After breast augmentation, patients enjoying their new shape and improved self confidence are understandably excited to return to their normal activities. Wearing a skimpy new bikini, resuming aerobic activities and spending a night out dancing with friends await and in today’s fast-paced world a prolonged recovery period shouldn’t infringe on your lifestyle.

Pre-Operative Education & Comfort
Setting the stage for a quick and easy recovery begins with your first appointment. We believe an informed patient experiences minimal pre-operative anxiety, and provide a range of educational materials to help our patients learn what to expect at every step of the way. During consultations, patients will have the opportunity to view real before and after photos, allowing them to form realistic expectations of what they can expect post-surgery. To lessen bruising, patients are advised to avoid blood thinners in the days leading up to their operation.
Breast Augmentation Recovery: What To Expect
After a thorough evaluation, Dr. Chhatre will decide if there are any reasons your operation should be performed off-site, but nearly all of our patients are able to undergo surgery in the comfort of our surgical suite. Since patients do experience tenderness immediately following the procedure, a soft cotton post-surgical bra will be provided.
During a follow up appointment scheduled one to three days post breast augmentation, you will have a personal appointment with Dr. Chhatre to check on your healing and answer any concerns you might have. Most patients feel comfortable returning to normal activities five to seven days after surgery, shortly afterwards easing back into exercising.
After swelling and tenderness has completely resolved, around three weeks at the most, patients will be directed to perform a special massage to help settle the implants and encourage relaxation of the surrounding muscles. Around this time, implants will drop to their normal placement, and look even better in the upcoming months as the body adjusts to your new shape.
