02 Dec Here’s Everything You Can Do After Breast Augmentation Surgery
Breast augmentation surgery has been one of the most popular plastic surgeries on a global scale for decades. John Park MD Plastic Surgery specializes in this procedure, which enhances the size and shape of the breasts via breast implants. There are many types of breast implants that differ in shape and texture. You can customize the size of your breast implants and select their placement—above or below the chest muscles. A breast augmentation is completely personalized to you and provides an immediate and lasting boost of self-confidence.
Understandably, you also want to continue living your best life after breast augmentation. Many women wonder if there are certain hobbies, lifestyle preferences, or future goals that will be compromised due to breast augmentation—and that isn’t the case at all! In fact, there’s usually even more things you can feel confident doing after breast implants. Here are just a few of the things you can do (or still do) after a breast augmentation.
Whether you prefer intensive cardio like running or prefer weight training, yoga, or any other activity, once your breast augmentation heals you can return to all of your favorite workouts. You will, of course, probably need to change the sports bras you use but that’s one of the best parts of the surgery—shopping for new clothes. For those who are into very aggressive activities, such as boxing, you will also need to delve deeper into the type of implant and placement with your surgeon. For example, a saline implant placed below the chest muscles can provide a little more security for very active patients.
Some women delay breast augmentation surgery because they think or know they will breast feed in the future. Breast augmentation typically does not get in the way of breastfeeding. You can help ensure trouble-free breastfeeding by seeking out the absolute best surgeons. You can get the size, shape, and profile of breasts you want right now without waiting. In fact, it’s very common for patients to have biological children and breast feed them after such a surgery.3. Sleep on your stomach. If you’re an avid stomach sleeper, you might wonder if you can maintain this habit after undergoing breast augmentation. Every patient is different, and you will need to modify how you sleep during the recovery period. However, many women who are stomach sleepers continue to sleep this way after augmentation. You can help make your sleep even more comfortable by treating yourself to new, special pillows designed just for stomach sleepers. There are even some pillows designed for those with larger breasts who sleep on their stomachs. For a lot of women, it’s a real treat to qualify for such a pillow!
Wear clothes and outfits you like with confidence
It’s true that some of your current tops and dresses might not fit after breast augmentation, but shopping for new clothes is a favorite part of this process. If you’ve shied away from certain styles in the past, like a plunging neckline, rest assured that many patients feel confident wearing nearly any style or outfit after a breast augmentation. Plus, many women find that they no longer need a bra. Breast implants can look completely natural even when you go braless. This makes even more styles accessible, such as fully backless dresses.
Breast augmentation not only enhances your breasts, but your entire life. Most patients think about the surgery for years before booking their complimentary consultation. This can be due to a number of factors, from wondering whether they can breast feed to not wanting to give up a sport like distance running. Understanding all you can do after breast augmentation can help make your dream a reality. Let’s discuss more about the benefits of breast augmentation during your initial, no-pressure, complimentary consultation.
