I only waited about 2 weeks, and that's more because my DH was worried about hurting me. In the packet that my plastic surgeon gave me, it pretty much said you can do it as soon as you feel ready and as long as it doesn't hurt.

2 weeks is probably a good time frame. I think it was about that long for me. I know my husband was very hesitant and there wasn't much touching above the waist yet, but it was fine. The sensation in the nipples is definitly different, but different nice, so that was good. I kind of remember some throbbing feeling in them during sex and stimulation, but I don't believe sex at any time after surgery will hurt your incisions and healing.

I keep the telephone of my mind open to peace, harmony, health, love, and abundance. Then, whenever doubt, anxiety, or fear tries to call me, they will keep getting a busy
signal - and soon they’ll forget my number.
