Recovery from breast augmentation normally comes very quickly. In most cases you’ll be able to return to your normal activities within 48 hours. In some cases the plastic surgeon may advise the patient to take a slightly longer recovery period of up to a week but this is more rare.

Q. What’s the difference between augmentation and implants?
These terms refer to the same concept. Technically, the term breast augmentation refers to the actual procedure whereas the term breast implant refers to the inserts that are placed inside of the breast to augment it.
Q. What’s a breast lift?
The breast lift (also called mastopexy) is a simple surgical procedure where the nipple is positioned higher on the body than where it was originally located on the patient. It’s a relatively simple procedure and should not take more than a few hours. The breast lift can help you achieve more youthful appearing breasts.
