You’ve finally gone through the augmentation process and are happy with your results. Now, you’ll need to make sure that you care for your breasts, ensuring you can enjoy your results for as long as possible.
Breasts represent both femininity and gender but we often exclude them from our daily beauty routine. Just like your face and neck require special attention, so does your chest.
If you want to start giving your chest and implants some special attention, here are some steps you can take after your surgery.
Caring for Your Breasts after Augmentation
1. Use Quality Sunscreen
When your breasts are not protected from the harmful rays of the sun, it can weaken and damage the skin. Applying a quality, high factor sunblock to your breasts before you spend time outside or go swimming will help your breasts look better for longer.
2. Invest in Good Bras
When your breasts are not adequately supported, sagging occurs. Dr Anh highly recommends investing in good quality bras that fit you correctly after your augmentation surgery. A large number of stores offer professional fittings as part of their services, ensuring you are purchasing bras that are just right for you.
3. Moisturize Your Skin
Along with protecting your chest from the sun, it’s also important to keep them moisturized, especially around the breast bone. If you aren’t already, make sure that you’re applying a good moisturizer to your chest when you moisturize the rest of your body.
4. Pay Attention to Your Posture
Good posture will keep your bones and muscles healthy and supple, plus it will give your breasts some additional support too. If you spend a lot of time in front of a computer, make sure that you’re paying attention to your posture. It’s also helpful to take regular breaks that will allow you to stand up and stretch.
5. Exercise Your Chest Muscles
Exercise offers countless benefits but it can also keep your chest muscles strong and supple following breast augmentation surgery. By regularly exercising these muscles, you can help your breasts stay perkier. Over and above this, by maintaining a healthy weight, you can prevent your breasts from sagging.
6. Watch Your Food Intake
When your body is healthy, both your physical and mental health will benefit. Your tissues and muscles need specific vitamins and nutrients to stay strong, which means your breasts will benefit from a healthy eating plan. A proper eating plan will also help with weight maintenance.
7. Quit or at Least Cut Down on Cigarettes
Smoking has a lot of adverse effects. Not only does it prevent oxygen-rich blood from enriching all of your cells, but it’s a known cause of cancer too – not something you want to have to deal with after breast augmentation or at all!
8. Perform Regular Checks
Even if you’re not a smoker, be sure to check your breasts for abnormalities on a regular basis. If you will be scheduling a mammogram, be sure to mention the fact that you have implants so that they can adjust their techniques accordingly. By following the above tips, there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy your implants for many more years to come.
