Breast Implants and Bikinis: What You Need to Know

If you’ve finally slipped into your favorite bikini for the first time all year but weren’t absolutely in love with your curves, you’re not alone. Summer is a popular time of year for many women to start thinking about getting breast implants to help enhance their natural shape and perfectly fill out their bikini top. If this sounds like you, here are a few things to consider before scheduling your breast augmentation this summer.

Your Breast Implants Are More Than Just a Cup Size

Believe it or not, using cup measurements isn’t an accurate way to determine the right breast implant size for you. Instead of asking your plastic surgeon to help you fill out a DD bikini top, it’s better to discuss the right volume of implant to complement your natural curves and body proportion.

Your Results Won’t Come Overnight

With summer in full swing, you’re probably eager to flaunt your sexy new look on the beach as soon as possible. Keep in mind, though, that you won’t see your full results from your breast augmentation for a few months after getting implants.

Planning Ahead for Your Breast Augmentation

If you’re not quite ready to stay out of the sand and waves this summer, now is a great time to start planning your fall or winter breast augmentation. That way, you can maximize your summer fun this year and will be ready to show off your sexy new curves just in time for next year’s bikini season. You might also want to consider body contouring procedures such as a tummy tuck or liposuction paired with your breast augmentation. Non-surgical options such as CoolSculpting can be performed before or after your breast augmentation.

Just be sure to work with an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon to get the most out of your consultation and breast augmentation procedure.
