Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures today. With the growing demand from clients, doctors are making more efforts than ever to make the recovery period as smooth and comfortable as possible.
When it comes to recovering from your Toronto Breast Augmentation, here are 5 tips to make the healing period easier for you.
Traditionally, anti nausea medications have not been prescribed for patients following a breast augmentation. However, since it is extremely common to feel nauseated during the recovery period, doctors are now suggesting the use of anti nausea drugs to alleviate discomfort and reduce its occurrence. Common medications prescribed for nausea are Gravol or Zofran which are effective in treating nausea and vomiting
To reduce redness, itchiness, swelling or bruising following your breast augmentation, your doctor may suggest a topical cream containing Arnica or other soothing ingredients. Although these symptoms typically subside within a few weeks on their own, the cream can help to reduce discomfort and speed up the healing process.
Anti Sensitivity Pads
A common side effect of breast augmentation is increased sensitivity and erect nipples following the procedure. This will usually resolve on its own within a few weeks, but the use of nursing or cotton pads can help ease the discomfort.
Following your Toronto Breast Augmentation it is extremely important to adhere to the post-operative care guidelines to reduce the appearance of scars. One of the best ways to do this is to avoid direct sunlight on the incisions. If you will be in the sun, it is highly recommended to use a high SPF sunscreen to protect the incision areas and any swollen tissue from UV rays. Your doctor may also recommend the use of silicone sheets or topical gels to help with scar reduction once healed.
It is common for the breasts to become sore and sensitive following a breast augmentation. To reduce swelling and discomfort, special supportive garments can be used during the recovery period. Specially designed breast augmentation bras and compression garments may be particularly helpful to help with support and to keep you comfortable.
Although following these recommendations will help to make your recovery period easier, it is important to remember that breast augmentation is still a complex procedure that will take some time to fully recover from. You should allow yourself time to rest and recuperate so that your body is able to heal properly in the first few weeks following the surgery.
