All breast augmentation procedures at The Private Clinic are performed as day cases unless otherwise specified by the surgeon. Once you have been assessed by your surgeon or a member of the nursing team you will be able to leave to carry on your recovery in the comfort of your own home.
Initially, we advise that you take a week off work to recover but some patients choose to take two weeks but this depends on your healing rate and the nature of your occupation. Those with a desk job may find returning to work easier than those who spend all on their feet.
The week following your procedure you should be resting and taking it easy but do not spend all your time stationery, it is important to keep active and make sure to get up for regular short walks but do not try to do too much. You should arrange for someone to help you around the house and to help with childcare if necessary.
Exercise and other strenuous activities should be avoided for 4-6 weeks post procedure and your surgeon will be able to advise you on this.
You will be required to attend a series of follow-up appointments at The Private Clinic with a nurse and then a 6 week check-up appointment with your surgeon. At this stage you should be pretty much back to your everyday activities and your surgeon will be able to advise you on anything that you are unsure of or have questions about.
