It's recommended that you take one week off from work to recover from breast enlargement treatment. However, many patients return to the office without any ill effect after just a few days.

Heavy lifting or other strenuous activities should be avoided for at least three weeks after treatment. Likewise, you should refrain from physical or contact sports for at least a month.

Recovery time from breast augmentation will vary from patient to patient. Some people will recover far quicker than others. Your medical records will help your sturgeon develop your recovery plan.

It's vitally important to not rush the recovery process. Your breasts will be delicate, swollen and tender following an implant procedure. In such a state, they can be susceptible to damage and undesirable movement.

A lack of common sense during your recovery period could adversely effect the overall results of your breast enlargement operation. Indeed, some women have been forced to have corrective surgery as a result of not giving their body enough time to heal and adjust.
