Dr. Kenkel, I am considering a breast augmentation and want to be bikini ready for summer. What is the recovery time and will I be able to hit the beach by summertime?

Recovery following breast augmentation does not require a significant amount of downtime. You will experience some discomfort and/or soreness during the first week after the procedure. Some patients require a pain pill or two the first day but most do fine with ibuprofen or tylenol. During the first 2 weeks we do not allow you to get your heart rate up or work out. At 2 weeks we slowly let you resume your normal activities. We wound not want you to swim in a pool or ocean for 4 weeks. No lake swimming for 6 weeks.
