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

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

I did breast augmentation one year ago, they are away from each other, is there a special bra that help to makr them closer or i need to redone?

I did breast augmentation one year ago, they are away from each other, is there a special bra that help to makr them  closer or i need to redone?

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
