What Is A Recommended Time To Return?

The recommended time span to return to scuba diving after the augmentation surgery varies for every patient and the surgeons. Commonly, the experts recommend resuming after few weeks to six months’ time. The variation in recommendations is due to the type of surgery performed on a patient. Every patient undergoes different technique for the surgery, so the instructions also vary.

Water Pressure and Implants

The water has its own amount of pressure that makes it fun for scuba diving. The increased pressure under does not have any effect on breast implants. The diver wears a special suit that fills his/her ear, mask and lungs with air that compresses with descending. It is the skill of diver to equalize air spaces in the body to keep the sir effected by water pressure. Rest of the body runs blood normally, which itself is a fluid and considered in compressible. It is, for this reason, that diver’s arms, legs,and other body parts do not feel any pressure. Typically, the saline or silicone implants have similar or higher density than water, so there is no compression.
