Q: Healing After Augmentation: Consequences to Not Taking Required Downtime?

Submitted by Q-A from clee on Fri, 05/13/2011 - 07:54

What are the consequences of not taking the recommended time to heal after a breast augmentation? I had surgery 3 weeks ago, by week one I wasn't in a lot of pain and was back to minimal house work and taking care of small children. At week two I had no pain and was doing practically everything I have done in the past except for lifting heavy objects. Will there be any consequences for not following guidelines? Should I be concerned?

A: Once the implant is adherent and skin healed, the consequences are low

Once your implant is adherent and skin healed the consequences are low.  The following points will should be considered:

  1. Usually the skin is sealed by 5 days (can shower) but it takes 6 weeks for it to be durable for load (ie exercise)
  2. Easier to recover from subglandular than submuscular as muscle dissection painful and slightly higher risk of fluid collection around implant.
  3. Too much activity early after surgery causes implant movement and prevents adherence and increases risk of fluid collections or bleeding.

A: Stay away from none surgeries such as injections

Avoid undergoing non-surgical breast augmentation procedures such as injections with foreign materials. They have proven to be problematic.
