To achieve optimal results, patients should prioritise a smooth recovery, post surgery. Sufficient aftercare will enable your implants to drop and heal with minimal time away from your daily routine. That’s why we’ve devised a list of BA aftercare tips & tricks.
The Cosmetic Institute does not recommend partaking in strenuous activities for at least 6 weeks after surgery. Patients may need to take time off work in order to rest and recover.
Diet & Nutrition
Whilst your diet won’t directly influence your breast enhancement, a balanced intake of vitamins and nutrients will help your body heal. We strongly advise against consumption of alcohol whilst taking pain medication.
Sleep on your back
During the first 6 weeks of rest, your breasts will feel tender and sensitive to pain. We suggest sleeping on your back instead of your side. This will place less pressure on your breasts and encourage a smooth recovery.
Wear your post-operative bra
The post-operative bra should be worn day and night for a minimum of 6 weeks after surgery. The bra is designed to give your breasts and back the support it needs in order to heal and form a natural shape.
