The results of Breast Augmentation are immediate, providing fullness, shape, symmetry and improved position to the breasts whilst retaining a soft and natural feel. The results will improve over time as the swelling reduces.
The surgical dressing is removed after the first day and thereafter patients are asked to wear a surgical bra, day and night, for 4 weeks. If external stitches are used, they are removed after 10 – 14 days. Discomfort is effectively controlled with medication prescribed by the surgeon. The breasts are usually swollen for a few weeks, but this begins to decrease gradually. The patient can return to work 7 days after the operation, but should avoid lifting their arms above the head or sudden movements for the first 4 weeks.
