I had a beast lift and 325 saline implants. To be completely honest to pain & recovery was more than I ever bargained for. The first week was very hard, I had massive swelling, the discomfort and pressure was extremely painful. The second week the edge was taken off, but still very uncomfortable & exhausted. I could not go Back to work. I began massaging them constantly to help my implants descend. In my personal experience I had a lot of anxiety. By week 3 I finally began to feel like myself. I realize having the lift is what caused a lot of my pain. Having both the lift & implants done at the same time saved me money & recovery time, it was harder to recover from than I could imagine. However! Everyone is different & recovers at different time lengths. I'm just returning to work. At the end of the day.....it was completely worth it. Just wished I knew that my recovery would have taken as long as it did.
