5 Breast Augmentation Preparation Tips

How To Prepare For Breast Augmentation

Getting breast implants could be one of the best investments in yourself that you will ever make. You may need to make some lifestyle changes to accommodate for the recovery period and also make sure you are mentally prepared for the physical changes. For many women, undergoing breast augmentation St. Louis surgery provides a boost of self-confidence and also often improves their body image.

Make sure you enjoy a speedy recovery and get the best results with these five breast augmentation St. Louis preparation tips:

#1: Prepare Your Rest Areas

You’ll need plenty of pillows and cushions to rest upon when you’re relaxing on the couch or settling in for a good night’s sleep. Stock up on body pillows, fluffy pillows, and cushions so that you can sit up straight comfortably during the first few days of recovery and cushion your lower back when sleeping in your bed.

#2: Take Recommended Supplements

We may recommend herbal supplements to promote faster healing and reduce excessive swelling before and after your procedure. Make sure you’re aware of the recommended dose and have enough available through your breast augmentation recovery period.

#3: Prepare Healthy Meals

You may not have the time — or the ability — to go grocery shopping and prepare meals following your surgery. Cook up larger batches of your favorite healthy recipes and freeze them for the days and weeks you may be resting at home.

#4: Store Ice Packs in the Freezer

You may need an ice pack to minimize some of the pain, discomfort, and swelling you experience for the first few days after surgery. Store a few ice packs of different sizes in the freezer so you can take care of any swelling around the chest area.

#5: Put Together a Versatile Wardrobe

You will be wearing a post-op bra for a few weeks after surgery and the swelling will make it difficult to wear some of your favorite styles of clothing. Put together a wardrobe of loose-fitting tops and tees for comfort and make sure you’re wearing breathable fabrics when you’re spending time in the sun. Stick with button-down shirts and loose-fitting tops to remove clothing easily after getting breast implants. Avoid wearing underwire during this time.
