With extra time off work and less enticing outdoor weather, the fall and winter months are the most common time for patients to undergo serious plastic surgery procedures, including breast augmentations. Knowing a few things about breast augmentation recovery should help when trying to decide when to schedule your surgery.

Most breast augmentations are performed on an outpatient basis, so you will need some help driving to and from surgery. As expected with any surgery, there will be a healing period to consider. After your breast surgery, be ready to take up to five days off of your normal routine for breast augmentation recovery without stress or strain on the body.

You may also be given a surgical bra. You should wear this as directed by your surgeon. The specialized bra is designed to help position and set the breasts after surgery.
