Every patient is different, but many liken the soreness and heaviness after breast augmentation surgery to what it feels like when breast milk comes in after after having a baby.
In most cases, you’ll be able to leave your surgery site and return home the same day as your procedure, but it’s best to have someone take care of you during your recovery period. It’s also wise to take it easy for at least the first week.
Many plastic surgeons recommend massaging your breasts every day for the first six weeks after surgery in order to keep them soft and reduce the risk of capsular contracture-but only if the implants are round. Before you begin massaging your breasts post-surgery, talk to your surgeon about when to start and how to do it properly.
