If you feel like your breasts look too small, have an undesirable shape, or do not look symmetrical, you can feel self-conscious. Breast augmentations are among the most popular types of cosmetic surgery. However, they do have some recovery time, so if planning your breast augmentation, take your vacation plans into account.
What is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation uses saline or silicone implants to increase breast size and volume. Dr. Sozer, a board-certified plastic surgeon, performs over 400 breast augmentation procedures every year. You can have breast augmentation alone, but you may also have a breast lift if you have noticeable sagging. Breast augmentation can help your figure look more balanced and proportionate while enhancing your bustline and helping you look better in almost any type of clothing.
How Do You Choose Implants for Breast Augmentation?
We want you to love your breast implants, so we help you understand what the implants you choose might look like. We use Vectra 3D imaging technology to let you see the results you can expect with different implant types and sizes. Implants can add volume to different parts of the breast. Dr. Sozer will work with you to determine what your ideal breasts would look and feel like so you can have the best implants to meet your goals.
When Can You Swim Again After Breast Augmentation?
Swimming too soon after surgery puts you at risk of infection or other complications. Always follow your surgeon’s instructions. Most surgeons will recommend that you wait at least a month after your procedure before swimming. Keep in mind that a month after your surgery, your breasts will sit higher on your chest than they will when they settle in a few months later.
Most people can go back to work about a week after their procedure. If you have a physically demanding job, you may have to wait longer. You can resume light activities after three to four weeks and most normal activities after three months. Residual swelling can take several months to resolve completely.
What are the Benefits of Breast Augmentation?
What makes breast augmentation so popular? This procedure has many benefits beyond size enhancement.

Improvements in breast augmentation techniques have made a recovery so short that you can be at the beach, enjoying a new bikini top, in as little as a month.
Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation?
You may be a good candidate for breast augmentation if you have no serious health problems and reasonable expectations. Breast augmentation may not be suitable for you if you have certain medical conditions that would make surgery riskier for you.
