Will you get stretch marks after surgery?
Stretch marks on breasts can occur after breast enhancement surgery. Whilst you would expect this to occur in those women who get very large implants, this is not the case. The person’s genetic predisposition is largely what results in stretch marks. They can even occur in women getting very small implants with quite loose skin pre-operatively.
So we suggest moisturising your breast skin twice daily starting 1-2 weeks pre-op and continuing for the first 3 months after surgery. If however you do develop stretch marks, they will always be bright red in the beginning, but do fade to light white after about 6 months.
Of course, many women wanting breast implants already have stretch marks and often that causes a wrinkled loose skin appearance. In these situations, it’s extremely unlikely that you will develop more stretch marks, and usually the skin looks so much better after implants as it is stretched out and looks smoother.
