Protecting skin elasticity is one of the most effective ways of keeping your breasts in good shape. Among the several things you can do to maintain breast health before and after surgery, you can maintain skin by using sunscreen and quality, medical-grade lotions. Our products were designed for women who want better results from their surgery, as well as for women who aren’t ready for surgery and prefer non-invasive treatments.
Suggestions for good health for your breasts (and for your body, in general):
• Maintain a consistent weight so that your skin doesn’t stretch, then sag after you lose weight.
• Avoid smoking as it is not just hard on your lungs; it can cause your breasts to sag much earlier in life and can impede healing after surgery.
• Get fitted for bras that are appropriate to your breast size, shape, weight and activities. The right bra will reduce stretching your ligaments during exercise.
As always, regular mammograms and breast exams are important. This is as true after surgery as it was before surgery. In fact, detecting a lump can be easier after some surgeries, such as a breast augmentation.
