Although most women don’t experience any major complications during their recovery from their breast augmentation, there are steps you need to take to reduce your risk of experiencing one.

During the recovery from your breast augmentation, you will need to make sure that you do not get the incisions wet while they heal. You will need to wait about 36 hours before you can shower again. You must also avoid pools, hot tubs, and baths for a period of around three to six weeks.

Plastic surgeon Dr. Michelle Hardaway will provide you with a thorough list of post-operative instructions after your breast augmentation. Following these instructions will help to ensure your health and safety during your recovery.
