When Can I Sleep on My Side After Breast Augmentation in Miami?

When you consider breast augmentation, you probably also think about the recovery time. Many people ask how long they will need to take off work, how long they will need help lifting things, and other recovery questions. After a few nights of sleeping in an unfamiliar position, you may start asking when you can sleep on your side again. 

How Does Breast Augmentation Work?

To perform breast augmentation, Dr. Earle or Dr. Vidal will make a small incision and insert an implant. During your first consultation, you will discuss your goals and want your breasts to look and feel. Your surgeon will recommend an implant choice based on the results you desire. Implants types include:

  • Saline
  • Silicone
  • “Gummy Bear” silicone gel

Each implant type has a different appearance and feel. Many people feel that silicone implants give a more natural look, while saline implants give you a firmer, more lifted look. Both types of implants come in various shapes and sizes to meet your needs. 

When Can I Sleep on My Side After Miami Breast Augmentation?

The weeks following your surgery are vital to the success of your healing. Dr. Earle or Dr. Vidal will advise you on how to care for yourself and will monitor you through follow-up visits. 

The average recovery takes about six weeks, and you should sleep on your back during this time. Sleeping on your back prevents strain or pressure on your healing breasts. While you might find sleeping on your back for six weeks uncomfortable, you can imagine the many years of beautiful breasts that await you after your recovery. 


There’s a time in your life where you need a boost, a fresh start, and a way to take control of things. We all have features about ourselves we want to change on the outside and it can affect us on the inside.

Pure’s goal is to give people a chance to make smart choices that lead to the results that will empower and inspire them to reach their dreams. Pure is led by Dr. S. Alexander Earle, who performs a wide range of procedures with an incredibly high rate of customer satisfaction.

Do I Need a Breast Lift?

If your breasts have started to sag and you have significant loose skin, you may need a breast lift in Miami to get the best results from your augmentation. Breast implants can lift breasts that have lost volume, but only a breast lift can correct excess skin. Your surgeon can perform both procedures at the same time. 

What Results Will I See With Breast Augmentation in Miami?

You will see fuller, symmetrical breasts with the size and shape that match your body and your goals. Swelling will prevent you from seeing your results for a few weeks. Some residual swelling can last for several months as your breasts settle into their new position. 

How Long Does Miami Breast Augmentation Last?

Your breast augmentation results should look good for many years to come. Most implants can last ten to fifteen years. Not everyone keeps their implants that long. You might want to try a newer implant or a different size. Complications such as rippling or hardening of the implant may occur, but new implants will correct these issues. 

Why Choose Dr. Earle and Dr. Vidal?

Dr. Earle and Dr. Vidal have many years of combined experience performing breast augmentations. Dr. Earle researches all implants before considering them for use. His research led him to reject textured implants, which were later removed from the market. You can expect the best results at Pure Plastic Surgery Miami.
