How Long After Breast Augmentation Until I'm Swimsuit-Ready?

Plastic Surgeon Serving Indianapolis, Indiana


The season of fun in the sun has arrived and many of the patients who visit Renaissance Plastic Surgery in Indianapolis, Indiana are wondering about breast augmentation surgery recovery and how long it may take post-procedure to don a great new bikini.

If you're a woman who wants to look and feel your best for summer, and think that breast augmentation could be part of the solution, the time is now to book a surgical consultation so that your new healthy physique is ready for peak beach and pool time.

How long will the recovery be?

Every patient is unique. But in most cases, when a breast augmentation patient heals without complications, it is safe for patients to start flaunting their hot new swimsuits and take a dip in the surf or pool, after about two weeks.

However, make sure any exercise, including swimming, is on the lighter side for a month to 6 weeks after your breast augmentation.

A word to wise: The single most successful way to protect yourself from the aging and skin damage caused by the sun is to wear sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.
