You Still Have Time to Hit the Beach After a Breast Augmentation: What You Need to Know

If you are avoiding the beach this season due to self-consciousness about your breast size or shape, breast augmentation may be the solution. This plastic surgery procedure adds fullness to your breasts so you can wear your favorite bathing suit with confidence. If you’ve been thinking it’s too late to take advantage of breast augmentation this year, there are a few basic facts about the procedure you need to know.
Outpatient Procedure

Breast augmentation is one of the most common plastic surgeries performed today. Most patients have this procedure performed on an outpatient basis. This means you can return home the same day as your surgery, as long as you have someone with you for the first 24 hours. Drs. William and Jeffrey Umansky perform this procedure at Umansky Plastic Surgery in La Jolla, making the procedure much more convenient and comfortable for their San Diego patients.

Immediate Results

Breast augmentation is an extremely satisfying procedure for most patients, partly because they can see the ee soon after the procedure. There is some swelling and bruising immediately following the augmentation surgery, but this will subside rapidly. Within days, the new breast size and shape will become evident, so you can start to have a good idea of what your revised body contour will look like.

Quick Recovery Period

Some women shy away from breast augmentation during the warm weather months because they are concerned about missing out on seasonal activities due to an extended recovery process. However, the recovery time after breast augmentation is only around 1-2 weeks, giving you plenty of time to enjoy your new body profile while the temperatures are still comfortable. Recovery time does vary somewhat, depending on the specific procedure performed and your overall health before surgery.

Minimal Scarring

Visible scarring is another concern that often keeps women from pursuing the breast augmentation they want. However, this concern is also mostly unfounded. Incisions for this procedure vary, based on the type of implant used and the placement of the implant. Choices include around the areola and along the breast crease underneath the breast. No matter which incision is used, post-surgical scarring is generally well hidden.
