It’s finally time for your fantastic Breast Augmentation journey. You think you are totally prepared for your surgical ‘trip’, but are you really? The voyage to bigger breasts means more than surgery; it also includes being stranded on your Tempur-Pedic for several days. To ensure smooth sailing, be sure to pack (and plan) accordingly:
1.Set the mood.
Better healing occurs in a serene environment. Get ready by emptying the laundry-hamper, sweep, wash the dishes, and change your sheets.
2.Stock up on supplies.
Helpful basics include Chapstick, bottled water, and baby wipes (perfect for ‘freshening up’ until you can get back in the shower).
3.Plump the pillows.
Since you are going to be parked on your bed, at least make it be comfortable. During those first few days, extra pillows can prop you up and even keep you from rolling over.
4.Time out for kids and pets.
We know you love your babies (both human and furry) but picking these guys up after a Breast Augmentation is a no-no.
5.Go grocery shopping.
Even Wonder Woman didn’t feel like cooking immediately after her Breast Augmentation. Purchase easy to fix foods, or freeze pre-cooked meals, so the stress of chow-time will be eliminated.
Being stuck in bed, and taking pain medications, can lead to uncomfortable constipation. Drink lots of water. Also have grape/prune juice on hand, as well as a stool softener.
7.Keep it cool.
Icepacks can decrease swelling and pain. Have four gel icepacks on hand, one for each bosom-buddy, and a pair in the freezer to rotate. To protect your skin, remember: 20 minutes on, 20 minutes off.
8.Opt for zippers.
Pulling a shirt over your head will be impossible at first. Have some button-down shirts or a zippered sweat suit to wear during recovery.
9.Place a small trashcan in your car and by your bed.
Anesthesia and pain medications can cause nausea, so keep a ‘barf-bucket’ close by.
10.Gather ‘junk-food’ for your brain.
Some juicy reading material can help pass the long hours of recovery. Why not use this an excuse to catch up on 50 Shades of Grey?
