The length of your recovery period will depend on your specific procedure and other health and lifestyle factors. Recovery times can vary significantly from person to person. The general rule, however, is that you should allow 4-6 weeks for initial recovery following your surgery. Scar maturation often takes longer.
You will need to work with your Surgeon to allow for adequate and proper healing time. It is important to consult with your Surgeon before returning to daily activities such as driving, lifting and exercise.
It is also important to wear the post-operative compression garments throughout your recovery period for the required time frames. At Coco Ruby Plastic Surgery, your garments will be provided by your Surgeon. Good results depend on a collaborative approach and a healthy lifestyle. You will need to be willing to follow the specific instructions given to you by your Surgeon, and attend all post-operative appointments.
Maintaining your Breast Implant Results
Every patient is unique and surgery results can vary from patient to patient. It is important to work collaboratively with your Surgeon and to keep your expectations realistic.
Please keep in mind that your results may be impacted by fluctuations in your weight, skin health or Body Mass Index (BMI). Pregnancy and breastfeeding may also impact on your surgical results following your Breast Surgery.
To maximise the longevity of your Breast Surgery results, it is important to maintain a healthy, nutritious lifestyle.
