Before Implants: Preparing for Your Breast Augmentation Procedure

From the moment you book your breast augmentation procedure, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John Bull will be working closely with you to ensure you’re fully prepared for your surgery. While every preparation plan is different based on the patient’s needs, here’s what you can do to prepare for your surgery:

  • Quit smoking at least six weeks before your surgery.
  • Plan on medication cessation if any of your medications cause blood thinning.
  • Prepare for your recovery by engaging in meal prep and arranging for friends and family to check in on you during the first week after surgery.
  • Buy plenty of surgical bras or compression garments.

After Implants: Recovering from Your Breast Augmentation Procedure

Once you’ve had your breast augmentation surgery, you should have someone pick you up from the surgical center, as you won’t be able to drive home. You may be uncomfortable during the first three or four days after surgery, so you may be provided with pain medication. You’ll need to wear compression garments for at least three weeks to help minimize swelling and bruising.

We usually recommend that patients have at least a week of meals and help scheduled out immediately after their surgical procedure, as this time needs to be spent resting and recovering.

I have been going here with de bull for years I got my first breast augmentation here and felt very comfortable with his staff he is very respectful and was very satisfied with his work. I recently went to reduce my surgery and get a lift and again very please I have also done Botox and other facial treatments and love their work. I would highly recommend going here for any procedure
