FAQ: Is Breast Augmentation Painful?

Answer:Since the surgery is under general anesthesia, there is no pain during the procedure.

The greatest period of discomfort for the patient is usually the first twenty-four to forty-eight hours after breast augmentation surgery. Afterward, pains will reduce and there will be no need for too many pain relievers as usual. We do a 24-hour recovery routine that which most patients have very little discomfort after 24 hours. In the case where breast implants are placed in the submuscular position, they will initially cause more discomfort than when it is placed in the subglandular pocket ( in front of the muscle).
