You should be able to return to work within a few days of Dr. Lesavoy performing breast enlargement surgery, depending on the level of activity required for your job.
Follow Dr. Lesavoy’s advice on when to begin exercises and normal activities. Your breasts will probably be sensitive to direct stimulation for two to three weeks, so you should avoid much physical contact. After that, breast contact is fine once your breasts are no longer sore, usually three to four weeks after surgery.
For at least six weeks, you’ll notice your scars being pink and firm. They may remain the same size for several months, or you may notice them appear to widen. Although your scars will never disappear completely, after several months, they will begin to fade.
Dr. Lesavoy recommends that routine mammograms be continued after breast augmentation for women who are in the appropriate age group, although you should alert the mammographic technician so they can use a special technique to assure that you get a reliable reading, as discussed earlier.
