It’s Time To Commit to a Smooth Recovery
Welcome! You’ve just had breast surgery, and you’re looking forward to getting back to all of life’s activities. No matter why you’ve decided to go on this journey, the next few weeks will include emotional and physical changes. Although people arrive at the decision to undergo breast surgery from many different paths, everyone who completes breast augmentation or reduction can agree upon a desire for a quicker recovery with fewer setbacks to healing.

Physical therapists and clinicians around the country have promoted the arm band for those who have undergone breast augmentation, reduction, or other breast procedures. Made in the USA, our post-op wearable bands are available to help anyone around the globe recover from surgery.
The Best Recommendations for Breast Augmentation Recovery
Your surgeon will know what’s best for you when it comes to your recuperation, but here are some general tips on how to support proper healing and create a more efficient recovery environment:
The best time to ensure a healthy healing process is before you even undergo your surgery. Plan ahead of your procedure by stocking up on supplies, filling prescriptions, adjusting your environment to accommodate your mobility and movement restrictions, and practicing sleeping on your back, as well as using a SHE REX recovery band.
Most surgeons will require you to have someone present for the first 24 hours after breast augmentation surgery. You will need help doing chores, going to the bathroom, and caring for your children.
Reaching above your head and lifting anything heavy will be out of the question for a few days or even weeks until your stitches have healed.
Wearing an underwire bra again will take some time. Surgeons recommend wearing a sports bra, seamless bra, surgical bra, or no bra at all for up to six weeks after your surgery.
If you’re a side or stomach sleeper, sleeping in either position won’t be an option. It is recommended to sleep slightly upright on your back to help reduce swelling, enhance circulation, and keep your breasts in the most natural position as they heal.
To remain as comfortable and pain-free as possible, it’s essential to follow the instructions given to you by your doctor, including medication dosages as well as dietary, hygienic, and rest recommendations.
Light meals allow your body energy to recover, and a variety of foods will serve as a great source of energy and strength.
Patients can get back to regular activities within 1-2 weeks if they give themselves ample time to heal. Rest is the easiest way to encourage a smooth healing process.
