Did you know that there are an estimated 3 million women who have breast implants in the United States alone? Many women consider getting breast surgery for a variety of reasons. This is a big life-changing decision for women who want to feel more confident in themselves.
Are you considering getting a breast augmentation but you aren’t sure if you want to put up with the recovery? There are options that prevent you from having to wait months until you heal. Keep reading for everything you need to know about the surgery and the 24-hour recovery.
What Is The 24-hour Breast Augmentation?
The 24-hour breast surgery is a technique that is developed to offer minimal recovery time and low pain levels. The procedure involves no bleeding, minimal tissue damage, and is very gentle which allows the patient to be up and moving the very next day. This is a great option for people looking to get the benefits from breast implants but who might not have the time for recovery after surgery.
This surgery will not only rejuvenate your breasts, but also the entire look of your torso, which will allow you to feel comfortable wearing the clothes you want and feel confident in doing so.
Following surgery, you can get back to your normal routines. You can lie down, take a shower, and even go out to eat. In fact, it’s recommended that patients perform arm exercises in a “jumping jack fashion” five times every hour.
While you should be up and moving right after your procedure, heavy exercising and cardio should be avoided initially. Fitness should be avoided for about two weeks to ensure that you are properly healed. This is much faster than the healing process for regular breast enlargements and is one of the biggest benefits of this surgery.
Avoid Lifting Heavy Items
For at least three weeks after your breast augmentation, you should avoid lifting above 35 pounds. This is to ensure that you avoid the risk of moving the implants or causing damage. You’ll want to make sure that your body heals properly.
Swimming positions could overexert your chest muscles and put a strain on your surgery which could lead to complications. This is why it is advised to not swim or soak in water for up to six weeks after your procedure.
How Much Pain Is There?
The majority of the time, patients use ibuprofen for pain management following their surgery. Patients have said that the discomfort felt can compare to the sensation of having breast milk come in after birth. For those who don’t know what this feels like, it can be like pressure or swelling within the breasts.
Each patient is different and the recovery process will vary from person to person. Typically, there is no pain, no drainage or dressings, and no bruising. In fact, there are even links that show this type of surgery comes with fewer instances of operative problems like capsular contracture or shifting of the implant.
Give Surgery Time
You are going to immediately fall in love with your new results after your breast augmentation, but expect them to change after your surgery. It will take your breasts a full three months before they set in your chest naturally. The skin will stretch and the muscles will relax as the inflammation subsides.
This is why we recommend not going right out to buy new expensive bras. Your breasts will drop and you will be able to determine what cup size you are after those three months pass.
