Are you considering getting a cosmetic surgery procedure for breast augmentation in Dubai? You must be looking out for the possible phases you should go through before and during the treatment. But, did you know that the post op phase is of much greater importance? Yes, it is. You might be wondering how. Well, every surgical procedure needs sometime of healing, so that the real outcome can come into appearance.

The post op phase is important in many ways as it also includes the recovery process. There are several aspects that need you to know what you should expect after the treatment. Each patient has different experience, because each person goes through different technique and procedure for the surgery. Every person has different case to handle. So, the recovery phase is different for everyone.

Here is what you should expect during the recovery phase:

First Week

If there is an augmentation procedure with breasts implants, then in the first week the breasts are still tight and nipples still appear low. You may feel the bust bone swelled and see the markings of sutures. These sutures fade away in few days. Itching and sore can felt, that also goes away with time. You have no need to worry, just pay attention to your recovery and be patient all the way. At the end of week, you can start a light walk, but do not move the upper body abruptly.

Third Week

When you enter the third week after surgery, you may feel your implants slightly compressed. Your breast may seem firm but not as tight as they should be. Just wait and observe. There will be rounding on the sides that may not seem as prominent at that time. The bruises go away in few more days and the natural; symmetry of breasts begins to adjust. You will be called for monitoring to trace the progress of your recovery.

The Sixth Week

The breasts start to soften and begin to look more attractive. You can feel the visible difference in the appearance and the round side also begins to get prominent. The incisions are completely closed by then. If you want to wash, then first consult your surgeon.

Week Eight

By the coming of week eight, your breasts will start looking better and feel softer, while the nipples will seem at a good position. Your breasts will look more symmetrical, whereas your bra management will be analyzed at each appointment. Now, a little heavier activity may be allowed to you. Now, you can move your upper body slowly. You can also start a light workout too. Keep on wearing the supportive bra.

Six Months

When the 6 months have been passed, your breast will be at optimal position by then. The will seem natural and soft. If you are into high impact sport, you might still have to wear the sport bra.

Your recovery timeline can vary from all this according to the nature of treatment you got. But this information will surely help you before making a strong decision about undergoing a treatment for breast augmentation in Dubai.
