Will I experience swelling after breast augmentation surgery?

By News No Comments

Breast augmentation is an operation that can give women the breast size and shape they desire and improve confidence in their appearance.

Most breast augmentation surgery is performed as day surgery and you will instantly see your result. As with any plastic surgery, you should expect a recovery period to help recuperate from your operation.  Once you are through that recovery period life goes back to normal.

What can you expect after breast augmentation surgery?

At Southern Aesthetics we provide a detailed comfort plan to ensure that your recovery is as pain free as possible. Breast augmentation surgery is a significant procedure, if you are unable to organise someone to take you home and care for you on the first day, then it may be best to spend one night in hospital to assist with recovery. Most people that have breast implant surgery can drive, return to work, and gently start exercising after one week, and get back to full exercise after six weeks.

Patients should understand that swelling is a normal response to any kind of surgery, and the duration of swelling after breast augmentation surgery is usually up to three months.  It is important to remember that the joy and benefits of the procedure outweigh the time needed to recover.

What to look out for?

Breast augmentation surgery provides instant improvements in your appearance resulting in a higher self-esteemand a satisfying result. At Southern Aesthetic Plastic Surgery we use only TGA approved, high quality breast implants and meticulous surgical technique. It is important to know that problems such as infection, malposition, capsular contracture and implant leaks can still occur. These issues can vary from minor to significant enough to require further surgery or even replacement or removal of your implants. Breast implants, like any implant in the body (such as joint replacements or pacemakers), will require revisional surgery to maintain the result. If problems with your implants occur, contact your plastic surgeon so they can determine the best course of action to correct the issue.

At Southern Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, our surgeons will listen to your concerns and goals when determining whether breast augmentation surgery is the best course of action. Dr Amira Sanki and Dr Ilias Kotronakis both have extensive experience and highest training in breast augmentation surgery Sydney can offer. They are committed to giving their patients the safest and best treatment available.

Does plastic surgery hurt?

Two of the main concerns patients have when considering plastic surgery are the duration of their recovery time and pain management. At Southern Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, our utmost priority is to ensure our patients feel comfortable during and following their procedure to help them get back to their normal life as soon as possible. Every patient obtains a detailed comfort plan designed by their anaesthetist to ensure their recovery is as pain free as possible. All of our patients receive close follow up with phone calls and post-operative consultations with their surgeon to ensure that their recovery is on track.

When undergoing any plastic surgery procedure, local anaesthetic is placed into the wound area to provide comfort that lasts for up to the first 24 hours. For people having procedures that are longer than 3 hours, a patient controlled analgesia system is also organised so that you can self-administer your pain relief instantly. Once at home, patients are prescribed  a combination of slow release and immediate pain relief. A good level of pain relief allows you to be more active and sleep well. A thorough comfort plan helps you to get back to normal activity and feel like yourself again.

Each body is different and recovers at its own pace. Our surgeons will listen carefully to your personal experiences with past procedures and take the utmost care to ensure you are comfortable and reassured while you recover. At Southern Aesthetic Plastic Surgery we always schedule regular check-ups after surgery to monitor your progress.

Patients should not put up with significant pain, it is important to use any painkillers prescribed after the operation to assist with pain relief. Over the counter medications that can also help relieve pain are regular paracetamol and anti-inflammatories.

After undergoing any surgery, we recommend taking time off to fully rest while your body and immune system recuperates. It is vital to avoid strenuous exercise after surgery for six weeks, as this can slow down recovery time and put you at risk of health complications.

It is important to carefully consider your choice of surgeon, you should opt for the plastic surgeon the Shire local’s trust. At Southern Aesthetic Plastic Surgery we establish plans tailored to your preferences and body type so that you can enjoy a speedy and restful recovery.
