Getting Ready for Summer with Breast Augmentation

We all look forward to bright, sunny days and vibrant summer outfits as the weather turns warmer. But for some, the arrival of the beach season can also bring feelings of self-consciousness or simply not feeling at home in their body. If your breasts are the source of that self-consciousness, breast augmentation can be the perfect option to enhance your curves and feel ready to take on the summer season. But what is the breast augmentation process like? Let’s take a look.

Initial Consultation

Your journey begins with a comprehensive consultation, during which you can talk to Dr. Deane about the results you’re looking for, your breast augmentation options, and what you can expect from the surgery. He will also ask about your medical history, examine your breasts, and discuss the right implants and incisions for your needs. A clear understanding of your expectations will enable him to advise you on implant type, size, and other surgeries if needed.

Pre-Surgery Preparations

Spring is an excellent time for breast augmentation as it provides ample time for recovery before the summer really gets going. Before your surgery, you may need to stop taking certain medications, stop smoking (if you’re a smoker), and limit your alcohol consumption. It’s also important to prepare for the recovery process. Have plenty of comfortable clothes that are easy to take on and off, fill necessary prescriptions, have some cold compresses at the ready, and make up a whole recovery area where you can rest and relax.

Recovery Time

Typically, you can walk around shortly after surgery, but it’s important to rest and avoid straining your arms and chest. Most people return to work after a week or two, but complete recovery, including resuming strenuous activities, may take up to six weeks.

Post-Surgery Care

You will be advised to wear a compression bra to minimize swelling and support the breasts as they heal. You’ll also need to keep the incision sites clean and take prescribed medications to ensure you’re comfortable and healing properly.

Results

Once healed, the results of your breast augmentation will be long-lasting and provide you with the natural-looking curves you’ll want to show off this summer. Whether you’re in a bathing suit, a dress, or a simple t-shirt and shorts, you’ll notice a boost in confidence almost immediately.
