Each woman’s recovery is different. In general, you will feel a little sore for several days following your breast augmentation surgery. The first 24 to 48 hours after your procedure is when you will experience the most discomfort. Your breasts will be swollen and tender. An important part of recovery involves wearing a bra. This is designed to provide you with extra support while you heal. Meet with Dr. Niessen to see if breast augmentation is right for you.
