How to Sleep After Breast Augmentation

At Pure Plastic Surgery, we provide breast augmentation treatment for any woman who wants to increase the size of her breasts and achieve greater symmetry. From aging to a flat bust, there are many reasons why patients opt for this treatment. Should you have breast augmentation surgery, you need to follow the aftercare advice provided to you, which includes the correct sleeping position to adopt. 

BREAST AUGMENTATION OVERVIEW

Breast augmentation is a type of surgery that is used to increase a person’s breast size. This is achieved by breast implants being placed under the chest muscles or breast tissue. For some women, breast augmentation is sought after because they want to rebuild the breast after suffering from a medical condition. For others, this treatment enables them to feel more confident, which then floods into other areas of their life, ensuring better life quality and satisfaction. 

BEST SLEEPING POSITION FOR BREAST AUGMENTATION RECOVERY

An important part of breast augmentation recovery is making sure that you adopt the correct sleeping position. The best position for safe sleeping once you have had this treatment is to lie on your back and slightly elevate your upper body. You can achieve this by using a stack of pillows or sleeping in a recliner. This position is recommended because it can help to reduce any soreness or swelling that you may be experiencing after your treatment. 

RECOVERY FROM BREAST AUGMENTATION

One thing you will want to know if you are considering breast augmentation is what the recovery process looks like. It is vital to note that, as every person’s body is unique, the recovery timeline can differ from person-to-person. Nevertheless, in most cases, recovery will take around the six-week mark. A lot of females notice that they feel fine after a week. However it will take 3 months for the implants to fully settle. 

Once you wake up from the anesthesia, you are probably going to feel a bit sore and groggy. This should wear off after a few hours. Nevertheless, you will need to have someone else drive you home. 

You can expect to feel a bit uncomfortable during the first three to five days after your treatment. Pain medication will likely be prescribed to you. Over-the-counter painkillers should be more than enough after this, and most women are able to return to desk jobs a week after the surgery. If you have a manual job, you will need to book further time off work.

AM I A CANDIDATE FOR BREAST AUGMENTATION?

Finally, you will want to know if you are a good candidate for breast augmentation. An ideal candidate for breast augmentation is someone who is in general good health and has realistic expectations. This is something that we will discuss with you during your consultation. 

Breast augmentation is not recommended for you if you have breast cancer or an abnormal mammogram. It is also not suitable for women who are breastfeeding or pregnant.
