One of the most critical times for our patients is their recovery period after their breast augmentation. Omaha patients that do their best to follow Dr. Ayoub’s postoperative instructions can have a massive impact on the quality of their results. As the body heals and the implants settle into place, there are a number of strategies and techniques that you should use to make sure that your results look natural and stunning. In this blog post we’ll look at a few of these “Dos and Don’ts, ” and we’ll also discuss some of the things that you can watch out for during the recovery period. Of course, all of our patients will spend a great deal of time talking with Dr. Ayoub about their recovery and will also get an extensive guide that they can take home with them.

How to Recover Breast Augmentation

Omaha patients that follow Dr. Ayoub’s postsurgical instructions can ensure that their scars heal and that their implants look terrific. Here are a few of those instructions.

The Do’s

  • Take it easy – Make sure you rest for a couple of days after your surgery and avoid any heavy lifting or strenuous activity. Many of our patients can go back to work after a couple of
  • Eat and drink well – Drink lots of water and eat lots of fruits, vegetables, and healthy foods. This will give your body all the resources it needs to heal quickly.
  • Wear the compression garment – As your body heals around the breast implant, make sure you’re wearing your compression garment. This will make sure that your body forms a good scar pocket around the implant.
  • Treat yourself – After a breast augmentation, Omaha women deserve to look and feel their best. Now is the ideal time to splurge a little and get something that makes your new cleavage and bust look fantastic.

The Dont’s

  • Don’t sleep on your side – Sleeping on your side can cause serious complications with your breast implants.
  • Don’t smoke – Smoking will greatly hinder your body’s ability to heal properly.
  • Don’t wear underwire or push-up bra – For at least a month after your procedure, avoid bras with underwires and push up bras. The underwire can irritate the incision scars. A push-up bra can displace the implant as it heals inside the pocket.
