When can I drink alcohol after breast augmentation?

Featured Image

It is generally recommended that you wait at least 24-48 hours after breast augmentation surgery before consuming any alcohol. However, it is important to follow your plastic surgeon's specific post-operative instructions and recommendations, as they may vary depending on the individual case and surgical technique used.

Alcohol consumption can interfere with the healing process and may increase the risk of complications such as bleeding, swelling, and infection. Additionally, alcohol can impair judgment and coordination, which could lead to accidental injury during the recovery period.

Therefore, it is important to avoid alcohol and any other substances that may affect your recovery until your plastic surgeon gives you clearance to resume normal activities. This will help ensure a safe and successful recovery from your breast augmentation surgery.
