Health Care After Breast Augmentation

Before you undergoing breast augmentation or a breast lift procedure, it should be a requirement that one must first find out if she is eligible for the process and if you are able to afford the breast augmentation surgery cost.

You are eligible if you fit in any of below:

  • A healthy women over the age 18 (for Saline Implants)
  • A healthy women over the age 22 (for Silicone Gel Implants)


You are NOT a Good Candidate if you are:

  • A woman who has an active infection anywhere in the body.
  • A woman with existing cancer or pre-cancer who has not received adequate treatment for those conditions.
  • A woman who is currently pregnant or breast-feeding.

There are also other factors that can also affect breast augmentation procedure, recovery and final result. The person that has undergone the surgery must have at least carefully considered the following:

Overall health
Healing capabilities
Smoke and alcohol intake
Prior breast surgeries
Bleeding tendencies
Predisposition to developing a hardened capsule around the implant

Upon waking from surgery, the patient will probably feel somewhat groggy. If the patient has had twilight, she may still experience grogginess. Post-operative nausea and vomiting are less of a risk with twilight sedation, as well.

Given that the patient who underwent the surgery has completed the process without complications, she must then consider recovery procedures.

Some women have a very easy time of it, while others have more difficulty. As with any type of surgery, some people tend to bounce back quicker than others.

Here’s a few things, possibly discomforting, things a breast augmentation surgery patient may expect.
Post-op depression or post-op “blues
Tightness / Pressure in the Chest
Muscle Spasms
Back pain
Itching and Dry Skin
Limited Mobility
Sore creases
Nausea and Constipation
Loss of Appetite
Yeast Infections
Bruising and Swelling
Bloating / Fluid Retention
Feeling of Engorgement
Stiffness / Tightness Upon Waking in the Morning

While in most cases it will take several days to return to more normal activities after your breast augmentation surgery, it is important to your recovery that you do some small exercise, move around a bit. After breast augmentation, it is often possible to return to work within just a few days or a week. The important part is that you take care of your health and ensure your body gets all it needs for healing itself.
