Breast Augmentation for Athletes

By Dr. Suzanne Yee on December 16, 2019


A woman stretching before a runThanks to breast augmentation, women can achieve more alluring contours and curves. The shape, size, and placement of the implants can be totally customized to meet various needs. Dr. Suzanne Yee can meet with patients at her Little Rock, AR cosmetic surgery center to tailor the treatment so results look natural and exceptional.

When performing breast augmentation on athletes, there are many unique aspects to the procedure. Let’s cover the basics below. We can go over matters in much greater detail during a consultation at our practice.

Special Considerations for Athletes

If you’re an athlete, you want your breast implants to enhance your figure without getting in the way and impacting performance. Whether you’re a runner, a soccer player, a swimmer, a weightlifter, or just a woman who likes to stay active, we will work with you to make sure your implants look great without taking you out of the game.

Picking the Right Breast Implant Size

First of all, it’s important to pick a good breast implant size. For women with slimmer or narrower frames, smaller implants tend to be better. For women with broader or wider frames, larger breast implants are typically more ideal.

The Importance of Implant Profile

In addition to implant size, we remind patients at our Little Rock practice that breast implant profile can make a major difference. Profile refers to the amount of outward projection the implants have. High profile implants tend to work well with women who have narrow chests, while low profile breast implants are typically best for women who have wider chests.

Placement of the Breast Implants

Breast implants can either be placed above the pectoral muscle or below the pectoral muscle. Weightlifters and women involved in heavy strength training can discuss the ideal implant placement strategy; it’s important for the implant to be secure without distorting the breast appearance.

Returning to Physical Activity After Surgery

After undergoing breast augmentation surgery, patients will need to take time to rest. Physical activity during this time will be restricted so incisions can heal and the aesthetic outcomes look their best. Patients can return to most physical activities about a month to six weeks after surgery.

It’s important to discuss recovery with our team and how it may impact your workout routine or professional commitments. We can determine the ideal timing for your breast augmentation procedure (e.g. the off-season or between major tournaments) so your ability to train and compete is not adversely affected.

Getting Used to Your Implants

It can take a little time to get used to your new implants, especially if they are significantly larger than your natural breasts were. Patients are advised to take things slow and be careful about pushing too hard early on. As the weeks go by, patients will get used to the implants being in place and be able to return to peak performance with comfort.

Finding a Good Sports Bra

Support is always crucial after undergoing breast augmentation surgery, which is why it’s essential to find a good sports bra after surgery. Try on several sports bras to find a few that fit right and offer support without compressing the breasts uncomfortably.
