What to expect after breast augmentation with lift surgery
After your procedure, you will be able to go home the same day with a friend or family member, who will ideally be able to help care for you. You will have a compression bandage around your chest to support your breasts, limit post-surgical swelling and protect your new breast shape.
Within the first week after your procedure, do not lift anything over five pounds. Do not lift your arms above your shoulders or exert yourself. You will begin to be able to get around more easily by the second week and be able to return to many of your usual daily activities. After about a month, Dr. Pratt will check in with you to give you clearance to exercise or do other more rigorous activities.
As your body continues to heal over the coming weeks and months, the swelling will subside and the implants will settle into their final position.
