BREAST ENLARGEMENT WITH IMPLANTS
Breast augmentation with implants can be done under general anesthesia or under local anesthesia combined with sedation.
Whether breast augmentation surgery is done under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with intravenous (IV) sedation this is what happens once the surgery has started.
After the procedure you will be taken from the operating room to the recovery area, where nurses will monitor you until you have recovered from the anesthesia. You may have a bulky dressing over your breasts, or you may be wearing a surgical bra. Once you can take fluids well by mouth, the IV will be removed. It will be important to get up and start walking as soon as possible to prevent the complication of blood clot formation in the legs.
Once you get home, it’s important to follow all your surgeon's instructions and keep all your follow-up appointments. Take all the medications that your surgeon prescribes as directed. These may be included in home-care instructions:
During the first few days after surgery you should expect to feel sore. You should avoid lifting, pulling, or pushing until your surgeon says it is safe. Dressings and drains may be removed by your surgeon within a few days. You may be given a special support bra to wear after the dressings are removed. Stitches or adhesive tapes may be removed in about seven days.
You will gradually be able to return to normal activities over several days. You may need to wait a few weeks before returning to physical activities. Please ask us when it is safe to return to work or to specific activities.
