You will need help for 2 to 3 days. Its hard to get up from bed after surgery. You won't be able to open bottles or lift pans on the first few days so you'll need someone to help you with that too. The pain is not bad because you will be on pain medication. You will not be able to lift your baby for at least 14 days. You should be able to hold her on your lap without a problem after a few days but not to lift her.
I had help from 2 people. My aunt would bring me breakfast in the morning and she also opened all my water and juice bottles and get my snacks before leaving the house to go to work. I also had my boyfriend helping me in the afternoon. He would help me get up from bed, take showers, brush my hair, etc. I did not feel pain because I was on Vicodin but I was not feeling 100%.
Good Luck with your breast augmentation.

2 to 3 days???? Not on my watch! I was in massive pain (can't sit up,can't stay comfortable lying down) for almost a full week. I was on serious painkillers, and still was in pain.
You will definitely need help caring for your child. Do not even think about lifting him or her!
