How to Reduce Pain After a Breast Augmentation

Board-Certified plastic surgeon Dr. K. Roxanne Grawe of ROXY Plastic Surgery in Columbus Ohio offers tips on how to minimize pain after a breast augmentation.

I recently answered a question on RealSelf on how to deal with pain after surgery. When it comes to dealing with pain after a breast augmentation, your recovery time will depend on your implant size. For example, patients who choose larger breast implants have a longer recovery than patients who choose smaller ones.

At ROXY Plastic Surgery we try to minimize recovery pain as much as possible by providing all of our patients with a detailed recovery checklist.

Here are a few tips that can help with pain after having breast implants:

1. Ice: Purchase a large bag of frozen peas from the grocery store and put them in smaller snack ziplock bags for easy use. The bags will mold to your breasts and you can slip them in your sports bra. They’ll defrost before they can freeze burn your skin (like ice can) and then you can exchange them out.

2. Keep inflammation down: Invest in a sports bra that provides good support to help with swelling which will decrease pain. I also give my patients anti-inflammatory medication to decrease swelling and pain.

3. Relax a little:  Don’t try to do too much or you get exhausted and that makes it harder to mentally deal with the pain. This leads to you feeling MORE pain.

4. Muscle relaxers:  If you are still in pain, talk to your doctor about using a muscle relaxer – sometimes it’s the muscle spasms that keep you up at night.

  3. I appreciate the tip about getting frozen peas for your breasts after the procedure. My sister is thinking of getting breast augmentation but she doesn’t handle pain well, and she’s worried that it will be bad. Maybe I should get some frozen peas for her to help reduce the discomfort after the surgery.
