How should I sleep with breast implants?

For the first week or so, you should sleep in an upright, semi-sitting position, with your upper back and head elevated. This is to help with the healing of the breast pocket: fluid will build up in your breast, and by sitting in an elevated position this allows it to drain naturally. If it does not drain naturally, this can cause a complication called a seroma. Some patients find that V-shaped pillow helps them rest comfortably. After the first week the pain and discomfort in your chest should have gone down and you may feel comfortable sleeping on your side, but should still avoid sleeping on your front for a few more weeks. You should also wear a supportive bra with no underwiring, such as a sports bra, for around six weeks after the procedure, and this includes at night, to give your breasts the support they need whilst they heal.
