Tips for a Successful Breast Augmentation Recovery

Breast augmentation performed by Scottsdale plastic surgeon Dr. Shaun Parson is an exciting procedure for many women. They finally get to have the full, voluptuous bustline they’ve always wanted. However, as with any surgery, breast augmentation does require a recovery period. It’s imperative that you take the time to recover so you can enjoy your augmentation results for years to come. Here are a few tips to ensure your recovery is safe and comfortable.

Ask For Help In Preparation For Your Breast Augmentation

Following your breast augmentation procedure, you’ll need someone to drive you home. You’ll also most likely need an extra hand once you return home as your mobility will be limited. For the first couple of days, it’s encouraged that you have someone to prepare meals, help with chores around the house and, most importantly, help care for children or any pets that you might have.

Request Time Off From Work

You will need to rest after your breast implants procedure, so you’ll need to take some time off from work. It’s recommended that you request at least a week off. You may feel like you’re ready to return a few days following surgery, especially if you just had a breast lift, but you don’t want to push it. Depending on the type of work that you do and if it requires physical assertion, you may need to take extra time off.

Plan Ahead

Before your procedure, you’ll want to make sure you have your prescriptions filled. This will help control any possible discomfort immediately after your breast augmentation. You’ll also want to make sure you have prepared a place at your home that is comfortable and relaxing. The goal is to make your recovery go as smoothly as possible and the less you have to do after your breast augmentation procedure the easier your recovery will be.

Follow Post-Op Instructions

The most important thing you can do after your breast augmentation is following Dr. Parson’s directions. Dr. Parson will send you home with post-op directions that you’ll need to abide by to ensure you heal safely and adequately. He will instruct you on what you can and cannot do and give you advice on how to do tasks such as bathe and care for your incisions.
