What Not To Wear After A Breast Augmentation

After a breast augmentation procedure your doctor will explain what is needed for aftercare. It is important that you follow his/her advice and don’t do anything strenuous. Your body needs time to heal and the less you interfere with its natural healing process, the better. Do not take any pain medications that weren’t prescribed by your doctor and take a few weeks off work to recover. One of the most important parts of post-surgery aftercare is clothing. After a breast augmentation there are certain garments you shouldn’t wear and some you should. What Not To Wear When it comes to healing, your new breasts will need time to adjust; however, you should avoid bras with underwires or push-ups. Underwire bras do provide ample support but the underwire itself can cause you a great deal of discomfort because it can rub the incisions. Push-up bras, on the other hand, can displace your breast tissue, leading your implants to move and place excessive force on your incisions. What To Wear You should wear a bra while you are recovering from your augmentation surgery. The weight of your new implants requires adequate support to allow the breast tissue to get stronger. You will need to wear a bra all the time in the…

Three Best Sleeping Positions After Breast Augmentation

One of the most important things you can do after you’ve had a breast augmentation procedure is get a good night’s sleep. In fact, you should try to sleep well every night following your surgery because catching some Z’s helps with the recovery process. Besides getting ample sleep, you will need to wear a support bra or compression garment (sort of like a tube top) for five to seven days post-surgery. This bra/garment will keep the implants in place while you recoup and you should leave it on for sleeping. Although many women find sleeping in a traditional bra uncomfortable, the support bra is usually made of relaxed materials and does not contain underwire. When it comes to actually sleeping after breast augmentation, there are three positions that doctors recommend: Side Many people find sleeping on their sides the most restful position to try after they undergo breast augmentation surgery. It doesn’t matter if you sleep on your left or right side, as long as you are comfortable. Use a pillow to support your neck. Back Sleeping on your back can also make for a comfortable position after surgery and many people find this gives them a good night’s sleep. If you are going to sleep on your back following…

Should I Expect Armpit Odour While Recovering From Breast Au...

All surgical procedures come with some risk. Fortunately, serious complications are very rare with breast augmentation. That said, there are some complications that can occur, such as when you have odour from an armpit. Without a proper diagnosis from the surgeon who performed the procedure, it is difficult to explain what the cause could be. Horrible smell in the armpit is usually associated with an infection, although there are some rare instances when the odour could be a side effect of medications being taken during the recovery period. More about infections An infection is the most problematic complication caused by breast augmentation. However, they are very rare, occurring in less than one per cent of cases. Infections usually become apparent within the first two to three weeks post operation, when things don’t seem to be quite right. If the armpit odour is due to infection, it will be accompanied by common signs of infections, such as: Swollen and tender breast Redness around the breast Wound discharge Feeling unwell with a higher temperature Pains and body aches similar to a flu If you notice these signs, you should contact the surgeon who performed the procedure immediately. In some cases, a mild infection can be managed with antibiotics, though this is rarely…

5 Myths About Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation usually involves a plastic surgeon inserting an implant beneath the breast so it looks larger. The procedure can be used to enlarge small breasts or fill out large breasts that have emptied out following pregnancy or some other event. There are many other reasons why women consider breast augmentation, like to reshape their breasts or correct breasts of unequal size. Many patients who have breast augmentation are generally pleased with the results. However, it is important that you know what can and cannot be achieved with this procedure. Here are some common misconceptions about breast augmentation: Myth #1: Breast implants last forever Statistics show that 25 per cent of women need a subsequent surgery after 10 years. There are many reasons why you would need a second procedure, such as a leaking implant, “scar shell” forming around the implant or distortion of the shape, all of which require surgery to correct the problem. Myth #2: Breasts with implants feel the same to the touch as real breasts While silicone breasts are designed to give the same look as real breasts, they are artificial and cannot offer the same feel as natural breasts. That said, you are more likely to notice the presence of an implant in a woman…

Breast Augmentation For Someone Who Is Prone To Keloids

Any surgical procedure that requires an incision will result in the formation of a scar where the cut was closed. The initial scar usually lasts about six weeks, after which it matures and begins to gradually appear pale and flat as it fades with time. After several years, a normal scar will be virtually unnoticeable to the naked eye.
