I had breast augmentation (crease in breast fold) May 5. When can I resume isotretinoin to calm down rosacea, which has flared.

Accutane after breast augmentation
2 months post op, some advices:
In this regard, it's not advisable to carry heavy weights to prevent the implant out of position, and allow the formation of the physiological capsule around the implant, also to avoid pain and breast swelling. Kind regards,

Accutane after Breast Augmentation, when can it be started
Thanks for your question. Every surgeon is different as accutane delays healing and is usually not recommended to be used for 12 months before any surgical intervention that may cause scarring. I would check with your surgeon and see how your scar is progressing especially if you feel that the scar is still less than ideal. An in person examination would be required to give you the best answer. Ask your plastic surgeon. Good luck!
All the best,
