When Can You Swim Again After Breast Augmentation?
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 makes breast augmentation so popular? This procedure has many benefits beyond size enhancement.
Correct asymmetrical breasts
Restore volume lost after pregnancy
Make clothes shopping more enjoyable
Natural-looking, long-lasting implants
High patient satisfaction ratings
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.
I had breast augmentation done in November, it’s been 3 months, and I am loving the results. Dr. Sozer did an amazing job and the staff was very friendly.
My experience with Dr. Sozer and his staff was outstanding!! I had bariatric surgery 18 months ago and lost a total of 126 lbs. I was wanting to remove excess skin and lift areas of my body that had gone south. I was very unhappy with the way I was looking. I explained my needs and wants to Dr. Sozer and he understood what I was wanting. Dr. Sozer took the time to explain the entire process.
Dr. Sozer is incredible at listening to your goals and giving you great recommendations on how to best get you there. In addition, he is an expert surgeon who can follow through with the recommendations and give you beautiful, natural results. I couldn't ask for a better doctor.
Dr. Sozer managed to give me back the self-image that I had after a botched abdominal surgery that had left me with craters and scars. His talent and artistry took me from a condition where I was embarrassed to remove my shirt, to the best I have ever looked. In fact, I went back shortly after for a procedure on my chest, which completed the look I have always wanted! I will always go back to El Paso Cosmetic Surgery for any future aesthetic procedure.
My experience with Dr. Sozer was great throughout the whole process. During my initial consultation, he explained my pre-op and post-op procedures in great detail. I particularly enjoyed the high tech imaging where I was able to see the type of outcome I would achieve with my surgery. I work in the health care industry and was really pleased with the level of service his staff provided. . At this point, I am currently at week 7 post-op, my recovery has been quicker than expected and I can perform normal activities with some caution.
Yo estoy super contenta y satisfecha con los servicios recibidos en El Paso Cosmetic Surgery. El Dr. Sozer es muy profesional, me dio muchísima confianza desde el principio y contesto todas mis dudas y preguntas. Todo su personal es muy amable, las chicas en recepción y las enfermeras muy serviciales. Absolutamente creo que es el mejor lugar para obtener una cirugía cosmética. Estoy super contenta con los resultados de mi Mommy Makeover y de otros tratamientos que obtuve en mi rostro, sobrepaso mis expectativas en todos los aspectos. Gracias a Dr. Sozer y a todo su personal por hacerme sentir una mamá mas joven y bella!!
