Breast Augmentation Recovery

Breast Augmentations often referred to as boob jobs, is a common procedure with a manageable recovery time. At Galardi-Galardi | Bowen Plastic Surgery in Virginia Beach, breast augmentations are one of our most popular requests!

Our plastic surgeons are experienced in the nuances of breast augmentation and other breast procedures, all performed in our Virginia Beach operating suite, accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities.

Breast Augmentation recovery begins once your procedure is complete. You’ll be gently bandaged and monitored for a short period while we explain in-depth your post-surgical care routine, and any specific steps you’ll need to take while healing.

Every surgery is different, just as every patient is different. We’ll walk you through all steps of breast augmentation aftercare, including instructions for cleaning the affected area, changing bandages, and wearing your support garment, or compression bra. We’ll discuss your activity level and when you can safely return to work ahead of time but are always happy to answer any additional questions you may have about your breast augmentation recovery in Virginia Beach.

Pain associated with breast augmentation procedures is typically mild, but your surgeon may prescribe you some medication to alleviate your discomfort. Although there is likely to be some swelling for at least a month after your breast augmentation, most women are able to return to work – as long as it’s not strenuous – within a week, often even less.

Bruising and swelling are common after breast augmentation, and will gradually decrease over the next few weeks. During this time you’ll find yourself coming to terms with the New You. It may feel strange initially to look in the mirror and see a different silhouette, but this is a normal part of the recovery process. Give yourself and your body time to heal and adjust.
