Breast surgery recovery is an important yet often overlooked portion of the process that begins after the procedure has been completed. This phase deserves extra emphasis, because it requires more from the patient than any other portion.

Breast augmentation is usually an outpatient procedure. This means that the procedure is done in a surgery suite, and the patient goes home immediately after the surgery. After the surgery, patients are observed until they are fully awake. Once patients are fully awake and they have taken liquids, they can go home.

Most patients are placed in a sports bra after surgery, which they wear in the early healing period. Most surgeons follow patients very closely during the breast surgery recovery phase, because it is during this period that the most care is needed.
