Many people overlook how critical the breast augmentation healing process is. The same is also true for post-operative care in general. Despite perceptions, recovery is the one aspect of surgery where you, the patient, are in the driver’s seat and can influence an efficient and speedy recovery.
The breast augmentation healing process starts upon completion of the procedure. A special strap will likely be given to take home. This strap helps to push the swollen breasts down and combat their tendency to sit high on the chest. This can be worn in conjunction with a supportive surgical bra. The bra should be worn whenever possible within the first month. Patients are advised to wait at least one day before taking a shower.
