At The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center, we always urge our Houston-area patients to take their time when recovering from breast enlargement. The procedure, while quite safe, is still major surgery, and it places a significant strain on your body. If you follow Dr. Eisemann's guidelines and recovery timeline, you'll be able to recover safely and securely.

Breast enlargement recovery is unique for every woman. Everyone's body is different and heals at different speeds. That said, most of our patients are able to return to work about a week after their procedure.

This follows a day or two of rest, which you should take seriously. Be sure you make arrangements to have household errands taken care of while you recover.

There will be some swelling and discomfort for several weeks following your breast enlargement, and it's best to hold off on intense workouts (especially those that place a great strain on your chest) for a while.

Dr. Eisemann will provide you with a more detailed timeline and answer all of your questions before you undergo your procedure.

If you're a Houston, Texas woman considering a breast enlargement, or if you're an out-of-town patient looking for top-notch plastic surgery, please call The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center at 713-766-0071 or contact us online today.
