Can I Drive Home After My Breast Augmentation?

January 22, 2014

Welcome back to our Real Life Recovery series. In our second installment, we’re addressing a commonly asked question about our most popular procedure at LJCSC: breast augmentation. You’ve decided to take the plunge and have breast augmentation. No doubt you’re excited about enjoying life with your new look! But before you schedule that marathon day of shopping with the “girls,” you need to concentrate on your recovery first. This means preparing for several days of rest and relaxation, including plenty of fun magazines, a few good movies, and someone to be your after-augmentation designated driver. Because breast augmentation is done using general anesthesia, driving home after surgery is off-limits. You cannot take a taxi, either. While you will be awake, you will feel a little “out of it” or unsteady on your feet for the rest of the day as anesthesia continues to wear off. You need to have a trusted adult take you home from the surgery center and help you get situated.
