Swimming Following Breast Augmentation Surgery

Although Houston is still experiencing a very mild winter, people still frequent indoor pools and go to the beach (whether in town or on vacation). One thing many breast augmentation patients look forward to after surgery is sporting a new bathing suit to show off their enhanced figure. While this is a natural thing to want to do, there are some things to be said about swimming or sitting in a hot tub following breast augmentation surgery. Obviously, one would not want to exercise too soon after surgery, and swimming requires a great deal of upper body strength and motion, but there are other considerations for going to the water. The patient should not only have clearance to exercise from Dr. Eisemann, but should also be 100% healed with respect to incisions and draining. Swimming in any pool (public or private) before the incisions have totally healed is inviting the opportunity for infection. The same goes for sitting in a hot tub, which can be a breeding ground for bacteria and other germs. Even though patients are excited about going to the beach or the pool, the best practice is to wait until incisions are totally healed and until the patient receives clearance.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dr. Michael Eisemann, Dr. Bradley Eisemann, and the entire staff at Eisemann Plastic Surgery are committed to the health and safety of all of our patients and ourselves.

We are thankful to be connected to Houston Methodist Hospital, one of the most respected hospitals in the country. Because of this, our screening policy is aided by the hospital's official policies and checkpoint screening measures completed prior to entering our building. These measures allow us to do everything we can, at this point in time, to minimize the chance that we expose ourselves or our patients to someone who has been sick or contagious with the virus.

We are set up to perform new consults and patient follow-ups via ZOOM video conferencing.

As of Monday, March 23rd, our office is open. We are open and seeing select patients. If you are currently on the schedule, please call our office if you have any concerns about your own health.

While all major hospitals have stopped elective surgery at this time, we are very selectively performing indicated operative procedures in our procedure room and in our AAAASF certified operating room under local and IV sedation.

As always, both Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann are available by phone and email to answer any questions you may have.
