation surgery is an out-patient procedure, you will be able to go home within a few hours of your surgery. Most of our Kansas City patients spend less than an hour in the recovery room post-surgery. In the recovery room, you will be monitored closely.

Typical breast augmentation recovery lasts for a few days. For the first 24 to 48 hours, you will need to focus on resting and healing. After that time, reduced activity is recommended for a at least a few weeks.

After augmentation surgery, your breasts will  be wrapped in gauze dressings and either an elastic bandage or support bra will be used to support the breasts and minimize your swelling. Dr. Rast will give you instructions on how to care for your breasts and your incisions. You must follow these directions to promote healing and reduce your infection risks. It is very important to clean and apply medicine to the incisions sites to aid healing. If you have any questions about your medicine or proper care, please call Dr. Rast at (913)451-3722 or contact us online.

After the surgery, it is usual for patients to experience pain, soreness, and swelling for a few weeks. Reduced activity is recommended so that you don’t aggravate your incision sites and slow healing. You will have follow-up appointments with Dr. Rast, and he will let you know when you can resume exercise and more strenuous activity.
