Ideal candidates should have realistic expectations for their procedure. They should be a non-smoker in good health with no history of high blood pressure, bleeding disorders, or medical conditions that would put them at risk during surgery. Their weight should be stable. The patient should have a good understanding of the recovery process.
The average recovery time for breast augmentation surgery is six weeks, during which heavy lifting and strenuous activity are not advised. Some pain, tenderness, and swelling are common for two to three weeks around the incisions. A bra must be worn at all times for support. Most patients should plan to take at least a week off from work to rest and heal at home.
Breast augmentation is a highly personal procedure. If you have considered having breast augmentation surgery, Dr. Cristina Keusch is happy to answer your questions and walk you through the process. Contact our office today to schedule a consultation.
