Breast Augmentation KnoxvilleUndergoing any kind of surgery is a big deal, including breast augmentation. Knoxville women that are thinking of getting breast implants often ask us about the recovery period for this kind of procedure.

The healing and recovery process for breast augmentation can actually make or break your results. That’s why it’s so important for our patients to plan ahead and make the necessary arrangements to make sure that their results are as beautiful as they deserve.

Recovering from Breast Augmentation

Knoxville women that work with Dr. Hall will get a much more detailed and in-depth guide for their recovery period. Dr. Hall will also ensure that they completely understand all of his postoperative instructions. Getting outstanding, natural-looking results is all dependent on how closely our patients follow his instructions. Here are a few things to keep in mind.

  • Manage your expectations – Many patients expect to see the results of their procedure immediately. This is not the case. It usually takes some time–several weeks or months–for the swelling to go down and for the implants to “settle” into place.
  • Wear your surgical garment – Most patients are fitted with a surgical garment afterward. This surgical “bra” keeps the new implants in place and helps them heal.
  • Plan ahead – First, you will need someone to drive you home after the procedure. Make sure someone can stay with you at least overnight to help if there is an emergency.
  • Don’t exercise – Avoid any kind of strenuous activity because this can raise your blood pressure and heart rate and cause serious complications.
  • Scar management – One of the biggest concerns preoperatively are the scars that result from breast augmentation. Knoxville women should follow all of Dr. Hall’s recommendations for scar care to ensure theirs are as invisible as possible.
  • Make plans – Dr. Hall uses a technique for breast augmentation that causes very little pain and discomfort. He tells his patients to make plans to go out to dinner on the night of their augmentation.  In fact, most patients don’t need pain medication after the night of their surgery.

Again, these are just a few of the things that Knoxville women need to be aware of before they undergo any kind of plastic surgery procedure. Dr. Hall will discuss the recovery period in great detail with all of our patients and will make sure you understand exactly what you need to do to get the best possible results.
