You want beautiful sexy breasts, not just a simple breast enlargement. Dr. Jugenburg has studied breast augmentation techniques with some of the world’s most experienced breast surgeons, from whom he has learned the techniques and approaches to perform virtually every type of breast augmentation surgery and to deal with any potential challenge one may encounter during this surgery.
Instructions After Breast Augmentation
Please read carefully these do’s and don’ts after a Breast Augmentation
Surgery is only one of the steps on the way to fuller and more beautiful breasts. Following your surgery, the recovery period is a crucial time during which your body heals from the breast augmentation surgery and your new breast implants settle in to their proper position and shape. During this time it is essential that you follow our post-surgical care guidelines and attend your follow up visits. Failure to do so may lead to sub-optimal, or even unwanted results. We view the recovery period as a time when your body and your breasts are still fragile and must be cared for appropriately.
Following your breast augmentation surgery you CAN:
- eat any food you normally eat
- drink alcoholic beverages only after you have stopped taking your pain medications
- Sleep on your back
- return to office-type work
- lift your arm up to the shoulder level during the first 2 weeks
- lift objects up to 5lb during the first two weeks
These are things you CANNOT do after your breast augmentation
- sleep on your stomach or sides for 6 weeks
- run, jump or perform any other vigorous physical activity that will make your breasts bounce and potentially break open your wounds or dislodge your implants
- try to look at your scars by pulling up on your breasts (to see the breast fold and areola scars) or lifting your arms (to see the armpit scars) because you risk breaking open your wounds
- lift your arms above your shoulders, especially if you had the armpit approach
- do not get your wounds wet for 5 days after breast augmentation surgery unless Dr. Jugenburg has applied a waterproof bandage over your scars (Dr. Jugenburg will always tell you if he has used a waterproof bandage)
Things to remember for as long as you have your breast implants
- before any dental cleaning or dental work, remind your dentist that you have breast implants. They should prescribe you one does of antibiotic to be taken about an hour before your dental session
- before any surgical procedure notify your doctor of your breast implants. They should prescribe you one does of antibiotic to be taken about an hour before your surgery.
- if you ever develop an infection anywhere in your body (such as a bladder infection), treat it right away to prevent the infection from spreading through blood to your breast implants
- if you ever think you may have an infection in your breasts, contact us immediately to be seen and assessed. Catching an infection before it goes deep and involves the implant is essential. If the infection is untreated and the implant becomes infected, it must be removed and not replaced for at least 9 months
- silicone is not absorbed by your body. If a silicone implant ruptures or leaks, an ultrasound and MRI can be used to determine if the implant is intact
- saline is absorbed by your body. If your saline breast implant leaks or ruptures, your breast will deflate. If your breast has not changed, your saline breast implant must be intact
