Following the placement of your implants, your surgeon will sew the incision sites and close them with stitches. Also, a gauze bandage will be placed on your breasts, and you may need to wear a special bra following the surgery.

Full recovery can take a few weeks, but you should be able to walk and move around quickly after the surgery. Some doctors advocate wearing a sports bra 24 hours a day. Of course, you need to avoid lifting heavy weights and intense activity for at least a month. Nonetheless, here is a quick review of the recovery phase after breast augmentation:

  • 2After 6-7 weeks: Your scars will start to fade away and you certainly can resume most of your routine daily activities.
  • 3After 3 months: You might be able to use normal bras and your breasts should start to look and feel more natural. Remember, breast implants are not sensitive to sunbaths and flying, so you can start enjoying your time comfortably!

One or both breasts did not grow properly or have an abnormal shape.
