Swelling 10 days after breast lift and augmentation
Doctor Answers (6)
Swelling can last for weeks to months after Breast Augmentation.
Swelling is normal after breast lift and augmentation.
Swelling after breast lift plus implants is normal.
Swelling peaks over anywhere from 2-4 days, and then gradually dissipates over many weeks.
At the same time, your new implants are "high and tight." but that too will change over time as your skin and muscles stretch, breast tissue compresses slightly , and ribs flatten slightly from the pressure of your new implants and tighter skin brassiere. These changes are over 6-12 months, so at 10 days post-op, you're definitely on the downhill side of your recovery!
Be patient with your recovery and don't exert yourself too much. Bleeding is still a possibility for another week or two. You will continue to look better and better as the next days and weeks go by. Best wishes! Dr. Tholen
