Common Breast Implant Questions
at Plastic Surgery Arts of New Jersey
What is the recovery time for breast implants?
The recovery time for a breast implant procedure is around 3-5 days. If your breast implants are positioned over the chest muscle the recovery time will be shorter compared to implants placed under the muscle. For the first 48 hours following surgery, it is recommended that you elevate your back and breasts to reduce swelling and bruising. The swelling and bruising will improve quickly over the first 1-2 weeks, and continue to decrease slowly over the next several months.
When can I return to work after receiving breast implants? And start exercising again?
Most patients feel well enough to return to work within a week of the breast implant procedure. You can be up and walking immediately after the procedure, and light exercise and more moderate workouts can be considered after 3-4 weeks, but heavy exercise routines should be avoided for at least a full month after breast implant surgery. Always consult with your physician before starting an exercise regime, as breast implant recovery times vary per patient.
Why should I choose Plastic Surgery Arts of New Jersey for breast implant surgery?
The plastic surgeons of PSANJ specialize in endoscopic breast augmentation - a minimally invasive technique in which a small incision is made in the armpit.
