HI, I just went threw a breast lift and augmentation and I cant think of many things to avoid other than really following the doctors advice on what to lift and what not to. Ive had days where I felt really great, lifted something I shoudl not have, and then swelled up to a balloon at night. Good luck with this, its wel worth it and belive it or not its not painful. Drink a ton of water, and dont wear anything too tight, youllnotice everything is so sensitive. Good LUCK! Ice is a great thing to help with swelling!
