Oral stimulation of nipples

Provided that your wounds are healing well, eight weeks is more than enough time to begin oral stimulation of the nipples.  Good luck.

Post-operative breast augmentation

If your have healed all the incisions completely, without even a small suture spitting, you shoud be okay to resume oral contact of your nipple.  Please make sure your plastic surgeon agrees.

Oral stimulation on my nipples

At 6-8 weeks this should be safe - but that depends on exactly what was done, and how you're healing.  For obvious reasons, you'll need to check with your surgeon on both of these, just to be sure.

Otherwise, though, it should be okay.

Breast Augmentation Recovery

Most patients undergoing augmentation mastopexy can return to full unrestricted activities in six to eight weeks. It would be best to discuss this directly with your surgeon. Since they know exactly what you had done and how you are healing they can guide you best.

Healing after Breast Augmentation

Healing progresses rapidly after breast augmentation  and lift and wounds are 90 % strong after 3 weeks.  This assumes normal healing.   I suggest patients go back to 75% full activity at 2 weeks and full unrestricted activity at 3 weeks.  This full activity would also include sexual activity.  This rapid return  to activity has worked well for my patients for 30 years.  My Best,  Dr C

Stimulation of Nipple/Areola after Breast Surgery?

Your plastic surgeon will be your best resource when it comes to returning to specific activities. Remember, that your plastic surgeon knows exactly what was done, how you are progressing ( with or without complications),  knows more precisely what you are planning on doing when it comes to activities, and is ultimately responsible for your care.
 Receiving advice online in this regard may be confusing or worse.
