Getting Back to the Beach After Breast Augmentation Recovery

open graph image

If you want larger breasts to fill out your swimsuit this summer, it’s not too late to visit Dr. Beth Collins for breast augmentation in Guilford, CT, and be back on the beach before the season ends. Breast augmentation recovery typically takes just a few weeks for her patients from throughout West Hartford and the shoreline areas, with minimal scarring that does not show in a swimsuit.

How long does it take to recover from a breast augmentation?

While you can go to the beach, get back in the ocean 2 to 3 weeks after breast augmentation surgery, breasts are not going to look as pretty as they will in 2 to 3 months. Like many cosmetic surgery procedures, the full results of breast augmentation surgery are seen once all the swelling is gone.

It takes several months after breast augmentation surgery for all swelling to go down. However, you will be recovered and healed enough to hit the beach a few weeks after surgery.

What season is best to schedule surgery for my best swimsuit body?

Women of all ages choose to have breast augmentation surgery to increase the size of their breasts, correct an asymmetry, or restore lost volume after breast feeding and weight loss. Look through our online gallery of breast augmentation before-and-after photos to see actual results.

While many women choose to undergo breast augmentation surgery in the fall or winter to ensure that they are fully recovered for swimsuit season, the short recovery time means that you can have surgery now and be swimming again by August.

Other popular surgeries that can help you improve your beach body, such as a tummy tuck, have a longer recovery time. (Procedures can even be combined as discussed in this blog post.) You may want to schedule a tummy tuck after Labor Day if you don’t want to lose too much beach time this summer.
