With the rising popularity of breast implant surgery, also known as breast augmentation, the need for fast, effective and reliable post-surgery recovery methods and therapies is in high demand.
At Wonderlab, we pride ourselves in helping our clients be the best version of themselves! In this article, we will be discussing the benefits of how Indiba Therapy helps breast implant patients with intermediate and post-surgery recovery by reducing swelling and pain. We also talk about how patients who progress to non-acute stages continue to accelerate tissue recovery and prevent implant encapsulation.
After the surgery, patients may experience pain, swelling, and discomfort, and recovery time can vary depending on the individual case. There are several post-operative methods that can aid in faster recovery, including tissue recovery. Below are some of the most common post breast implant surgery methods.
Did you know that breast implant surgery is the most common surgical procedure performed by plastic surgeons. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons published an article in 2021 talking about the trends from publicly available sources and summarised the prevalence of breast augmentation amongst different age groups.
|Age Group||Prevalence of Breast Augmentation Surgery||Top 3 Reasons for Breast Enhancement Surgery|
|18-24 years||2%||1. Increase breast size and improve body image 2. Correct breast asymmetry 3. Improve self-confidence|
|25-34 years||27%||1. Increase breast size and improve body image 2. Correct breast asymmetry 3. Improve self-confidence|
|35-50 years||50%||1. Restore breast volume lost due to pregnancy or weight loss 2. Improve breast shape and firmness 3. Increase breast size and improve body image|
|51+ years||21%||1. Improve breast shape and firmness 2. Restore breast volume lost due to aging 3. Increase breast size and improve body image|
Indiba is a radiofrequency therapy that has been used in the medical industry for many years. This non-invasive treatment is designed to promote healing, reduce inflammation and improve circulation in the treated area. Indiba works by using high-frequency electrical currents to generate heat in the tissues beneath the skin, which stimulates cell regeneration and enhances the healing process.
One of the most common side effects of breast enhancement surgery is pain and swelling. Indiba can help reduce these symptoms by increasing circulation in the treated area. The increased circulation helps to flush out the excess fluid that causes swelling and pain. The therapy also promotes the production of endorphins, which are natural painkillers that help reduce discomfort.One of the most common side effects of breast enhancement surgery is pain and swelling.

Collagen is a protein that plays a crucial role in skin health and elasticity. After breast enhancement surgery, collagen production is essential for proper healing and to avoid the formation of scar tissue. Indiba stimulates the production of collagen, which helps to improve skin elasticity, prevent scarring, and promote faster healing.
Indiba therapy also helps to improve circulation in the treated area. The increased blood flow delivers essential nutrients and oxygen to the tissues, which helps to promote healing and reduce inflammation. This improved circulation also helps to prevent the buildup of scar tissue, which can cause discomfort and interfere with the healing process.
Indiba can also help improve lymphatic drainage in the treated area. The lymphatic system is responsible for removing waste and excess fluids from the body. After breast enhancement surgery, the lymphatic system may become overwhelmed, leading to a buildup of fluids and increased swelling. Indiba can help enhance lymphatic drainage, which helps to reduce swelling and promote healing.
Indiba therapy is a non-invasive treatment that does not require any incisions or anesthesia. The therapy is painless and does not cause any discomfort. Patients can relax during the treatment and experience a soothing warmth in the treated area.
With the high number of breast implant surgeries performed daily, we now have a wealth of information that provide a good indication of what can go wrong post-surgery, and more importantly, how likely a procedure is going to go pear shaped!
We’ve also summarised our homework on the topic in the table below. We also showcase how Indiba Therapy helps aid in post-surgical recovery and problem reduction.
|Most Common Complications||How Indiba Therapy Can Help With Recovery from Breast Implant Surgery.|
|Infection (1-5%)||- Improve circulation and boost the immune system to reduce the risk of infection and promote faster healing of infected tissues.|
|Capsular contracture. This is also known as implant encapsulation. (5-10%)||- Soften the scar tissue around the implant, reducing the risk of capsular contracture and improving breast shape and/or pain.|
|Implant rupture (1-2%)||- Not applicable. Indiba therapy cannot repair an implant rupture.|
|Hematoma/Seroma (1-5%)||- Improve lymphatic drainage, reducing the risk of fluid build-up and the formation of hematomas and seromas.|
|Breast asymmetry (5-10%)||- Improve blood flow and promote tissue regeneration, which may improve the healing process and reduce the risk of asymmetry.|

Knowing that these complications are generally rare, we gain more comfort that there are good self-care methods and therapies that are available to reduce these events, and if required, aid in recovery
After the surgery, patients may experience pain, swelling, and discomfort, and recovery time can vary depending on the individual case. There are several post-operative methods that can aid in faster recovery, including tissue recovery. Below are some of the most common post breast implant surgery methods:
Getting enough rest and sleep is crucial for the body to recover after surgery. Patients should avoid strenuous activities, heavy lifting, and bending over for at least a few weeks after the surgery. Sleeping in an elevated position, such as with pillows, can also help reduce swelling and promote healing.
Pain management is an essential part of post-operative care. Patients may be prescribed pain medication to manage their discomfort. It's important to follow the dosage and timing instructions provided by the surgeon to avoid any adverse effects.
Compression garments, such as a surgical bra or sports bra, can help reduce swelling and provide support to the breasts. These garments also help to reduce movement, which can be uncomfortable after surgery.
Eating a healthy and balanced diet is crucial for tissue recovery after surgery. Patients should focus on eating nutrient-rich foods such as lean proteins, fruits, and vegetables to promote healing and reduce the risk of infection.
Gentle exercise, such as walking or light stretching, can help promote circulation and reduce the risk of blood clots. However, patients should avoid any strenuous exercise until cleared by their surgeon.
Post-operative massages can help reduce swelling and promote healing. Massages should be performed by a licensed therapist who is experienced in post-surgical massage techniques.
Indiba therapy can help accelerate post-surgical recovery by reducing pain and swelling, stimulating collagen production, improving circulation, and enhancing lymphatic drainage.
It's essential to note that each patient's recovery process may vary, and the post-operative care plan should be tailored to their individual case. It's crucial to follow the instructions provided by the surgeon and to attend all post-operative follow-up appointments to ensure a safe and successful recovery.
