10 Weeks Post Op Breast Augmentation.

You are now at 10 weeks post op breast augmentation. You should be able to start doing more of your normal activities.

1 Week Post Op Breast Augmentation

At one week, you can begin to do light activity and start walking around. You should still be taking it easy, but this is a big step towards recovery from your breast augmentation.

At this point, you should not be sleeping on your stomach or doing any strenuous activity for the next six weeks. Avoid heavy lifting or driving for 24 hours after surgery as well, as these activities may cause pain or bleeding in the incision site.

You can also begin to shower at this time; however make sure that you are careful not to get water near your incision or under your bandages as this could cause irritation and infections. If you are experiencing any discomfort when taking a shower (especially with hot water), try using a cool setting instead of warm or hot until the tenderness subsides completely within two weeks after surgery.

2 Weeks Post Op Breast Augmentation

As the weeks pass, you will notice a gradual improvement in your overall energy and ability to perform normal activities. You should be able to return to work and resume driving. You can also swim, lift weights and have sex with your partner again.

During this period, it is important that you avoid strenuous activity such as heavy lifting as well as very hot or cold water temperatures that may cause swelling. In addition, avoid alcohol consumption until all stitches are removed (usually 10-14 days post op)

You should not be wearing anything tight against your breasts (i.e., bras). However at 2 weeks post op, you may start wearing a sports bra which has both compression cups along with straps that go around the back of each shoulder blade for support – this will take pressure off of your incisions so they don’t stretch out prematurely during exercise sessions down at the gym!

3 Weeks Post Op Breast Augmentation

You should be able to start doing more of your normal activities at this point. You can start driving, exercising, and sleeping on your side. You can also wear a bra and sports bra if you want as well.

4 Weeks Post Op Breast Augmentation

At this point you should be able to do more normal activities and even return to work if you have not already. You should also be able to do some light exercise and lifting of your arms above your head, but no heavy lifting or strenuous activity until the 6 week mark.

5 Weeks Post Op Breast Augmentation

You can start to wear a sports bra.

You can start to wear a regular bra.

You can start to exercise, but just lightly and slowly at first! You will likely have some bruising and swelling on your chest as well as pain with any stretching or movement of your arms above your head for the next couple weeks. Light cardio for about 20 minutes is fine, but if you were planning on doing intense weight training or running in the near future we recommend waiting until after this surgery before returning to those activities. Be sure not to do anything that causes pain or discomfort while recovering from surgery!

You can shower while taking care not to get water directly into the incision sites (keep them dry). You may also need someone else around who knows how long it takes for them (and you!) before they’re ready for a second shower because they might need to wash their hair again right after getting out of bed without having enough time between baths yet again (which could cause more swelling).

Don’t forget that everyone heals differently so there’s no way of knowing exactly when an individual person might feel comfortable enough getting back into normal routines like showering/swimming etc., but these are good guidelines based off what we’ve seen work best with our patients thus far!

6 Weeks Post Op Breast Augmentation

You should be able to start doing more of your normal activities. It’s important to pace yourself, but you should feel comfortable driving and lifting things. You can also start exercising again. While exercising is not recommended before the 10-week mark, it’s okay after this point as long as you listen to your body and don’t push yourself too much. Sleeping on your side is fine now as well—and this will make it easier for you when we put in breast implants!

7 Weeks Post Op Breast Augmentation

At this point, you should be able to return to work, resume normal activities and begin exercising. You can also start swimming and jogging again.

You should be able to return to yoga at this point as well!

8 Weeks Post Op Breast Augmentation

8 Weeks Post Op Breast Augmentation:

  • You should be able to do more of your normal activities, including exercise.
  • You can return to work and school.
  • You can go back to your normal routine and resume some light housework.

9 Weeks Post Op Breast Augmentation

9 Weeks Post Op Breast Augmentation

It is important to continue following your post-operative instructions. Your plastic surgeon will have given you specific guidelines after your procedure, but here are some general rules for the first few weeks:

  • No heavy lifting (over 5 pounds) or contact sports (such as volleyball and basketball). If you do any strenuous activity like yard work or house cleaning, use a pillow under the arm that is exercising. Perform only light housework such as dusting and vacuuming.
  • Do not sleep on your stomach until at least 3 months post-op due to the risk of cutting off circulation to your newly implanted breast tissue if it becomes compressed between your body and the mattress while sleeping face down.

10 Weeks Post Op Breast Augmentation

You are now at the 10-week mark, and you can start to do some of the things that you may have been unable to do in the weeks prior.

  • You can lift your arms above your head for the first time (you should still be avoiding heavy lifting).
  • You can begin exercising if you’re not already doing so. It’s important not to overdo it though! Start slowly and work up to more intense workouts slowly.
  • You will also be able to wear a sports bra when working out if desired, as well as any other type of exercise clothing (including bras) that will support your breasts while working out or lifting weights.
  • The same goes for wearing a bikini top around town: you might want one on hand just in case! I highly recommend having one waiting at home; this way it only takes a few seconds before being ready for fun in the sun!

At 10 weeks post op breast augmentation you should be able to start doing more of your normal activities. This can include driving, exercise, swimming, returning to work and sleeping on your side. You can also wear a bra that is not a sports bra.

You should be feeling great at this point and be able to start doing more of your normal activities. You may even notice some changes in the size of your breasts, which is completely normal. We hope you have enjoyed reading through this blog series on 10 Weeks Post Op Breast Augmentation!

So, you’re 10 weeks post op and still healing. That’s great! You should be doing everything in your power to keep your new breasts looking and feeling as good as they possibly can. Here are some tips on how to do that:

You’re still healing.

