The Recovery Process After Breast Implant Surgery
Breast augmentation surgery is being performed by a plastic surgeon that you’ve selected. A decision has been made about the type of breast implants you want (saline, silicone, or gummy bear implants) and their size, as well as how they will be placed. A date has also been set for the procedure. Getting ready for recovery is another thing you’ll want to take care of before your breast augmentation surgery.
It is important to make the proper preparations before breast implant surgery in order to facilitate faster healing and ensure a smooth recovery after the procedure. Having made the necessary arrangements will make your recovery less stressful after your surgery.
In order to prepare for recovery, what should you do? The following are some helpful tips you should keep in mind.
Make arrangements for assistance
A ride home from the procedure will need to be arranged for you. It is unsafe to drive after breast augmentation surgery since general anesthesia is required to complete the procedure. There may also be some pain and stiffness after the procedure, and driving may be difficult.
You should also arrange to have someone stay with you for at least 24 hours after surgery in addition to having someone drive you home. It will be extremely helpful to have someone assist you with getting around, preparing your food, and making sure you are comfortable and safe.
After your breast augmentation procedure, a trusted adult family member or friend will assist you in a variety of ways, some of which are personal. The alternative is to hire a nurse assistant to assist you during the recovery process.
Preparation of meals
Even if someone lives with you, he or she will eventually have to leave the house after you have surgery, even if they stay with you for the first 24 hours. Due to this, you should prepare your meals before surgery, since you won’t always have someone around to get you food; plus, you won’t feel up to cooking for a few days afterwards.
Preparing some of your favorite dishes and storing them in the fridge or freezer will help you save time and money. Rather than cooking, buy items that are easy to prepare, such as sandwich meat, bread, fruits, vegetables, and other grab-and-go items.
Put on and take off loose, comfortable clothing
Following your surgery, you should avoid wearing form-fitting clothing. Wear loose, comfortable clothing prior to your procedure; button-up or zip-up tops are ideal. Wearing and removing anything that requires lifting your arms over your head should be avoided.

East Norwalk is the location of Norwalk’s original colonial settlements. The land was purchased from the Norwalke Indians by Roger Ludlow in 1640. Historical markers in the neighborhood include the Founding Monument on East Ave and the First Settlers Monument inside the East Norwalk Historical Cemetery.
British forces under General William Tryon arrived on July 10, 1779, at Fitch’s Point and destroyed most of Norwalk by fire; only six houses were spared. A portion, of then former Governor Thomas Fitch’s house was left standing and in the 1950s it was moved to the Mill Hill Historic Park to make way for the construction of the Connecticut turnpike (I-95).
In 1913, East Norwalk combined with the Town of Norwalk, the City (formerly Borough) of Norwalk, and the city of South Norwalk into the present day City of Norwalk. East Norwalk is now within the city’s third taxing district.Learn more about East Norwalk.
