Sleeping After Breast Augmentation
Every surgeon does things differently. You should follow your surgeons post op instructions. If none were provided for you, you should call the surgeon's office and request these instructions.
Usually 1-2 weeks then on your back
Thank you for asking. You should check with your surgeon, as we all have slightly different routines. I have patients sleep semi-upright for 1 week then on their back for 6 weeks with a support bra, and no
sleeping on your side for 6 weeks.

How long to sleep elevated?
Thank you for your post. You should talk to your plastic surgeon about this as I am not sure exactly what was done during the surgery. In general, in my patients I only ask them to sleep elevated the first week, then on their back for another 5 weeks if possible.
