Pain Following Breast Augmentation


The simple truth is this: your Phoenix breast augmentation procedure will result in some pain. Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure in which tissue and/or muscle are manipulated, a process that will, inevitably, result in discomfort.

Board-certified Phoenix breast augmentation surgeon Dr. John Corey will do whatever possible to help you deal with your pain, but you should not expect to walk away from your surgery without at least some discomfort.

Dealing with Postoperative Discomfort

Dr. Corey believes you should be as comfortable as possible following your breast augmentation procedure. He will prescribe strong and effective pain medications to help you deal with the tenderness and discomfort that will be present within the first few days. For most of our patients, discomfort is only an issue for two to three days, but your body is unique and Dr. Corey will prescribe medication as needed to ensure your comfort.

There is no way to avoid the presence of pain when you have a surgical procedure. There are however ways to reduce the impact pain has on your body. Dr. Corey will be happy to discuss this with you before your breast augmentation procedure to help make sure your recovery is as painless as possible.
