How Long After Breast Augmentation Before I can Bathe and Swim?

Following breast augmentation, it is important that you keep your incisions dry and clean. This helps prevent bacterial growth and infection. It also helps protect against unnecessary delays in healing.

Proper incision healing relies on fibrocytes producing connective tissue - a process that that can be slowed or altered by soaking the area. For this reason, it is typically recommended that you wait for at least three to four weeks after breast augmentation before entering a pool or submerging yourself in a bathtub.
