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.

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.

Here’s the catch: liposuction results cannot be undone, but they do not make you impervious to weight gain, either. If you do not take steps to maintain your liposuction results, new fat pockets will form, bringing with them...
