Breast Implants And Recovery after Surgery

It’s hard to prepare yourself for what it will feel like after a breast augmentation. In most cases these implants are placed beneath the muscle and the expansion of the muscle and tissues results in changes that are fairly common amongst patients. I recently asked all of my breast implant patients to describe what they felt during the first week after their procedure, consolidated in the list below. Pain. This is universal but can range from mild to pretty bad. […]
