As a female surfer, you may have contemplated getting breast implants but wondered how they would impact your sport. Here is the truth; whether you’re clucked, barney or a seasoned shredder, breast implants pose no threat to your surfing provided you conform to some simple guidelines.
Take Time to Recover
Once the pain has subsided and you’re past the initial post-surgery recovery, you will need at least a few weeks without involving yourself in intense activities. That means steering clear of heavy lifting (e.g., carrying your surfboard) and other demanding tasks until you receive a clean bill of health from your doctor. The good news is that some implants will heal faster than you imagine. For instance, Motiva Anatomical implants are cell-friendly, feel super soft, and have less impact on the breast tissues. Notify your doctor that you wish to resume surfing. He may assess you before giving the nod.
Be in the Right Swimsuit
Obtain a biking top or a swimsuit before grabbing your surfboard. The outfit should be snug-fitting to keep your breasts in place properly. This is essential for surfing and other active undertakings, such as swimming and jogging.
Learn Proper Paddling Techniques
With newly inserted breast implants, paddling out may feel more different than any other surfing aspect. Hence, you need to apply proper techniques for more effective paddling. For instance, practice holding your feet together to prevent drag and learn to keep your body still on the board.
