Would you recommend Day Surgery or Overnight stay for a BA


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I have just booked my surgery for breast implants!  Very excited but nervous too...

I will be having under muscle anatomicals and wondered if most people had the procedure done in Day Surgery or had an Overnight stay in the hospital.  

What was your recovery like and where you happy with your choice?

Hey @Kit most of us have day surgery, I did. I also have under muscle anatomicals and I was fine to go home a couple of hours after surgery. My recovery was straightforward and relatively easy. Some struggle more than others, so it's hard to say how you'll go. Just have your home ready for your return, someone to help with meals and other things around the home. They usually give you fairly strong painkillers after the surgery, but I only took them on the first day, then panadol for the next couple of days, then I didn't need anything.
My skin felt tight and uncomfortable, but my new boobs settled down well. The worst for me was sleeping upright and on my back, I found that really uncomfortable and I hate sleeping on my back. 

Oh and yes absolutely happy with my choice :) Good luck with your surgery, keep us posted!!

I had day surgery, went in first thing in the morning and home by lunch time so was able to relax in my own home while kids were at school, i have older kids so they catch the bus and i had hubby for the first 3 days to help out with the household chores. But If i had to do it all again i still choose day surgery i prefer to recover in my on home but if i had small children then maybe i might stay the night so i could at leadt get a good night's rest. 

On the day of surgery you will be given a script for your pain meds , i personally wasn't in any pain until the next day and even then it wasn't pain just stiffness,  the first week will be the hardest as you will feel tight , stiff a pressure feeling and your new implants will feel heavey on your chest but know all this is temporary and will pass in a couple of weeks,  i was able to drive by 7-10 days post op and was able to use my arms for almost everything i will say if you have long hair have it washed the day before surgery and have it braided as you may not be able to wash it for the first week. 

I have 440cc hp anatomical dual plane  (partial unders ) and yes I'm happy with the size but like most sometimes wish I'd gon a little bigger ?

Day surgery but I needed my husband to help me with everything in the first 3 days  - bathing, going to the toilet etc. I have had laparoscopies etc and my body does not cope with anaesthetic. I had under the muscle and even though the painkillers helped, I still was very uncomfortable. On the 5th day, I really turned a corner and began to feel human again.

Thank you everyone and that is very interesting to hear.  I didn’t realise day surgery was so popular for augmentations.  For some reason it makes me very anxious even though I have had other day surgery procedures (medical reasons) before.

I have decided that an overnight stay will be best for me and not so much pressure on my husband with the kids.

Sounds like the best decision for you. Best wishes for your surgery and recovery and keep us posted :)
