Having a breast augmentation isn’t the last step of the plastic surgery experience. Once the procedure is completed, your plastic surgeon should give you after-care instructions, as well as tips to make the recovery process a more comfortable one. At Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery, Dr. Ali Mosharrafa and Dr. Tamir Mosharrafa ensure that every patient is adequately informed on the risks after surgery and what patients should and should not do for the best results after surgery.
Located in Phoenix, Arizona, Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery is the leading aesthetic, reconstructive, and skin care plastic surgery center in the southwest United States. Breast augmentation surgery is designed to give patients a more symmetrical and personally appealing look, and guaranteeing flawless results requires our surgeons to give proper recovery instructions.
If you have underwent a breast augmentation or are considering one, these instructions entail what you should be able to do after the procedure:
- Eat any food normally
- Drink alcoholic beverages can resume after you have stopped taking required pain medications
- Sleep on your back, not on your side
- Lift nothing more than 5 pounds during the first 2 weeks after breast augmentation
- Lift your arms no higher than your shoulder level during the first 2 weeks
For as many things that can resume after breast augmentation, please consider these instructions for what not to do after breast augmentation:
- No sleeping on your side or stomach for up to 6 weeks
- No running, jumping, or any vigorous physical activity
- Do not try to lift your breast or touch your scars
- Do not get your wounds wet for up to 5 days after breast augmentation surgery
These instructions are general guidelines for the dos and don’ts of recovering from plastic surgery. Some patients require a more disciplined recovery plan. Other patients will heal faster, while others will heal at a slow rate. Dr. Tamir and Ali Mosharrafa use thorough examination techniques to give patients the proper tools, tips, and advise on how to best care for new breasts after augmentation.
