Doctor insights on:
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
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
It varies: It depends on the amount of swelling and pain you are experiencing. Most patients can feel comfortable in a week or two in their swim wear. ...Read more
How long should I wear an elastic band after breast augmentation surgery to help my implands drop?
3wks 24x7 then noc?:
I usually have my patients where this band for 3 weeks on a continual basis 24x7 and then switch to nightly wear for an additional 3 weeks if they remain high riding. I have an instructional video on youtube:

for these exercises as well as an app "placik protocol". ...Read more
What size implant is recommended for my a cup breast augmentation? I wear an a cup and want to balance out my larger hips with a larger chest. Should I try out different sizes so that I can decide if a c or d cup is going to be best for me? Do the doctors
Cup size is a measurements used for bras it is measured around your back and the widest part of your breasts usually the middle.
You can go to a department store and get sized but this will vary from 1 store to another. Surgeons use exact and precise volume measured in cc. Trying on different sizers is one of the best methods to get an idea of what volume you should get with a surgeons input. ...Read more
Yes: You will have positive self pride feelings as well as the obvious physical changes. You should be prepared to receive compliments and increased attention in your physical appearance for awhile. ...Read more
Have to? No... But.: If you are choosing to have breast augmentation because your breasts have "deflated" after child-bearing and breast feeding, AND there is a lot of drooping, it may be a good idea. Breast augmentation puts a saline or silicone filled balloon under your breast or muscle. If you have a lot of drooping, that balloon will droop down too!!! A mastopexy lifts the breast up to a more youthful position. ...Read more
Depends…: Seek consultation with board-certified plastic surgeons who can demonstrate significant experience achieving the types of outcomes you would be pleased with. What type of breast operation will best achieve your goals will depend largely on your physical examination and personal goals. If you are presenting with breasts that are sitting low on your chest wall, mastopexy surgery may be indicated. ...Read more
Maybe: Sometimes the nipples will be too sensitive for a while, and occasionally they will be less sensitive. Permanent changes in sensation are rare but possible. ...Read more
Yes: There is always going to be a scar after a surgical procedure. How a scar heals and fades is unique to each person, and can take up to a year. Scars for a breast augmentation can be hidden in the breast fold (underneath the breast), around the areola (dark skin around the nipple), or in the armpit. ...Read more
Pregnancy after aug: Although it is not at all dangerous to get pregnant right after breast implant surgery, it may alter the final result. It is possible that once all of the pregnancy/nursing-related changes have passed, that there could be more sagging or loose skin. Another concern might be the ability to nurse. Breast surgery can also interfere with the ability to nurse, but this is rare. ...Read more
Low risk: Although any surgery has inherent risks, including the risks of anesthesia, breast reduction and breast augmentation are both very common and safe surgeries. You should have a thorough history and physical exam before any surgery to ensure you are healthy enough to undergo surgery. ...Read more
Many types DBL BBL: Many different types of double bubble have been described. Most commonly this is due to placing a large implant beneath a small or constricted breast. This causes the implant to "peak out" from under the existing breast causing the classical double bubble appearance. Occasionally this can be improved with a dual plane dissection and radial relaxing incisions. Other solutions have been described. ...Read more
Snow in Dubai?: Prediction of these implants on the market for public use would be like predicting it is going to snow in dubai. The usual process of the fda is slow, to try and minimize patient harm so if you really want these implants it may be the dreaded impossible to predict wait. Best not to let the bra hang, see your local plastic surgeon for the current available options. ...Read more
What kinds of implants are safest for breast augmentation? I know there are different types of implants available for breast augmentation, but which kind is the safest? .
Fat Transfer: "stem cell" breast augmentation is really no more than fat transfer to the breast. There can be stem cells that are harvested along with the fat, but the majority is still fat. Some of this fat goes away after the injection, but that also means that some survives permanently. ...Read more
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 more
Yes, temporarily: Often, nipple sensitivity is increased initially. This can be way too much, at first. Within few weeks, this subsides toward normal. Unfortunately, breast augmentation can also cause permanent loss of nipple sensation on one or both sides, due to injury to the nerves in the breast. This is very rare, but, if it happens to you, it is of little conciliation that it happens very infrequently! ...Read more
Both are safe: Both operations are extremely safe, but breast reduction takes longer in the operating room and involves more incisions and scars. Augmentation involves use of implants, which are also safe but have their own particular issues. Obviously, one woman cannot need both operations, so individual medical details are much more relevant, and both operations (in different patients) are quite low-risk! ...Read more

Surgeons vary: Surgeons vary in their recommendations following surgery with some recommending limited activity and compression dressings while some even make their patients sleep on their breasts the day after surgery. Inwouldmdiscuss this with your surgeon. An increasing number are adopting a regimen of "rapid recovery" exercises. See video: http://youtu. Be/lJs9tr75b70 ...Read more
Unproven, and. . .: It would be surgical tourism since this doctor practices in vienna. Though stem cells are now available, and fat grafting to the breast is possible and controversial (results no bigger than 1 cup size, some dead fat causes calcifications and can interfere with cancer detection or mimic cancer on mammogram), this is far from mainstream. See abps-certified plastic surgeon and get implants! Please! ...Read more
Call your surgeon: Best to call your surgeon and ask. If they don't know, call your primary care. While it ahould be ok, therws way too much to consider in a short answer forum like this. Hope this helps! ...Read more
Mild to mod alcohol?: At 18, I hope you are not consuming excessive alcohol which is considered more than 2 drinks per day. Patients who consume this much are at a higher risk of numerous complications. If drinking small amounts, refrain from alcohol for 48 hours and certainly no binge drinking prior to that ...Read more
