Weight gain and constipation after breast augmentation.
WEIGHT GAIN – After surgery you will be less active than normal – burning less calories. You will be at home more and likely eating more than usual – consuming more calories. Therefore, it is very easy and common to gain weight in the early stages after breast augmentation surgery. At a time when you should be feeling happy and have a boost of confidence, you can easily be a little upset over weight gain. So now that you know this, do your best to avoid it.
CONSTIPATION – Constipation is an unpleasant possible issue in the first week or two after breast augmentation surgery. This is typically caused by the pain killers used during and after surgery which cause constipation and bloating. Also, being less mobile after surgery exacerbates this. Have plenty of fluids and fibre, and take additional products to help keep you regular, such as Metamucil.
