What is Recovery Like from Breast Implant Exchange or Removal?
Once women have these procedures, the recovery will be similar, yet for those who have larger implants, it may feel different.
Dr. Zuriarrain will advise lots of rest over the first few days. Supporting bras will be advisable or elastic bandages to be worn during this initial period for support. If there is major discomfort, oral painkillers can be prescribed. Patients will also experience swelling and bruising over these first few days.
One these first few days are over, the majority of women are back to their regular routine, and Dr. Zuriarrain will advise when they can think of returning to work. In the cases of the breast implant being removed, it could be quicker than the patients who have an implant exchange of the same size or larger.
Depending which particular procedure patients went through, final results can start to be seen once the swelling subsides. In some cases, it can take up to three months before all of the swelling subsides, and the results are seen.
