5 Recovery Tips After Your Breast Augmentation in New Jersey

Breast Augmentation With Implants

Breast augmentation in New Jersey is sought after by women of all ages and backgrounds. An incredible body-reshaper, breast implants can help restore your figure, self-esteem and body proportion. The recovery from this elective surgery has become easier due to innovations in surgical techniques. Planning for recovery and following instructions are important, but with a few tips, the process can be much easier.

Plan ahead, to relax later

The best time to plan for a comfortable recovery after breast augmentation in New Jersey is in the days and weeks before.

If possible, fill your prescriptions ahead of time, and pick up supplies like extra gauze, ice packs, wet wipes, light snacks, straws and entertainment. While you’re laying low indoors for a week or two, you’ll have a chance to catch up on reading, your favorite TV shows and other passive activities.
We recommend you run errands and go shopping so that you don’t run out of food and supplies. You should also clean and wash all your laundry ahead of time. That way you can enjoy having fresh, comfortable clothes and linens without worrying about housework.

Ask for help

New Jersey breast augmentation surgeons will typically advise that you go home with another adult and have someone stay with you for at least 24 hours. Directly after surgery, especially after general anesthetic, you could feel slightly nauseous, dizzy and weak. Having someone to help you get around, offer snacks and ensure you take your medication is useful. In the rare case that a patient experiences anything medically concerning, having someone nearby can keep you safe and give you peace of mind.

Do you have pets or children? You’ll need help with tasks like dog-walking. Picking up kids is not allowed for several weeks. To avoid straining yourself and because you’ll need rest, plan ahead to get support for these areas of your life and you’ll have a stress-free recovery.

Follow your plastic surgeon’s instructions

Dr. Gartner advises his patients to avoid sports, regular workouts, heavy lifting and certain activities that might jeopardize recovery. They are also asked to refrain from swimming or hot tubs due to infection risk. We provide patients with a short course of antibiotics, and we caution them to avoid over the counter anti-inflammatories or supplements that could lead to bleeding. Your surgeon will have similar instructions for you, and it’s essential that you take them seriously as they’re in place to protect you. Though restrictions can be an inconvenience, the temporary annoyance is well worth beautiful results in the long run.

Take plenty of time off

After a breast augmentation, some patients can return to light work in only a week. People are advised to take one to two weeks off, but their specific lifestyle and job requirements influence that recommendation. One thing we never hear is, “I wish I had taken less time off.” You may underestimate how tiring the simple healing and adjustments can be after your BA. While most people don’t feel significant discomfort after one week, they welcome the pressure-free time in the following days to move slowly and adjust to the body changes. Why not take a break? You deserve it.

Develop the healthiest lifestyle you can

Smoking and excessive drinking can be detrimental to healing, but not eating a balanced, whole diet or getting regular exercise can affect you negatively as well. In general, you’ll heal faster and feel energized if you’re healthy before surgery. In the long run, maintaining stable body weight will help preserve your breast augmentation results and improve your overall fitness and confidence.
