What are the best sleeping positions after breast augmentation?

You will sleep on your back for at least 12 weeks after surgery. For the first few weeks, sleeping at a 30-45 degree angle can prevent tossing and turning and reduce swelling. It is very important to wear a supportive bra at night and not sleep on your side or stomach during the healing phase. If you do choose to try side or stomach sleeping after 12 weeks, you MUST wear a bra, and take standardized photos of you cleavage every 5 days, as the pressure of your body weight will tend to push your implants into your armpits! If you notice your cleavage or implant position changing immediately stop sleeping on side or stomach and return to back sleeping. Side or stomach sleeping in the first 12 weeks voids your revision policy.
