After breast implantation, I like women to wear a bra for one to two weeks for a straightforward breast augmentation. I think it helps with the comfort, etc. It helps the implants stay in a certain position.

Within my own practice, the recovery, I use Exparel, which is a liposomal marcaine, which provides pain relief for up to three days following the breast augmentation. We try to limit narcotic use and have a return of activity as soon as possible.
