Sleeping on Side after BA

Sleeping on Side after BA

Postby Newmie » Thu Jun 15, 2006 9:40 am

Hello Ladies,

To any of you that have had breast augmentation, can you lay on your side right after surgery or is that too uncomfortable?

After the first couple of weeks many of us try when we are more comfy. I had to use a small pillow clutched to my chest to be able to sleep and still use it.

Hi Miki,

Thank you for your response.

That's very interesting....you didn't feel comfortable sleeping on your side until a few weeks after? Did you just sleep face up until you were comfortable enough to move?

The reason that I asked is because I was planning on having both breast and buttock implants and my doctor said that I could have them both done at the same time because I could lay on my side.

To me that sounded very uncomfortable so I wanted to ask someone that's had BA.

Thanks Ladies,

I don't know what the heck some doctors think! It sounds like I should NOT do both at the same time...

Just wondering, what type of implants did you ladies have? I'm doing my research now and i'm wondering the difference between saline and soft cohesive sillicon gel in terms of feel.

I had lipo too but I can tell you that you'll want to be in a semi-reclining position for sleep the first 7-10 days on your back...I'd save the butt for another day

Took me 4 weeks to lay on my side and stay that way to sleep...

I have been curious as to how one would sleep if they had breast and butt implants...

Are you going to have them both done at the same time???

Keep us posted on how things are going for you...

Take care,
Lezza :)

I too still use a small pillow to cuddle with up against my breast... It just makes them feel better, and I have thought this might be the reason the feel so soft, b/c in the mornings my breast are at their best soft wise...

I think I have formed a new habit doing this, and I don't see me breaking it either... Just like I have to have a floor fan running to sleep it's the ever so slight hum that puts me out like a baby...

No way you can sleep on your side immediately after BA !

I just started sleeping on my side, waking up every 2 hours to change side at 3 weeks post op!
This is after I had taken a strong painkiller before I sleep.
If I don't take the painkiller, I absolutely cannot sleep at my side, even now at 3 weeks po.

Like what Miki said, save the butt lift for another day.

I was in the recliner for 3 weeks, then I eased back into side sleeping. At first I wore a tight bra with a sock rolled in my clevage to keep my boobs from moving at all. I also clutched a pillow to them. The less they moved the better. Now at a little over a month I can sleep however I want and with no bra. I'm glad all that's over with. I'd say save the butt for another day. I can't imagine how you could even move with all that done at once, although I know lots of girls here have had lipo and tt's and other stuff done at the same time. I'm too much of a wuss.
