Shopping for a Bathing Suit after Breast Augmentation

Summer is quickly approaching, and If you’ve recently had a breast augmentation and are ready to show off your body at the beach or swimming pool, you may be having trouble finding a bathing suit that fits right.

Old habits die hard, and you’re probably still shopping for your old body shape.  A smaller bust  may have actually been easier to shop for – grab a triangle string bikini top or a strapless bandeau top and you’re done.  Larger breasts mean you need to make sure you’re covered and supported. But not to worry, there are plenty of options for women with fuller breasts that provide coverage and ample support.

One style that works well is a halter top which provides more coverage than a triangle top but still shows off your new cleavage.  Halter top bathing suits also have the support needed for larger breasts than a strapless top, which may cause breasts to appear droopy. Another option is a swimsuit with underwire for additional support.  Just make sure that you’re far enough out from your surgery to wear a top with underwire.

Regardless of the swimsuit you choose, you deserve to show off your new body, and more importantly, your new confidence!

We are excited to offer Laser Hair Removal

If you are considering treating excess hair in preparation for the upcoming warm weather, now is the time!  If you’re not happy with shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal may be an option worth considering.

Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly performed minimally invasive cosmetic procedures in the U.S. It beams highly concentrated light into hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles absorb the light thereby destroying the hair.

In order to receive maximum results, a series of 6-8 treatments is typically required for most patients. Treatments can be as short as 15 minutes for small areas like the lip, chin and underarms, or up to an a hour or more for areas like full chest, back, and full legs.

If you have questions about laser hair removal or would like to schedule your appointment, call Katie Garmon, our patient care coordinator, at 706.543.0404.
