Recovery Time for Breast Augmentation

Plastic Surgeon Serving Indianapolis, Indiana


Traditional breast augmentation recovery required one week of complete rest. This was one week where women would not be able to work, play with their children, or engage in any physical activity. This recovery time was inconvenient, and caused some women to think twice about receiving this procedure.

At Renaissance Plastic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Fata offers the “24 Hour Breast Augmentation Recovery Program,” a revolutionary advancement in breast augmentation that can have you back to normal activities in two short days.

24 Hour Recovery

Dr. Fata provides a comfortable bra and muscle relaxers before and after breast augmentation. In addition, you will be instructed in range of motion exercises to stretch and soften the muscles around your breasts. This greatly reduces swelling and discomfort. In fact, Dr. Fata has found this method sufficient to eliminate the need for prescription pain relievers for 90% of his patients.

Many patients find they are able to resume normal activities like shopping and taking walks within hours of their surgery, but still choose to take one to two days off from work. You will want to avoid strenuous exercise and heavy lifting for two weeks as well.

During your recovery time, some mild discomfort and swelling can be expected. Pain can be handled with over-the-counter analgesics and the use of the comfort bra will help to reduce swelling. If you experience moderate to severe pain, Dr. Fata can give you a prescription for stronger pain relievers.
