Many people overlook how critical the breast enlargement recovery 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. When you follow care directions, you can have an efficient and speedy recovery.
The breast enlargement recovery 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.
