Choosing the Right Procedures

I have worked as a receptionist at a popular cosmetic surgery office for the past ten years, and I have seen every type of cosmetic surgery and recovery that you could imagine. Unfortunately, some patients are much better at choosing their procedures than others. For example, we had one patient that opted to have ten nose jobs in a row, which lead to a deformed bridge and a super tiny nose tip. Unfortunately, when she came back a few months later to have the problem corrected, the doctors didn't have enough tissue to work with. On my website, you will learn how to decide which procedures are right for you, so that you aren't left regretting your decisions down the road.

5 Tips For Recovering From Breast Augmentation Surgery

by Michelle Austin

Have you decided to get breast augmentation surgery and the day is approaching? While you may be prepared for the procedure itself, it's just as important to be prepared for the recovery process as well. Here are some tips for recovering from your surgery.

Be Prepared To Rest 

You are going to have some downtime following the procedure where you will be expected to rest. You definitely do not want to put stress on your body, so it is best to plan to take the whole day to just be in bed so that you recover. Have someone help get you things during the day as you need them, and drink plenty of water. 

Move Slowly

If you are going to be active in any way, you'll want to do things slowly and carefully. This even includes lifting your arms up to get something on a shelf. You won't be moving like you used to right after the surgery. It can be easy to make a quick movement by mistake and put a lot of unnecessary stress on your body. 

Preemptively Take Pain Relievers 

There will be a point where your anesthetic from the procedure will wear off and you will start experiencing pain. It is best to start taking your pain relievers before this happens. If you are given a prescription pain reliever, make sure to have that prescription filled and ready to go so that you have it immediately after the procedure. 

Take Anti Nausea Medication As Directed

It's possible that you are going to be given an anti-nausea medication after the procedure. You should take this medication as directed because it will help deal with the nausea you experience as a result of the anesthesia. It is also going to help keep down the pain relievers that you have been taking so that you do not vomit and get them out of your system. 

Sleep On Your Back

If you are the type of person that sleeps on your side or stomach, you are going to want to switch to sleeping on your back. You do not want to put weight on your chest during the recovery process, so do what you can to stay on your back. For some people, this means sleeping in a recliner so that they cannot roll over during the night, while for others it may mean propping some pillows around them.
