Recovery from breast augmentation will require a few weeks of time. On the day of your surgery, you will be released to return home. You will wear a bandage and wrap or sports bra home. You will need a friend or relative to drive you home and stay with you for the first 24 to 48 hours. If you have small children, you will need to arrange for someone to care for them during your first few days of recovery. You will not be able to lift them.
