If you have interest in getting a breast augmentation but don’t know what to expect after the surgery is complete, it’s important to have a general understanding at the very least. Keep in mind that experienced board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brian Eichenberg will guide you through the entire post-operative breast recovery process every step of the way.
During breast recovery, expect to take some time off from work. Though the exact amount varies, taking a week off is generally the rule of thumb. If you have a very active job, such as personal trainer, you’ll need more time off (two to three weeks).
Your breast recovery will also vary according to the type of incision and technique your surgeon uses. But you play a big part in the process; follow all of the post-surgery instructions carefully for the best possible results.
