Breast implant surgery has continued to rise in popularity over the years. Not only does the procedure yield high patient satisfaction rates, but with modern surgical techniques and cutting-edge breast implant technology, giving your girls the ultimate makeover has never been easier.
Before you start daydreaming about rocking your polka dot bikini or how fabulous you’ll look in your birthday suit, first things first: you need to recover.
On the day of your procedure, you’ll need a friend or family member to be your personal chauffeur for the day, transporting you to and from the surgical center. Once at home, you’ll need someone available to assist you during your first couple of post-op days.
As with any surgery, you need to exercise caution and care while you’re healing, which may entail having someone grab you a book off the shelf or cook you some tasty meals while you’re recovering.
Having someone by your side just in case you fall or need help is essential. Trust me, you’ll thank us later.
Plus, who doesn’t love a little comfort and pampering? If you have children or pets, you may want to consider making arrangements in advance for someone to care for them while your healing.
One of the tricks to making the healing process a seamless one is to create a relaxing environment for yourself. Think of it as your personal oasis, where you’ll be comfortable, able to relax, and set up for a few days of binge-watching glory while you recover.
On the day before your breast augmentation surgery, get everything situated by ensuring things like water, pillows, healthy snacks, books or magazines, and electronics are easily accessible.
While you may feel ready to return to your desk after a couple of days, you should commit to spending one week away from your cubicle to truly give your body the proper time to heal.
If you have a labor-intensive job that calls for boatloads of physical exertion, don’t kid yourself, plan on taking off more than a week. The key? Listen to your body and don’t push yourself before you’re ready. The goal is to score a killer new pair of boobs, right? So, why would you risk ruining your results by overdoing it?
It’s hard to deny: procrastination an easy trap to fall into. But when it comes to your breast implant procedure, you want to get everything situated ahead of time.
Make sure to fill all necessary prescriptions ahead of your surgery, get your grocery shopping done, and buy anything you need, such as surgical bras, before the big day. By eliminating any stress-inducing activities from your agenda before your surgery, it’ll help you jumpstart a successful healing process.
Don’t carelessly toss your post-op instructions to the side – they were put together with your best interest in mind. There’s no getting around this one; you need to diligently follow all instructions carefully.
Why? Because it’ll vastly improve your recovery. Instructions typically cover important items like how to care for your incisions, when to take your pain medication, proper bathing, and more.
While the recovery process is unique for each patient, if you follow your plastic surgeon’s advice and give yourself the space to heal, you’ll be left with the swoon-worthy results you’ve been craving.
