6 Tips For an Easier Breast Augmentation Recovery

For some women undergoing a breast augmentation, the recovery is more worrisome than the procedure itself. Whether considering silicone or saline implants, the thought of ‘downtime’ and side effects can be nerve-wracking. The reality is, there will be some level of discomfort after a surgical procedure. Your body will need time to heal. The good news is, paying attention to your post-operative instructions and taking extra care of your body will make the road to recovery much easier.

1) Don’t go alone!

There is no denying that breast augmentation takes a toll on the body. It is extremely valuable to have a friend or family member by your side to assist before and after the procedure. It will be difficult to perform normal activities independently for 24 to 48 hours following the surgery.

2) Rest, rest, rest

During a breast augmentation patients are given general anesthesia and are prescribed pain medication following the surgery. These medications will help the body relax but can lead to drowsiness. Recovery time can vary from person to person, but all patients should allow themselves to rest as much as possible for several days following the surgery.

3) Hydrate!

Aside from the drowsiness that medications can cause, they may leave you feeling very thirsty. It is important to have plenty of water ready—and within arm’s reach—for the time spent resting.

4) Avoid lying horizontally

To ensure not to overexert the body, a recliner or upright seating positionis recommended when you first arrive home from surgery. For a few days to a week, it may be difficult and uncomfortable to lie down horizontally.

5) Stay positive!

It is important to remember that discomfort is temporary and completely normal. Patients recovering from breast augmentation will often be surprised at how soon they feel able to get back on their feet, with some short-lived physical limitations.

6) Take the doctor’s advice in the weeks and months to come

The weeks and months after the surgery are a crucial time to ensure proper healing. Following the post procedure instructions we give you will lead to a more comfortable and more successful recovery. To avoid scar tissue buildup and maximize recovery, Dr. Franckle may  recommend certain exercises and massaging methods so that the implant falls into place appropriately. Any questions about your recovery should be directed to Dr. Franckle or our office staff. We are just a phone call away!

Dr. William Franckle Testimonials
@wfrancklemd

What's a Rhinoplasty REALLY like?? →⁠ 👃🏽👃🏽

⇥ To begin the rhinoplasty procedure, Dr. Franckle will make the internal and external incisions⁠

(..depending on if it is an open or closed rhinoplasty)⁠

⇥ The placement of the incisions will also depend on your unique surgical goals, which will be determined during your consultation⁠

⇥ Once the incisions are made, Dr. Franckle can lift the soft tissues and gain access to the cartilage and nasal bones that create the shape of the nose⁠

⇥ From there, the small cartilages in the top and bridge of the nose can be reshaped, and small cuts in the middle nose bones may also be necessary⁠

⇥ Additional incisions are sometimes made at the outer base of each nostril if there is a desire to alter the nostril size or symmetry⁠

⇥ To complete the procedure, Dr. Franckle will finalize the placement of the underlying tissues and nasal skin and close the incisions. ⁠

Since this is an outpatient procedure, you will be able to return home the SAME day of the surgery! ⁠

Rhinoplasty can help patients achieve aesthetic goals, but it may also help those who suffer from nasal breathing problems such as sleep apnea. ⁠

Nose surgery may also be right for candidates who have suffered a nasal fracture and require reconstructive surgery to repair the shape and functionality of the nasal passage.⁠

In addition, if you are bothered by any of the following issues, then a nose job surgery may be right for you:⁠

1. A hooked or crooked nose that impacts facial symmetry⁠

2. A nose shape with a rounded, bulbous tip or disproportionately large nostrils⁠

3. An enlarged bump on the bridge of the nose, also known as a dorsal hump⁠

How Much Time Will I Need to Take Off Work after having a Rhinoplasty Procedure?⁠

→ The first seven days after surgery are the most difficult with pain, swelling, and bruising. Most people working in a sedentary profession find that taking one week of leave is sufficient. ⁠

→ However, anyone wishing to keep the surgery a secret or working in a profession that requires physical activity should take between two and three weeks off. ⁠

Dr. Franckle can provide specific recommendations for you during your pre-operative appointment.⁠
