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 5 more doctor answers

NO: Breast augmentation will not prevent you from becoming pregnant or giving birth. The ability to breast feed is not always an easy task, even in the unoperated woman. Breast augmentation will not permanently interrupt milk ducts, however there is a 3 to 5% chance of decreased nipple sensation after augmentation. This could theoretically make breast feeding more difficult. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
