If you’re interested in getting a breast augmentation but don’t know what to expect in the days following the surgery, it’s vital to have a general understanding of breast augmentation recovery and the procedure in general. Keep in mind that experienced, board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Hustak and Dr. Wentworth will guide you through every step of the post-operative recovery process.

During breast augmentation recovery, expect to take some time off from work. Though the exact amount changes from person to person, taking at least one week off is generally the rule of thumb. If you have a highly active job (such as personal trainer), you’ll need more time off (two to three weeks).

Your breast augmentation recovery will also vary according to the type of incision and technique your surgeon uses. Remember that you play a big role in the process; follow all of the post-surgery instructions carefully for the best possible results.
