Time Your Breast Augmentation Surgery Just Right!
If you are planning a wedding, vacation, to lose weight, or get pregnant, timing is key when you are considering to get arguably one of the best breast augmentation Phoenix has to offer by Dr. Albert Andres.
If you are planning on having or being in a wedding, it would be wise to give your self approximatly 8-10 weeks after a breast procedure to be fitted for a gown or dress. This will allow full recovery from the procedure and let the breast implants fully settle in.
After about 3-4 weeks after a breast augmentation surgery, one can go in a swimming pool, Jacuzzi, lake or ocean. The incision that was used during a breast augmentation procedure will be healed enough, water won’t be able to get in it and you will be safe from infection.
One can also tan as early as 3-4 weeks after a breast augmentation surgery. UV light, whether it is from a tanning bed or the natural sun, will cause a scar to be more red for a longer period of time. It is highly recommended that you protect your incision scar with a high sun protection factor (SPF) sunblock.
After 8-10 weeks, you will have a more accurate measurement of your breast and can start to buy new bras and swim attire to better fit your new breasts.
Pregnancy & Breastfeeding
It is best to wait after the delivery and breast feeding of a child to obtain a breast augmentation. It is very common for post-pregnancy breast to have a different look than the ones you are used to having. During pregnancy, breast will enlarge from hormones and breast milk production. From this stress, often time they become saggy, become smaller/bigger. It is best to wait 5 to 6 months after pregnancy to ensure you obtain the results you want.
Losing weight not only decreases the size of your thighs and waist, but can also affect your breast! This is because one of the main tissues that make up the breast is adipose (FAT). It is recommended that one perform their diet fully to the ideal body weight before pursuing a breast augmentation. You want to ensure you obtain the breast implant size that fits you, and will only fit perfectly if you are at your ideal weight.
