Yes. but...: It is very possible that you will be asked to undergo additional screening measures; if these measures will not be a source of concern/embarrassment, keep the sizers in place. Otherwise, consider removing the sizers before you get to the airport. ...Read more

How long do you wear the band after breast augmentation?

How long do you wear the band after breast augmentation?

Varies greatly: This depends on the exact procedure and your anatomy as well as the postoperative appearance. A small implant in a woman with pseudo ptosis may require no band at all due to the large skin envelope whereas a larger implant in a constricted breast may wear a band for up ton6 weeks with great variation in surgeons preferences along the spectrum of these two polar opposites. ...Read more

How soon can I wear a bathing suit after breast augmentation?

A few days: Short answer: whenever it is comfortable. The incisions will seal in 48 hours so you can get them wet after that. I usually advise my patients not to wear underwire bras for 2-3 weeks because they are not comfortable, but other than that, you can wear a swimsuit whenever it is comfortable after augmentation. ...Read more

How quickly can you wear a bathing suit after breast augmentation?

Wear or share?: You could conceivably wear a bathing suit in recovery but i presume that is not what you really mean which i believe is to share the benefits of your procedure, swim and tan, etc. Those are several other issues and may vary from 1 week to several weeks and are effected by implant pocket, size, lift, constriction, asymmetry, incisions, bathing suit design, skin tension, complexion, muscle release, . ...Read more

Cleavage: Cleavage is created by a good bra, not by the breasts or the implants. If you had a prominently wide sternum (breastbone) before augmentation, you will always have a wide gap. If your implants fall into your axilla (armpit) when you lye down, then you might consider capsulorrhaphy to bring the implants closer together. http://www.dassmd.com/breast-enhancements/breast-implant-revision-los-angeles. ...Read more
