So, you have gone to your consultation, booked your breast augmentation surgery, and are ready to go. However, before you even leave the house for your breast augmentation, there are some things you should do to ensure a comfortable and quick recovery. Read on for some tips on how to best prepare for your procedure.
Because a low-stress space can definitely help in the healing process, de-cluttering your bedroom, or the area where you will be spending most of your time during recovery, is important. A serene, clean area is super welcoming when you are focusing on recovery. Setting up a “recovery station” is also helpful. On your bedside table or another convenient area, include all the basics you might need to have at arm’s reach. Some common items may include lip balm, tissues, baby wipes, water bottles, the TV remote, and your phone.
During recovery, you will need to keep yourself propped up while lying in bed to reduce swelling and bruising. Make sure you have many pillows on hand, as pillows should be propped up both underneath you and on your sides to prevent rolling over.
Lastly, you will need to secure some childcare for both children and any pets you may have for a day or so. Since you will be recovering, having someone help out with the little ones, and someone who can drive them to any extracurricular activities extremely stress-relieving during recovery. Speaking of the little ones, stocking up on easy-to-make foods or preparing and freezing your food ahead of time will make for happy tummies for the whole family!
