Beverly Hills Institute of Plastic Surgery Presents Recovering After Breast Augmentation: What to You Need to Know Before Your Procedure
Like any surgery, breast augmentation is something that needs to be carefully planned and prepared for. Note all these tips which are mentioned below: • Keep Your Blood Pressure Down • You Will Need to Quit Smoking • You Can and Should Touch Your Implants • You Need to Pick Your Surgeon Carefully • You May Have to Abandon Your Plan
Keep Your Blood Pressure Down • Strong emotions can raise your blood pressure. • This means everything from stress to physical exertion to being overly happy is off-limits, for at least two weeks after surgery. • Keep as calm as possible from day to day, as increased blood pressure increases the likelihood of bleeding issues.
You Will Need to Quit Smoking • You should quit smoking at least two weeks before and after your surgery. • Smoking slows the healing process, can interfere with anesthetics, and increases risk of capsular contracture, a condition where the implants harden and look abnormal.
You Can and Should Touch Your Implants • Perform the massage exercises every two hours for two to four weeks following breast augmentation. • Carefully moving the implants around will work to keep scar tissue surrounding the implant as flexible as possible.
Pick Your Surgeon Carefully • Be sure your doctor is board certified. • Make sure your surgeon is upfront with you as well. • Surgeon should let you know of all the risks and expound on the precautions you can take to lessen those risks.
You May Have to Abandon Your Plan • You can have a plan in mind, but your skin may not be willing to conform to it. • It may be your skin is too elastic to only go up one cup size, or it may be your desired cup size is too large to obtain without permanently damaging your skin. • A good surgeon will take all of this into account when sizing your implants.
