When you wake up from breasts enlargement treatment, you will feel tired, stiff, a little sore. Your breasts have been through quite an ordeal when you've been sleeping, so they will be a little tender.

In the first couple of days after breast augmentation surgery, this fatigue and moderate discomfort may continue. The pain will be very mild, and should pose no problem to most women. For those with low pain thresholds, medication can effectively control the discomfort.

Approximately three or four days after breast enlargement, you will return to the clinic to have the gauze dressings removed. You will be given a a surgical bra to wear to help support your new breasts. Many surgeons use self absorbing stitches but if ordinary stitches are used, they will removed after seven days.

Your breasts will remain sensitive for several weeks after the operation. They may be swollen for up to six weeks but will gradually heal and recover.

Swelling, sensitivity and discomfort is your body's way of telling you to take it easy. Although breast enhancement is a relatively routine procedure, it does put tremendous strain on your breast area. Give your body the time it needs to heal and adjust to the new additions to its makeup.
