Each patient is different, but many compare the pain and heaviness that results from breast augmentation surgery to that you feel when breast milk arrives after having a baby.
In most cases, you will be able to leave your operating site and return home the same day as your intervention, but it is preferable to call on a person who takes care of you during your recovery period. It is also wise to take easy steps at least for the first week.
Many plastic surgeons recommend massaging your breasts every day for the first six weeks after the operation to keep them flexible and reduce the risk of capsular contracture, but only if the implants are round.
Before you start massaging your breasts after surgery, ask your surgeon when to start and how to do it properly.
