For most people, the decision to have elective surgery is based on considering the risks versus the benefits. If you want to make an informed decision about whether or not to have breast augmentation, you should consider whether the long recovery is worth the results.
How long is the recovery from breast implant surgery?
The full recovery time for breast augmentation procedures varies greatly from one person to the next, but the average recovery time is about six weeks. You’ll be able to return to activities slowly throughout the recovery period, but you won’t be fully recovered until about six weeks after your surgery.
How much help will I actually need during recovery?
You’ll be able to reintroduce activities as your body heals. But you will need some help at first. How long you’ll need that assistance or what assistance you’ll need is based on each individual. Everyone should take the first few days to simply heal, getting help with household chores, food preparation, and other needs.
After the first week, your recovery will largely be specific to you. Your surgeon will give you specific recovery instructions that you should follow as closely as possible. Your doctor or someone from their office will check in with you on a regular basis throughout your recovery so that your treatment plan can be adjusted based on your progress.
