Dr. Bauer of the Swan Center reminds women that they still have time to have breast augmentation surgery before swimsuit season and the heat of summer really begins if they hurry.

Dr. Joseph Bauer, a double board certified plastic surgeon and Founder at Atlanta’s Swan Center, specializes in breast augmentation and other breast surgeries. With swimsuit season just around the corner, he reminds women that they need to consider recovery time when scheduling breast augmentation procedures. The good news for those interested in the surgery for the upcoming bathing suit season is that there is still time to recuperate.

“Swimsuit season is fast approaching,” stated Dr. Bauer, “but women who come in now to schedule their surgeries can still make a full recovery before they plan their summer trips and enjoyable vacations. However, the clock is ticking and they will want to make a decision pretty quickly.”

Part of the reason it is important for women considering breast augmentation in Atlanta to schedule their surgeries soon is because there is a there is a total of about three weeks for full recovery allowing the patient at that time to be in pools, hot tubs, beach, and look pretty amazing in their new bathing suit by then after the procedure. It can take up to a month for the swelling and bruising to completely diminish after the procedure. Most women would not be comfortable wearing a swimsuit, while still dealing with some bruising and swelling.

Even after a month the implants may not have settled into their final position as the body adjusts to their presence. Some patients do not see their final results for six to eight weeks. Giving the body sufficient time after the procedure before donning a swimsuit will improve the patient’s satisfaction with the surgery.

Women who are considering breast augmentation at Atlanta’s Swan Center also need to take sufficient time off of work or other regular activities. They need at least 3-4 days not working and many benefit from a reduced amount of activity for a week or two for recovery period while the incision site heals and body adjusts to the implants. Dr. Bauer recommends avoiding strenuous activities for around six weeks, which means no heavy lifting post surgery to avoid damaging the incision sites.

As the weather warms up, more and more patients are visiting the Swan Center for breast procedures. Those who want to be ready for their swimsuits need to schedule their surgeries before the early slots are filled.
