For many ladies, breast size and shape are vital components for feeling confident, attractive, and healthy.
You can exercise or go on crash diets to get fit and slim down, but breasts are usually limited to what you’re born with.
Therefore, if you were not born with the breasts you desire, breast augmentation surgery may be your best bet to achieve a fuller, more voluptuous chest.
Factors to Keep in Mind When Considering Breast Augmentation
You Can’t Have Anyone Else’s Breasts
Many women are often inspired to get breast implants after seeing the results other women have had.
While it is a great idea to have a mental image of what you want your breasts to look like, it’s equally important to know that a breast augmentation procedure is a highly personal experience. Results are subject to the size and shape of the implant and the patient’s physical features.
Additionally, your chest wall and breast tissue play an important role in determining the look of your final results. Discussing your expectations and possible outcomes of your procedure are crucial parts of the consultation process.
During your consultation, your plastic surgeon may use 3D breast simulation software to show you representations of how your breasts are expected to look after the surgery.
The positioning of the implant can affect the appearance of your breasts after the procedure. The implant’s perceived shape, texture, and size can vary depending on whether your surgeon places it on the chest muscle or envelopes it within the chest muscle.
If placed beneath the breast muscles, your breasts may feel hardened immediately after surgery, although they will soften and take on a more natural texture after recovery. Discuss the pros and cons of each implant placement with your surgeon to determine the best choice for you.
You Should Check Your Timeline
It is advisable to time your cosmetic surgery diligently. For best results and recovery, you should be at a stable, healthy weight with no plans for future pregnancies. It should also be over six months after you’ve stopped breastfeeding.
The breasts must have developed entirely, so age matters as well. Saline implants are appropriate for women over 18; silicone implants are only appropriate for those over 22.
There Will Be Risks and Recovery
Every surgical procedure involves a level of risk, breast augmentation notwithstanding. That aside, breast augmentation is a relatively safe surgery with a slim chance of experiencing complications.
If you follow all the pre-op and post-op instructions set by your surgeon, you should be good to go.
