After a Louisville breast augmentation an obvious question is “When should I get new bras?”.
It depends. If you had your implants placed under the muscle you will swell more and longer. In this case I recommend waiting at least 4 to 6 weeks.
If you had your implants placed above the muscle the swelling is less severe and doesnt last nearly as long. For these patients I recommend waiting in the 2 to 4 week range. Same holds true for bathing suits.
No reason to go spend $50 for a bra or $100 for a bikini only to have it not fit perfectly.
