If you’ve gone through breast augmentation and the ensuing recovery process, don’t worry: the hard part is over! Congratulations, you should (hopefully) now have the body you’ve always wanted. For many women, the period of time after their new implants settle and all the bruising and swelling has gone away is an extremely exciting period. All that dreaming and planning has finally turned into a reality and they can look in the mirror and be proud of what they see. Clothes fit the way you want them to and you walk out of the house with your head held high. Don’t you want this feeling to last? Here are some things you can do to keep your implants looking great.
Part of what keeps implants looking great is paying attention to your skin. Don’t forget: moisturizing is important for all of your skin if you want to stay fresh and healthy looking. But it is especially important for women who have undergone breast augmentation. The skin around the chest has been subject to a great deal of stress and stretching. Pamper it. Use oils and moisturizers that will allow it to stay fresh and glowing.
While this is more for women who are still in recovery from their breast augmentation, it is an important part of the process. Massaging the chest after the initial swelling and pain has dissipated will help your implants find their natural place in your tissue and many women have found it leads to a more natural, settled appearance in a quicker time frame. Talk with your doctor about any massaging you should do and whether or not he recommends it.
Even women with implants fare better when they utilize the help of extra support. Gravity will take its toll on even women who have had breast augmentation, contrary to popular belief. While women who have a high profile implant can get away with going braless for a while, you may find that dropping and sagging set in sooner than if you had used support.
Have Them Redone
If it’s been ten years or so since you had your initial breast augmentation, it might be time to re-visit your doctor for an update. Implants are not meant to last forever, so it is only natural that your look will be diminished by the time a decade rolls around. Make an appointment and decide whether you want to go forward with implants for another ten years or if you prefer to go natural from here on out. Your surgeon can surely accommodate you either way.
