What to Know Before Getting a Breast Augmentation: Part 1

breast augmentationCosmetic surgery is a great option for anyone who is looking to alter their body. But getting surgery done is a big decision to make, and anyone considering it should really sit down and understand the process as a whole.

This is especially true with breast augmentation. The number of breast augmentations performed in the country has almost tripled within the past 20 years, as more women are looking to change their look bit by bit. If you are interested in this type of procedure, here are a few things to know before you head in for your consultation.

There are different kinds
No breast surgery is the same. There are breast lifts, breast implants, and breast reductions. Depending on what your wishes are, you most likely will be able to work with your cosmetic surgeon to get exactly what you’d like to see in the mirror.

Your first surgery will not be your last
This goes for breast implants, as most women have to have follow up surgeries about 10 years down the road to get new implants. Even though implants are incredibly safe, there are plenty of things that can happen after surgery that would require a fresh set, such as a leak or the formation of scar tissue around the shell.

You can try on different sizes before you choose one
We never want you to make a decision you aren’t comfortable with, so you can try on different sizes of breast implants before you make your decision. If you don’t know where to start, don’t hesitate to ask your doctor for their opinion, but only go with what makes you feel comfortable. It is your body after all!

You may not be able to go from small to big all at once
As with any surgery, your body needs time to adapt to all the new changes. If you are a small A-cup and want to go to a larger D-cup, you may need to have a few surgeries so the muscles in your chest can adapt and adjust without causing you too much pain or discomfort.

Breast surgery can really change your look for the better. We have a lot of additional information to share about what to expect about this particular procedure, so keep an eye out for our next blog.
