Preparing for breast augmentation can be an exhilarating experience. After you have already scheduled your surgery and are counting down the hours to the big day, you are probably wondering how best to prepare yourself. Here are a few tips to keep you on the right track:
1. Get Your Living Space in Order
With all the chores piling up, you may assume there will be plenty of time to sort it all out after the surgery. After the surgery you will be home but as recommended you will be on a strict rest regime for a while. Prepare your home so that you will feel relaxed after your operation.
2. Prepare Your Rest Areas
For the post-operation duration, you will need a lot of pillows and cushions to rest on while on the couch or in bed. Invest in good quality fluffy pillows and cushions to support your body as you rest.
3. Take the Recommended Supplements
Your doctor may recommend supplements to aid the healing process before and after your breast augmentation procedure. Ensure you are aware of the dosages and stock up on enough to last you over the recovery period. If you take blood-thinning medication, take a break for at least two weeks before the surgery.
4. Stock Up on Healthy Foods
After your breast augmentation surgery, you will need to rest and restrict movement, so prepare large batches of healthy meals that you enjoy and freeze them. They should be adequate to last you over the recovery period.
5. Get a Helping Hand
Immediately after the surgery, you will need adequate downtime. As such, ask your family to help out with the kids, pets, house chores, and weekly shopping. You may also need to postpone normal activities for several weeks or as advised by the doctor.
6. Plan Your Wardrobe
After your breast augmentation surgery, you may temporarily find it difficult to put on some of your favorite outfits. Carefully plan your wardrobe and prioritize comfort and ease of use. Include outfits with zips, loose-fitting tops, and button down shirts. The fabric should be breathable. Avoid wearing an underwire during the recovery period too.
