How to look after your health post breast augmentation surgery

Following a breast augmentation surgery, it’s essential to take care of yourself during the recovery period. Most women feel a little bit tender after a cosmetic procedure, so always allow time to get back on your feet.

Here’s how to stay fit and well following a breast augmentation (please note everyone is different, so it’s important to speak to your doctor):

1.       Get enough rest

You’re sure to feel a little tired and cranky during the first 48 hours, so be sure to get enough rest. While many women are up and about pretty quickly, don’t leave your bed if you’re feeling at all unwell. Your surgeon will advise you what you can and can’t do and should check up on you often. Once you’re feeling better avoid strenuous exercise, including weight training for up to six weeks. Your scars need time to heal, so you don’t want to do anything that might extend your recovery period.

2.       Keep your dressing clean

When you wake up after surgery you’ll find that your breasts have been bandaged up for protection and support. This is nothing to worry about, but you will have to keep your dressings as clean and dry as possible. Fresh wounds are easily infected, so if you’ve got an itch or want to feel around the area – make sure you’ve got clean hands. Your surgeon should remove the bandages after a few days and your stitches should be removed at your follow-up appointment.

3.       Use ice packs

If your doctor agrees, use icepacks to reduce swelling and ease pain. A bag of peas will do or you could opt for those reusable gel packs available at beauty stores. Cold temperatures help to numb the painful area and will help minimise bruising. Always use as instructed and never do anything without your doctor’s advice.

4.       Protect scars from the sun

Breast implant surgery is a great way to enhance your chest, but you’ll have to be careful in the sun. Protect any scars from harmful rays and use a sun screen with a sun protection factor of at least 15. Complications are rare these days, but they’re still possible, so don’t put yourself at risk. Be aware that your breasts might lose sensitivity and might burn without you releasing.

5.       Avoid smoking

If you’re a smoker try to stay well clear of cigarettes during your recovery period. Inhaling smoke will reduce the oxygen levels in your blood and could hinder the healing process. If you can’t live without a puff or two, try to cut back as much as possible. You could put yourself at risk if you don’t make an effort to quit post-surgery.

A breast enlargement is a scary time in any woman’s life, but if you choose a reputable clinic and take good care of yourself you should be fine.
