Average Recovery Time for Breast Augmentation

While every patient is different, most women can expect to devote about four weeks to their breast augmentation recovery. That doesn’t mean you’ll be down and out for the entire four weeks; in fact, most patients are able to return to work after a few days of downtime.

What to Expect from Your Breast Augmentation Recovery

The most intensive recovery period is usually during the first few days, when patients are most apt to experience discomfort as they heal. In some cases there may be a drainage tube which is generally removed after the first few days.

Patients are allowed to return to work after the first few days.  There will be restrictions to straining and high impact activities.  These restrictions will be discussed before surgery so that you may plan ahead.

Most patients may resume full activities in 4-6 weeks.instructions will be reviewed throughout the postoperative period. 

By week six, most patients are fully recovered and excited about their breast augmentation results!

I am so blessed to have found Dr Keusch. From the bottom of my heart I thank her and her entire staff for listening, caring, and producing such wonderful results . I had a breast  augmentation, am 44 years old, and had nursed four babies… It’s like a total miracle. After the surgery I only took Tylenol the first week, that’s it. My neck and upper back discomfort have finally taken a hike and I feel I can truly take a deep breath now, truly. Simply because of how I look AND because of how I feel. Symmetrical, perky, and natural. Dr. Keusch and her warm, caring, nurturing presence along with her ability to craft and create such precision. . . Is most appreciated by me. She is a craftswoman, the only surgeon I know after visiting 4 others that completely eliminates the need for the horizontal scar on the bottom, and creates a perfect round (not boxy) shaped breast. Bravo!! I have a new lease on life and encourage you to do the same !
