Phase 5 of Your Breast Augmentation Journey: Planning
Recovery varies from person to person, however we are able to make fairly accurate estimations based on the thousands of procedures performed.
When you plan your procedure, it helps to determine if you need to be healed by a specific event or date and then work backwards.
Here is a fairly accurate timeline for a standard breast augmentation procedure:
|May 22||Out & About||Return to a desk job, do errands, see friends|
|June 22||Begin Exercise||You can resume your exercise routine, but chest exercises will have to wait a little longer.|
|July 13||Almost Healed||You’ll be looking good and can go bra shopping now|
|October 13||Fully Healed||You should be fully healed, all restrictions removed and your implants should be settled into the correct position and be looking natural|
As you can see, you need to allow a good six months to fully heal, so keep that in mind when planning your timing.
You also want to look into financing now. Ask your clinic if this is something they will help arrange. At SpaMedica, we help our patients coordinate the financing they need.
