It is important to remember that it will take time for you to see the full results of your breast augmentation. The body needs time to heal, and during this recovery period, the appearance of your breasts may not be an accurate reflection of what they will look like a few weeks down the line.
You can expect to experience some swelling and a feeling of tightness around the breasts during the first four to six months after your breast augmentation. During the first four to six weeks, the breasts tend to sit higher on the chest and can feel hard to the touch. As the tissues heal, the breasts will begin to feel softer and will slowly fall into a more natural position.
The recovery period can be uncomfortable and stressful if the patient is not properly prepared. That is why our team at Holcomb – Kreithen Plastic Surgery takes the time to discuss the entire process with the patient.
