Life After Breast Augmentation

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


At Grossman Plastic Surgery, we believe strongly in preparing patients for what they can expect after their procedure. A breast augmentation is a significant procedure, and it will be the cause of many changes for our Denver-area patients.

Fortunately, these changes are welcome. And even better, you will be able to live your life and enjoy all your passions after undergoing a breast augmentation.

Still, it’s important you know what to expect after your breast augmentation recovery. We will answer all of your questions about post-augmentation life and make sure you know what to expect.

If you live in the Denver, Colorado area and have questions about breast augmentation, please call Grossman Plastic Surgery at 303-320-5566.

Physical Changes

The most obvious physical effects of a breast augmentation are larger breasts. That’s the stated goal of just about every patient who asks about the procedure. Women often report that it takes a little bit of time to adjust to the new breast size, so don’t worry if you find yourself struggling to find bras and clothes that fit just right.

Living with the significant physical changes brought on by a breast augmentation is a learning process. Give yourself some time and you’ll be more than satisfied with the end results.

Lifestyle Changes

The fundamental truth here is that a breast augmentation should not meaningfully affect your lifestyle. Your hobbies and passions may remain your hobbies and passions after you undergo a breast augmentation.

For example, quite a few women who come to us for a breast augmentation are among the countless Denver residents who enjoy vigorous exercise and outdoor activities. We get a lot of questions about the ability to continue those practices after an augmentation.

A breast augmentation will not interfere with your exercise regimen. If you’re a long-distance runner or a weightlifter, you should discuss this with our plastic surgeons, as that will affect issues like implant size and placement. But you don’t have to worry about giving up what you love after an augmentation.

Mindset Changes

Finally, there are harder to detect psychological and emotional challenges that come along with undergoing any plastic surgery procedure. Even a “routine” recovery can be mentally taxing.

Furthermore, mentally adjusting to your new shape after a breast augmentation can be difficult. Patients sometimes report feeling like a new person after a procedure, and that can pose a significant strain to one’s sense of self.

It’s important to remember a few things:

  • These feelings are completely normal. Don’t let normal post-operative stress or worries snowball into something worse.
  • Anticipating these feelings will make dealing with them much easier.
  • You are not alone. Grossman Plastic Surgery is here for you. We have numerous resources to help you handle the post-augmentation difficulties you might experience.

Plastic surgery is a unique and satisfying journey. At Grossman Plastic Surgery, we’re here to help you navigate it safely and without undue stress.
