When Is the Best Time For Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a far more complex procedure than other cosmetic enhancements, and as such it requires extra planning and strategic timing. This quick guide can help you determine how to schedule your breast augmentation so that it does not conflict with other important events on your calendar.

If You Want to Take a Beach Vacation

This is why it’s so important to plan your augmentation surgery to provide plenty of time to recover before you head to the beach. After surgery, your incisions will need about three weeks to heal to the point that water can’t penetrate and cause an infection. You will also want that much time to recover physically and regain your energy. Also remember the UV light is a major consideration with your scars, so protect them with SPF 30.

It’s also important to remember that you will need to purchase new bras, swimsuits, and tank tops once your breast augmentation is complete. Since most women feel that their breasts don’t “set” until about eight weeks after surgery, you may struggle to purchase new clothes that legitimately fit until that time. Overall, it is ideal to wait about two to three months after your augmentation to enjoy the water and sand.

Preparing For Pregnancy and Breastfeeding

If you want a breast augmentation tampa, but want to have children in the near future, you might want to wait until after your baby is born to undergo surgery. Pregnancy and breastfeeding will definitely change the appearance of your breasts, and you may have different needs once your child is born. For example, before pregnancy and breastfeeding you might only think you need an augmentation, but afterward you might opt for a combined augmentation and breast lift to regain the perkiness you have lost.

Wedding Bells Are Ringing

What better gift to give yourself as a bride than breast implants? Just be sure to schedule your surgery well in advance of your wedding! Experts recommend undergoing your breast augmentation about one year before the Big Day. That will give your new chest enough time to settle in before you need to go dress shopping. It’s important that your dress is ordered with the correct measurements to fit your body, so you don’t want to go until you know that your implants have embraced their true postoperative shape and size.

Of course, don’t make any final decisions until you seek the advice of an experienced plastic surgeon who can guide you in the right direction.
