Q&A: Pain After Breast Implant Surgery?

“I either read horror stories with some people’s experience post operation or I read stories about woman who experience a bit discomfort , able to eat a nice meal day of surgery and feel pretty great the next day. Why different stories? Does it depend on the person, doctor, size of implant or the health of the individual? Thank you.”, a RealSelf user asked.

“Most patients do very well after breast augmentation with minimal discomfort. I use Exparel which is a long lasting local anesthetic in the area to minimize the pain in the first 24-48h after surgery. Very rarely patients complain of pain after the first three days. Meticulous dissection and placement on implant during surgery will indeed help with pain after surgery as well. Breast of luck.”, Aristocrat’s certified surgeon Dr. Kevin Tehrani, M.D., F.A.C.S explained.
