How to reduce swelling after breast augmentation?

Swelling / oedema is a normal side effect after breast augmentation. It appears in the chest area and may reach lower parts too – especially abdomen. Breast swelling subsides over time, yet it is quite uncomfortable, no wonder women look for the methods of reducing it faster. Swelling after breast enlargement can be reduced thanks to:


  • wearing recovery bra as instructed by the surgeon;
  • applying cold compress on the swollen areas;
  • drinking much water (keeping high hydration level) and following healthy diet;
  • walking, but avoiding strenuous exercising;
  • take some herbs, e.g. arnica supplements, yet it must be discussed with a surgeon.
