During the recovery period after breast implant surgery, you can expect some discomfort, swelling, and bruising in the breast area. Pain medication may be prescribed to help manage any discomfort. You may also be required to wear a compression garment or supportive bra to help minimize swelling and support the breasts during the healing process. Strenuous activities and heavy lifting should be avoided for several weeks to allow the body to heal. You may need to take time off work or limit your physical activity during this time. Your surgeon will give you specific instructions on post-operative care, including how to clean and care for the incision sites. It’s important to follow all post-operative instructions carefully to ensure a smooth and safe recovery.
