Swelling can worsen as the day goes on, especially when you're physically active (which sounds like you are). You may want to ease off a bit and take it easier.
Keep your surgeon in the loop. Return to the office for a recheck. However, considering your work, and how early you are (only 10 days postop), I think you are doing amazingly well!! So this all sounds to be within normal limits, but check to be sure. All the best, "Dr. Joe"
I'm glad that your recovering from your breast augmentation is going well. You may still have some mild irritation from your daily activities and that may cause your swelling and tightness. This will resolve in the ensuing weeks. Continue to follow up with your plastic surgeon if you have greater concerns.
Thank you for you inquiry on breast augmentation and healing.
You should contact your plastic surgeon for the best advice. It is important to see your plastic surgeon
because she/he knows exactly what was done for you.
- I usually advise my patients to refrain from strenuous activity for at least six weeks after surgery.
- Standing on your feet all day, reaching, and lifting can cause you to feel the way you do and is strenuous.
- It may be best to wait a few more weeks before returning to work.
I hope this helps.
Thank you for your question. Working as a hairdresser requires a lot of upper body movement. 10 days is very early after breast augmentation surgery and I am not surprised that your breasts well with this increased activity. If your concern please check with your plastic surgeon.
It is normal for your breasts to be swollen and feel hard after surgery, especially if you work using your arm and chest muscles all day. Everyone is different, but you should notice that your breasts will feel normal in about a month.
