Breast Augmentation RecoveryClinic 360
The better prepared you are to have a comfortable, restful recovery, the sooner you can expect results. While a breast augmentation is a surgical procedure, it is minimally invasive and usually done on an outpatient basis. As such, recovery is generally smooth, with minimal complications.
Breast Implant Recovery Time
Right After Surgery
First Week after the Surgery
Showering can normally be resumed the day after surgery, although baths should be avoided for at least six weeks following your breast augmentation procedure. Patients are advised to keep the surgical area clean and dry, and to apply any topical antibiotics prescribed, in order to minimize the risk of infection. Patients are advised to immediately report to their surgeon any sudden fever or foul discharge, as these may be signs of infection. The surgical area should remain covered with a medical gauze, and your surgeon may recommend a compression bandage or support garment, such as a sports bra. Your surgeon will provide you with detailed, individualized post-operative care instructions.
