How Long is Recovery From Breast Augmentation?

There’s no denying that breasts are an important part of your body as a woman. If you’re displeased with them because you don’t like their shape or size, there is a solution. Breast augmentation can restore the lost breast volume you may have lost after pregnancy, breastfeeding, and extreme weight loss. Let’s dive deeper into what breast augmentation is and what you can expect from the recovery process.

What is Breast Augmentation?

Dr. Gonyon is pleased to offer a variety of implant options to meet your unique goals. During the procedure, he will insert your implants through the crease below your breast fold.  

Once Dr. Gonyon places your implants, he’ll use sutures to close the incisions and apply steri strips over the incisions so they can heal. He will administer general anesthesia and complete the procedure in about an hour.

Recovering From Breast Augmentation

After breast augmentation surgery, you can expect to feel a bit sore and tired for a few days. You’ll likely be able to return to your daily routine in a few days as long as you refrain from vigorous physical activity.

If you work a desk job, you can expect to return to work about a week after the surgery. A few days after the procedure, Dr. Gonyon will remove the steri strips. You’ll likely be asked to wear a surgical bra to prevent the breasts from moving and allow them to recover optimally.

Good Candidates for Breast Augmentation

There are a number of women that may benefit from breast augmentation surgery. If you wish to alter your breast size or shape, resolve breast asymmetry, or reconstruct your breasts after mastectomy, you may benefit from this procedure. Dr. Gonyon recommends this procedure to women who are bothered by their small breasts and those who hope to add volume in their breasts. A private consultation with Dr. Gonyon is a good way for you to determine if you’re a good fit for this procedure.
