When Is the Best Time to Get a Breast Augmentation?

Breast Implants in DCSo you’ve read articles, looked at before/after photos, and begun to research doctors but you may still be wondering, what is the best time to get a breast augmentation?

Ideal timing for your breast augmentation procedure

  • You’re near your ideal body weight– We recommend that our patients are near their ideal body weight as weight loss and weight gain can have a large impact on the appearance of your breasts. We always want our patients to be happy with their results for years to come and to ensure long-term success, it’s best to maintain a relatively steady weight.
  • You’re not currently pregnant– This goes for almost any procedure, but we recommend that you wait until you’re no longer pregnant and your body has had time to adjust after giving birth. Pregnancy and its after-effects can drastically change your breast’s appearance. We can discuss this during your consultation as our recommendation can vary from patient to patient.
  • You’re ready to make a change in appearance– We understand that most patients take time to do their research prior to scheduling a consultation, but it’s important to fully understand the procedure you’re opting into. We’ll talk you through the procedure and ensure it’s right for your specific goals prior to moving forward. The procedure can drastically change your appearance and we want to ensure it’s in line with your desired look.
  • You have a week or two to recover– As with any surgery, there is a recovery period that should be taken seriously. Some patients need longer to properly recover than others but we always recommend you take your time easing back into your daily routine. This is something we’ll discuss prior to surgery so you can properly prepare for your recovery period.
