Phases of rehabilitation after breast implants

Rehabilitation after breast lift includes the following steps:

  1. The most important in the first stage of rehabilitation — the first month, during which a woman should observe mode, you can remove all the stress of the shoulder girdle, not to raise your arms above your head, use a special compression garment button band (day and night).
  2. In the following months, gradually remove restrictions — you can do gymnastics, running and swimming. The discomfort should pass. At the end of the second period of rehabilitation, without complications, a woman can wear an ordinary bra.

The features of the first phase of the rehabilitation

How a woman deals with the seams after mammoplasty and to carry out medical advice, depends on how smoothly the whole rehabilitation period and the desired result of the operation.

Rehabilitation after breast implants take about 6 months. Immediately after surgery, the patient is under medical supervision, within 24 hours. Sudden complications, he will be given the next treatment. During this period the patient suffers from severe pain caused by tissue swelling and damage to the muscles. To determine the painkillers and antibiotics for the prevention of purulent inflammation of the operated areas.

When I woke up from anesthesia, it is recommended to take position, half-seated or reclining, in a few hours you can get up and walk around the house.

On the second day the doctor evaluates the condition of the breast after mammoplasty and favorable situation to stay in the hospital does not make sense, he sends the patient home mode. From here on, the result of the first phase of the rehabilitation period depends only on itself.

Home mode

The first two days the house observed a sparing mode, you should get tired, need more sleep, so the housework should take the family members. On the fifth day after surgery, a woman comes to the clinic appointment, if necessary, it is the seams. Then he is still a week gentle home care, which are:

  • sleep lying on his stomach
  • make sudden movements with your hands
  • loading the shoulders
  • expensive body parallel to the floor
  • raise your hands above your head
  • it is possible to raise up to 1 kg

After 7 days, the woman again passes the audit in the clinic. 10-14 days, he can remove the stitches. If all goes well, you can do light housework, but without bending forward and lifting heavy objects. The best way to gradually return to a normal life — walks in the fresh air.

The first week after surgery, adding implants, you may experience increased body temperature. This is the norm — the body gets used to aliena inside the body. So you can bring down the temperature, it is possible to use simple paracetamol, not to create excessive load on the liver.

During rehabilitation, it is important to eat right. The food should be light, but nutritious and versatile. A speedy recovery to promote dairy products, vegetables, fruits, lean meat and fish. Excrete toxins, it is recommended to drink herbal teas, plain water without gas with ginger and lemon.

The first month after surgery is forbidden to have sex — this can lead to displacement of the implant. As mentioned above, the first rehabilitation period is necessary to wear a compression garment day and night.


What you need to wear a compression garment? After surgery the Breasts are very vulnerable to the stitch line. If during this time they experienced the severity of the breast, can stand up and stretch, your Breasts will become soft, in this case, a thin seam turns into the bar, which will not disappear without proper treatment.

Another argument is that silicone implants are held until the injured tissue of the breast without fixation can move toward the nipple. Visually, it makes all the efforts mammoplasty zero. When the Breasts are increased by 2 and more the size, the muscles of the chest and shoulder girdle compression faster get used to the new exercise.

Compression garment a certain repair is determined by the doctor. The bra is made of soft but durable spandex, which gives the necessary support and at the same time to massage the breast, which provides lymph drainage and normal blood flow. The entire Cup should ensure a fixed position of the breast — it should not move around when bending and turning. Straps provided especially wide to take the weight off the shoulder girdle. The belt top and bottom of the bra is recommended to choose so that it is well-liked in the chest in the same position, but not press.

How much you need to wear a compression garment? All different. The first month of rehabilitation is worn around the clock. After that comes to use during sports, regardless of physical activity. When a compression bra, you can replace the standard determined by the attending physician. He also makes recommendations to the bra that the model can be worn for the first six months after surgery. Some of the modern design of the underwear can cause stagnation of the lymph nodes and lead to the development of malignant diseases, there are samples, which do not provide adequate support. After breast mammoplasty without support can re-stretch and lose its beautiful shape.

To care for stitches after mammoplasty

Operation correction of breast is always included sewing. During rehabilitation, it is important to properly care for them to avoid complications.

The first few days after mammoplasty can be a woman's breast ties in, in some cases, the joints must have drainage to drain excess liquid. At this stage, it is not recommended to touch the stitches and remove the ties. Usually 3-5 days after the surgery, the doctor removes the bandages himself and take away the drainage.

Before removing stitches in the chest after mammoplasty, the patient should wear a compression garment. It is forbidden to wet the joints, lubricating them creams, gels or alcohol-based liquids. When you take a shower with stitches are made sterile adhesive strips. The main condition for this period of rehabilitation is to prevent inflammation of the joints.

After removal of the sutures it is necessary to observe hygiene until complete healing. Usually, this occurs within 14-20 days. Sutures heal poorly, if a woman smoking (nicotine inhibits the flow of oxygen to the tissues) and is hormonal contraceptives. The risk of poor wound healing loop is in women who are obese and who undergo cancer treatment. When implants are long-term healing of the joints — a sign of rejection of the implant, which is threatening infectious inflammation. To accelerate the healing of scars using the vacuum sealing of wounds.

So, during rehabilitation treatment work the seams is reduced by the regular change of underwear and keep them clean and dry.

The characteristics of the second phase of the rehabilitation

You need to be in the second stage of rehabilitation? After 2 months after surgery, all the hard and heavy was left behind. Women return to good health, the swelling subsides, the joints becoming lighter and less noticeable. Until the whole rehabilitation period of 6 months, the woman needs to follow some rules:

  • to avoid serious physical exertion, which causes fatigue in the muscles
  • do not sunbathe without a bra, it is better, in General, is not exposed to the breast mammoplasty after exposure to direct sunlight
  • Solarium
  • avoid visiting saunas and Russian baths, where the temperature rises above 100 °C.
  • to prevent long-term exposure of the mammary glands with water

Also this season is the breast massage. In some cases, massage is not necessary, for example, when implants are teardrop-shaped. But if massage you need, the doctor needs to say and show you how to do it. Massage can be done in about 15 days after surgery.

Why I need a massage:

  • increases blood circulation
  • to reduce the pain
  • to speed healing
  • prevent swelling

After the end of the second period, you can drink alcohol, sleep on my stomach and play sports.

During the second period of rehabilitation not to get pregnant, hormonal changes can lead to undesirable consequences. In addition, the mammary gland tissue and ducts had not yet become the right shape.
