Tips for a Good Recovery from Breast Augmentation

Plastic Surgeons serving Denver, Littleton, and Surrounding Areas in Colorado


Recovery from breast augmentation is different for every woman. Typically, work can be resumed within 1 week and a more rigorous exercise routine within 4, but this will be up to your body’s natural ability to heal and the breast augmentation options, such as implant placement, that you choose.

Our board-certified Denver plastic surgeons will work closely with you during your recovery period to make sure everything is progressing as it should. Below are some simple steps you can take at home to help improve your recovery period and reduce unnecessary risks for complications.

After Breast Augmentation

To help decrease your risk for complications, be sure to:

  • Wear your compression garments
  • Take all medications prescribed by Dr. Grossman or Dr. Capraro
  • Keep your incisions clean
  • Carefully follow all restrictions and suggestions made by our plastic surgeons

Other steps you can take to improve your recovery period include:

  • Take several short walks every day
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Avoid alcohol and cigarettes
  • Get good rest
  • Respect your body’s healing process

These steps can help decrease your recovery time and increase your chances for complication free recovery. Our surgeons will work closely with you before, during, and after your breast augmentation to provide you with guidance specifically for your needs at all times.
