Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures performed today. Most people who have contemplated enhancing their breasts are familiar with the breast augmentation options and basics of the procedure steps, but less are familiar with the aftercare. While you are recovering from your breast augmentation, there are a few important instructions that you will need to follow to ensure that your recovery goes as smoothly as possible. This includes adjusting your bathing habits for a while. While recovering from breast augmentation, you will need to avoid baths, pools and hot tubs, because you cannot submerge your breasts in water while your incisions are healing. You will need to do this for around three to four weeks. You will also have to wait for about 36 hours before you can shower. At Dr. Marcos Cosmetic Surgery, we are dedicated to providing you with the total care you need.
