For many patients, the recovery period is always the hardest. When you have a busy schedule you want to dive directly into your old self right out of surgery. The length of your recovery time is mostly up to you and how well you take care of herself. Here are a few tips you can use to help speed up the recovery process after your Manhattan breast augmentation.
Get Your Home Ready
After breast implants, no one wants to come home to a messy home and dirty laundry. During the first two weeks, it will be difficult for you to tend to any household chores. Clean your bedroom, bathroom, and change your bed sheets prior to your plastic surgery. Bring down the things you constantly use from high shelves and place them on your counters or bedside table. Reaching up for anything might be too strenuous and is not recommended.
Avoid smoking before or after your breast augmentation procedure. Smoking can significantly affect your healing process and delay your recovery time.Since oxygen is the basis for wound healing, smoking deprives the body of the much needed oxygen it needs to repair and build cells. It is not good for your health, period.
No Strenuous Physical Activities
After any procedure, your body needs time to rest and heal; avoiding excessive physical activity for at least 3 to 4 weeks to ensure a speedy recovery process. This does not mean you have to avoid moving altogether, you should just refrain from lifting, pulling, or carrying anything heavy.
Call Your Plastic Surgeon
All your questions should be asked prior to any surgery during your consultation but if you have questions or concerns; feel free to contact your surgeon for answers after surgery as well. They are there to help you through the process. It is important to stay in touch with your doctor during your recovery process.
