48 hours post op
You will have significant swelling for at least a couple of weeks and then residual swelling and tightness for at least a few months post op. I recommend that you wait at least 6 months to evaluate your results because your breast shape and size and position will all change throughout that time. Don't hesitate to share any concerns with your Plastic Surgeon as you heal. All the best
2 days after breast augmentation
2 days post op, some advices:
Its too early to talk about final results.
In my practice, after performing a BA I recommend to my patients to limit the movement of the arms for two weeks. After that, you can move your arms taking care and always with common sense.
In this regard, it's not advisable to carry heavy weights to prevent the implant out of position, and allow the formation of the physiological capsule around the implant, also to avoid pain and breast swelling.

Congratulations brittmgonzo on your augmentation! Everyone recovers differently and it really depends on what kind of augmentation you had. It is still very very early after your surgery so it is hard to say what will happen. Swelling can also play a role and can get worse before it gets better. If things continue to get worse or you have concerns, it is important to maintain follow up with your doctor and have your concerns addressed in person as well. Best of luck, MMT
