Recovery Times for Breast Augmentation

Also serving Hollywood, Santa Monica and Los Angeles area patients

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT: So, how long does it take to recover from a breast augmentation?

Every patient is a unique individual, and therefore, every recovery is unique. However, a majority of my patients by the end of the week say that the majority of their pain has subsided.

I like to have my patients up and walking the night of surgery, and I encourage them to use their arms to prevent stiffness. I find that, by the end of four weeks, the vast majority of my patients can resume most normal exercise activity. Between two weeks and four weeks is a gradual progression as the patient feels comfortable.

I like to follow my patients regularly in the first month in order to assess her progress, level of comfort, and to discuss concepts such as long-term breast implant massage in an effort to maintain softness and subsequent scar care.

If you are interested in breast augmentation, it would be my privilege to see you to discuss with you the nature of the surgery, and to answer any questions you may have.

I'm Dr. Jay Orringer. Please feel free to contact us at 310-273-1663 or visit our website at
