Driving after Breast Augmentation Surgery

Patients often question me:  When is driving after breast augmentation surgery allowed?

Dr. Cherup is the medical director for Invisible Ink
Laser Tattoo Removal

Unlike older lasers which deliver heat to the pigment and surrounding tissue, the newly FDA approved PicoSure laser uses PressureWave Technology to shatter the ink into tiny particles that are easily eliminated by the body.