You’re still healing. It’s been a little over a week since your surgery and you may feel sore and swollen, especially if you had implants placed under the muscle. Your doctor will help you decide what kind of bra to wear based on how much support you need (you might want to use an ace bandage for the first few days). You may have some pain that can be controlled with over-the-counter medications like ibuprofen or Tylenol. You should not take aspirin because it can increase bleeding during this healing period.

In addition to feeling different, your breasts will look different as they heal and settle into their new shape. Numbness around the incision sites is common in these early days after surgery; this sensation should improve within several weeks after surgery but sometimes doesn’t go away completely until several months later.

Your breasts will look and feel different.

You may have some swelling for a few days, which can make your breasts feel tight. This is normal and will go away on its own, so try not to worry too much about it! Your doctor may prescribe an over-the-counter pain medication in case you experience any discomfort.

The shape of your new breasts will take time to settle down. It’s possible that you’ll notice them being higher or lower than you thought they’d be when looking from the side or from above (this is called “bottoming out”). You might also notice some asymmetry at first—that one breast looks different than the other one—but this should even out over time as well. If this happens, don’t panic! It’s normal for implants to shift slightly after surgery, especially during the first few weeks post op—and any slight differences in size between your two sides should even themselves out over time as well once everything heals up nicely without any complications (which isn’t always guaranteed). In fact, some women feel like they need a minor revision surgery after noticing their new look settles into place before they’re satisfied with how their body looks now that they have implants installed; this is another reason why it’s helpful knowing what kind of results are possible before going through with an MA procedure using silicone gel filled saline expanders because these types of surgeries tend not only available options but also require less recovery time than alternatives such as those involving liquid silicone gel filled expanders used during Breast Augmentation Surgery procedures.”

Your breasts might not look exactly how you want.. yet.

You might have expected that your breasts would look exactly how you wanted them to look right after surgery, but it’s going to take a few months for your results to be final. Your body will continue to heal and change over time, and while the changes are subtle they’ll still be there.

Your breasts won’t necessarily be AS big as they were before surgery (although some people find that their size increases slightly).

They also won’t necessarily look exactly like the other person’s breasts in the pre-surgery photos on this website or anywhere else because everyone is different! Two people can have similar sized implants and one person’s anatomy will hold an implant better than another person’s anatomy because their tissue is thicker or thinner, their skin is more elastic or less elastic etc…

Your new breast implants may also feel different than you expected at first: fullness of shape & softness of contour varies from patient-to-patient; it takes time for swelling & bruising to subside so don’t panic if they don’t feel perfect immediately following surgery.

You may have some pain.

Pain is a normal part of the healing process after surgery. This pain should be mild and limited to your breasts, not constant or severe. Pain medications can be helpful in controlling moderate to severe post-operative pain

Some swelling and lumpiness is normal.

This is normal and you should be able to tell the difference between your implants and the swelling. Your implants will soften over time but not as quickly as the tissue around them does. The more you use your muscles, the quicker this process occurs.

You should start seeing some improvement within about 2 weeks after surgery but it may take up to 3 months for the swelling to go down enough for you to see “the new you.”

You may have some numbness around the incision sites that lasts for months or even a year or two.

It’s totally normal to have numbness around the incision sites. This is called paresthesia and it can last up to a year or two. If you’re still experiencing this sensation after six months, you should contact your doctor immediately because it could be due to scar tissue.

The scars may be raised, red, itchy, and/or bumpy.

You may be concerned if your scars are raised, red, itchy, or bumpy. This is normal and part of the healing process. Scars may look different at different times—they will change color as they heal, sometimes becoming discolored or dark in color due to excess blood being close to the surface of your skin. This can make them look darker than normal for a short time before returning back to their original color (usually).

Scars will also appear raised because the tissue around a scar is weaker than normal skin and cannot stretch normally when you move around or flex your arms in certain ways. These characteristics are temporary; scars usually flatten out over time as they heal. Some scars take longer than others because they’re located in areas where there isn’t much natural collagen production (like between fingers or toes) so you must allow extra time before judging how long any particular scar will remain elevated above its surrounding area

Sleeping is still tricky!

If you’ve read my previous posts, you know that I slept propped up in a recliner for the first two weeks after my surgery. The first week was excruciatingly painful, but then it got a little better and I was able to sleep on my back and stomach. Now that it has been over two months since the surgery, sleeping on my back or stomach is still uncomfortable. However, lying flat on your side is much more comfortable than before!

If possible, try to find something soft and cozy to sleep in at night until your body heals more completely—this will help with any pain as well as making sure you get good restful sleep!

Clothing shopping is weird.

You will have to buy new bras. Your breasts will be much larger than they were before, so you’ll need to buy a larger band size and adjust the cup size accordingly. This can be a bit confusing because bras usually come in different sizes depending on what brand you’re buying and where you’re buying it from. The main thing to remember is that your band should always fit comfortably snugly, but not tight enough that it cuts off circulation or causes pain or discomfort.

If your surgeon uses sutures instead of implants (which is becoming more common), then this process may take longer for your breasts to settle into place fully—this could mean several months before all the swelling goes down completely!

There are very few complications associated with breast augmentation at 10 weeks post op! Congrats!

You’re almost done! In most cases, the most common complications at 10 weeks post op are infection, bleeding and capsular contracture. Capsular contracture is a condition where scar tissue around the implant hardens, causing your breasts to feel tight and painful. If this happens to you, don’t worry too much—it’s not permanent and can be fixed with medication or surgery. However if it does happen to you there’s no need for concern as it is completely treatable with either medication or surgery.

The good news is that most women don’t experience any of these problems after breast augmentation surgery!
