Dear Mono
Just talk to your surgeon, but if the scars are healed nicely this should not be a problem.
Avoid exposing scars to sun for at least 12 months.
Always use a strong sunblock, if sun exposure is unavoidable (SPF 30 or greater).
Avoid a costume with stays and underwire
Refrain from vigorous activity or any activity where you can get bumped on the breast.
enjoy your holiday!
