After surgery, you will be wearing a supportive surgical bra, mostly for comfort. Most women experience minimal bruising and swelling from breast augmentation. Since the implant is behind the muscle, there is a transition time where patients are uncomfortable until their muscles stretch and accommodate the implants. As a leading Dallas plastic surgeon, my technique for all breast augmentation procedures involves precise electro-cautery dissection of the implant pocket with no blunt dissection. This minimizes bleeding, and therefore, postoperative swelling and bruising, and most importantly, postoperative pain.
