Are you interested in breast augmentation surgery? Like any operation, this popular plastic surgery procedure requires extensive preparation and recovery time. Each individual who undergoes breast augmentation will have a unique experience, but a complete postoperative recovery usually lasts about four to six weeks. During recovery, patients can expect some pain and discomfort, which can become more mild and manageable within the first week. After three to four weeks, your plastic surgeon may suggest that you engage in light physical exercise before resuming your regular daily routine once you’re fully recovered. If you’re interested in scheduling a consultation for breast augmentation and want to learn more about what you can expect before or after surgery, contact Dr. J. J. Wendel Plastic Surgery today.
