With breast implant surgery consistently on the rise, there’s no question that more and more women are seeing that this procedure can be life-changing in many ways.
However, there’s more to understand about breast implants that goes beyond your surgery. Read on for two key tips on how to take proper care of your new breast implants so that they stay their healthiest and looking their best.
Rest is a must
Dr. Andrew Lofman is an expert in breast augmentation in Michigan. In fact, he has performed thousands of breast surgeries over his decade-long career. His top priority is ensuring his patients are not only safe and comfortable throughout the process, but also educated on their role when it comes to healing and caring for their new breasts.
His first, and perhaps most important, tip is to rest following your procedure. Patients must rest for a full two weeks after breast augmentation. This means no lifting of children, exercise or excessive moving around. Even tasks like walking a dog or cooking should be avoided. As such it’s vital to plan for help from family and friends accordingly. Further, you should be prepared to take off work during this time and know that you should completely avoid any heavy lifting for a couple of months following your surgery.
Just as with any surgical procedure, you may feel tired and have less energy than normal. Therefore, you should listen to your body and rest accordingly as you heal.
In addition to resting in order to avoid unnecessary pressure on your implants, you should also ensure you are supporting your new breasts properly. Dr. Andrew will recommend specific surgical bras or high-quality sports bra that you should wear during the day and at night for about a month. This will prevent implants from drifting down to an undesired position.
And, keep in mind, it will take two months or more for swelling to subside and breasts to rest in their final place completely. As such, you may wish to wait to replenish your bras until this time.
