1. Functional Rest
The body needs to recover from the aggression produced by dissecting the breast and placing a prosthesis (although controlled, it does not stop being a stress situation for the tissues). It is not about not making any movement with the arms, but that they are smooth, without carrying any weight or forcing the extension.
This will facilitate healing, the formation of the capsule around the implant, and avoid the accumulation of fluid, the rotation of the prosthesis (which would be a big problem in the case of anatomical, since it would change the shape of the chest ) or the possible bleeding of the area.
In addition, rest of the arms will reduce inflammation and therefore make recovery faster.
To avoid unwanted mobilization of the breasts in the postoperative period of any breast augmentation surgery with implants, the bra and sometimes the breast band will be essential.
In this way we will keep the implant in place while the tissue heals.
Not using the right bra or removing it from the recommendations of the surgeon may compromise the result. A specialized breast augmentation bra will be the best option during your recovery period. It will help prevent any scarring or unwanted movement and help you to heal.
After surgery, the skin of the breast is more stretched, due not only to the volume of the implant but also to the inflammation.
This sudden distension (greater in less elastic skins and prostheses of large volumes), together with the continued use of the bra, can suppose a greater dryness and tightness of the skin, which sometimes occurs with irritation or itching.
Keeping the skin properly hydrated will improve this and prevent the appearance of stretch marks.
