How Soon Can I Hit the Pool After Breast Augmentation?

Sun-kissed summer fun is right around the corner, which means that women who are considering breast augmentation with Board Certified Knoxville Plastic Surgeon Dr. Dean Kleto may be wondering about timing their procedure and recovery with swimsuit season.

If you want to improve upon your physique in time for pool and beach weather, and breast augmentation is part of that plan, don’t wait to schedule a breast surgery conference with Dr. Kleto so that your recovery time steals as little of your summer fun as possible.

Just how long does it take to recover from breast surgery and begin shopping for your new physique?

The first part of that answer is, each person’s body is unique.

That said, for most breast surgery patients who heal without complications, about two weeks is enough recovery time before shopping for a new swimsuit or wading into the surf. Just be mindful that any exercise such as lap-swimming should remain on the lighter side for a month to 6 weeks after breast surgery. Make sure the doctor has first cleared you for such activity.

One more tip about swimsuit season and looking your best: Research supports the idea that the best approach to protecting yourself from the aging and skin damage caused by the sun is to wear sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.
