Is a compression bra always recommended during sports for those who had a breast augmentation with implants? I am considering breast augmentation with implants, is there a type that is recommended for someone who spends a lot of sports year-round running
Generally : Generally after breast augmentation, we ask patients to refrain from excessive exercise for a period of two weeks. After this you are able to return to most activities as long as they are not causing you pain. It is important not to mask pain at this point with pain medications but rather listen to your body as it tells you what it can and cannot do during the recover process. After two or three months your result should be fairly stable. We generally tell our patients to go out and enjoy themselves and live their lives to the fullest, after all, breast implants are supposed to make your life better, not confine you to living in a bubble forever. That being said, just as women with larger natural breasts benefit from support during vigorous, high impact activities, you may now find your self pleasantly surprised to be in the same situation. The short answer is listen to your body. If you find your neck, back, or breast strained by certain activities, then you should use a well fitted sports bra for those activities. Make sure it fits your new breasts properly without distorting them and never be afraid to ask your surgeon to double check the fit if you have any questions. Hope that helps! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Be Safe: It would be best to be geographically close to your plastic surgeon for a minimum of two weeks following breast augmentation. If a problem should arise, you would want to be able to obtain treatment quickly from the surgeon who treated you as opposed to someone in a different state who doesn't know exactly what was done and how. Be conservative, especially with this investment in your health. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
