How Does Breast Enlargement Surgery Take Place?
Breast enlargement surgery is usually carried out using a general anesthetic. It involves three main steps:
- Making an incision (the incision’s position can vary depending on your breasts and the purpose of your surgery)
- Positioning the implant
- Stitching up the incision and covering it with gauze or dressing
The entire procedure generally takes between 60 and 90 minutes, so it is likely that you will be home on the same day.
What Would Recovery Look Like?
As mentioned above, you can expect to be home after the surgery is completed. Breast enlargement does not generally entail an overnight hospital stay. While you may have the ability to move around a few hours after the surgery, complete recovery usually takes a few weeks. It is recommended that you should not drive for one week after the surgery.
Consult with your surgeon about the type of bra you should wear after the surgery. Most surgeons recommend wearing a sports bra 24/7 for up to 3 months after the surgery. It is also recommended to avoid lifting heavy weights.
Your stitches are likely to be removed 1 or 2 weeks after the surgery. After six weeks, your scars should begin to fade, and you should be able to return to your normal routine. Your breasts will start to feel more natural after a few months, and you will get used to the implants.…
