In the first week, your breasts will feel sore, and you will experience some bruising and swelling. A specialty support bra should be worn throughout your recovery.
Over the next three weeks, you will slowly introduce new levels of physical activity into your daily routine. By the fourth week, you should be back to most regular exercise routines.
After six weeks, most major swelling should have subsided, and your implants will begin to settle into their final position.
The extent of your scarring varies depending on the incision technique used for your surgery.
Genetic factors can affect the severity of your scars, including size and darkness.
Your surgeon will perform scar-sparing techniques when possible, and most major scarring will fade over time.
The cost of breast augmentation surgery varies between patients and is dependent on a number of factors, such as:
- Implant type
- Anesthesia fees
- Facility fees
- Extent of correction
You may feel some initial tightness in the chest, which should subside within the first week.
Discomfort is typically controlled by pain medication that has been prescribed by your surgeon.
