“ Can we fly after a breast augmentation?” As a dynamic generation, it is apparent that young people have the above concern. And if you are among those, let’s have a look at this article with Gangwhoo Cosmetic hospital!
THE REASONS WHY BREAST IMPLANTS RUPTURE WHEN YOU ARE ON PLANE
Recently, some of us may have known about the case of a woman having her breast implants ruptured mid-flight. After this piece of news was covered extensively in the media, serious safety concerns about breast implants have risen among women, especially those residing in foreign countries, preferring “boob job” operation.
In order to address this concern, Gangwhoo’s plastic surgeons have stated:
It is a common belief that the sudden fluctuation in air pressure, while planes take off and land suddenly, is the culprit resulting in rupturing breast implants. However, according to the research conducted by specialists, changes in the environment mentioned above may only cause nosebleeds and shortness of breath. Customers should be aware that breast implants (standard) can withstand high-pressure generated by a car rolling over; therefore, such changes are too trivial for them to burst. In the case of patients traveling by plane after having a breast augmentation, it can only be the risk of bleeding from breast incision due to the disparity in air pressure.
In conclusion, regarding the case of a woman having burst breast implants, there is an only reason that this woman has undergone improper cosmetic surgery procedures in a low-quality facility, which directly lead to breast implants ruptured by external impact from the environment.
CAN WE FLY AFTER HAVING BREAST AUGMENTATION SURGERY?
Can we fly after having a breast augmentation? As discussed above, the answer for this question is definitely yes, since the changes of air pressure in planes are not strong enough to have breast implants ruptured, especially those in high-quality standards that have been tested.
So, after undergoing “ a boob job” operation, customers can go on a plane if their health is in good condition.
HOW LONG BEFORE WE CAN TRAVEL BY PLANE AFTER BREAST AUGMENTATION SURGERY?
For those who still have concerns about whether they can fly after breast augmentation surgery, we suggest patients should avoid traveling by plane for around 5-7 days prior to and after surgery to reduce the risk of bleeding and infection. The ideal time to travel by plane is 2 weeks after the operation, according to a specialist.
DOS AND DON’TS WHEN TRAVELING BY PLANE AFTER BREAST AUGMENTATION SURGERY
1. Avoid carrying a heavy suitcase
When carrying heavy luggage, some problems related to breast augmentation may occur such as tightness, shortness of breath, heavy breathing, etc., which can trigger negative effects on breast incision. Especially for those of you who use large-sized implants, this risk will be more likely to happen since the improper patient’s position of bending over will easily cause overcompression in your breast.
In case of unavoidable circumstances, it is necessary that customers need somebody else to help with heavy luggage.
2. Frequent water supplement
Dehydration is usually found in patients after surgery, and it is normal that you frequently feel thirsty. The possible explanation for this problem results from the anesthesia used during the operation.
So, you need to have a frequent water intake of about 2.5 – 3 liters/day, or whenever you feel thirsty. In addition to keeping your body in good condition, staying hydrated will also accelerate your recovery process.
3. Have enough necessary medicine in case of an urgent situation
Apart from having all medicine prescribed by plastic surgeons during post-operative care following surgery. For safety concerns, we recommend customers having discussions with plastic surgeons for more advice on preparations before having the intention to travel by plane.

4. Light exercises on long-haul flights
Irritability, fatigue, etc., may occur to those who have to sit in an airplane during long-haul flights.
To avoid these conditions, you should choose seats near the aisles for easy movement and light exercise during the flight. This also helps stabilize blood circulation and ensures no unexpected incidents.
WHICH IS THE SAFEST MATERIAL FOR BREAST IMPLANTS?
If you still have concerns about “can we fly after breast augmentation?”, the perfect solution is to choose the high-quality standard of material for breast implants. For this reason, customers need to avoid having saline-filled breast implants which were made of sterile salt water and were widely known 5-7 years ago. Apart from having no negative impact on health conditions, saline breast implants, in general, have a loose structure which is easy to crack and burst. Furthermore, after surgery, breast implants don’t have a natural shape.
According to specialists, breast implants filled with silicone-gel is the best option to consider. This material has shown outstanding benefits compared to saline breast implants. Here are some benefits when deciding to get breast augmentation using silicone-gel implants at Gangwhoo Cosmetic Hospital:
+ With a special and durable structure including fixed amounts of silicone gel, silicone-gel implants are capable of withstanding excessive pressure compared to normal ones, and at the same time, if breast implants burst, the gel-filled inside will not fall out, which poses no danger to the human body.
+ The other special option is Motiva breast implants. The superior feature of this type of product is a recognizable chip inserted inside the Motiva implants, therefore, it is easy to track and monitor its condition. If something goes wrong, you will be fully insured for free.
Both the above breast implants have already been used in Gangwhoo Cosmetic Hospital, in which our services receive numerous positive feedback from our customers.
