Recovery From Breast Augmentation

Dr. Sacha Obaid, Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon Serving Dallas, Plano, Southlake, and Nearby Fort Worth, Texas

Breast augmentation surgery is a one-hour procedure that will leave you looking how you’ve always wanted, with fuller, shapelier breasts. You will be able to return home within the same day as your procedure and will likely only need to take prescribed pain medication for 24 to 48 hours afterwards. To keep your body healthy, strong, and looking great after your breast augmentation, you’ll likely want to return to or start an exercise routine. Cardiovascular work like running and doing the elliptical without the arms can begin three weeks post-op, but you’ll need to wait a bit longer to take up exercises like strength training and yoga.
