Every day, women are making the choice to get breast implants. However, many women get this procedure done without really considering their future with breast implants. Fortunately, the expectations that you should have are all positive.
Having breast augmentation enlargement can enhance your bust, making shopping for clothes easier and more exciting. Your new, enjoyable experience with finding clothes will last throughout your lifetime, as your breast implants are a permanent enhancement to your body.
Your breast augmentation natural look will give you a confidence that you may never have had before. They can make you feel more feminine due to having a more womanly figure, in turn, giving you higher self-esteem. This reflects directly on your personality from a positive self-image. This far outweighs the cost plastic surgery entails.
Breast implants are a permanent plastic surgery that you will have all of your life, unless you choose to ever have them removed or revised. When you hire a reputable surgeon to do your breast implants, the chances of ever having to get them revised is minimal.
Planning and Preparing
Getting breast implants to enhance your appearance or to merely lift up your self-image is a great idea. It takes careful planning and evaluation before you can take the next step of actually getting the cosmetic surgery done.
When you first decide to get breast implants, start with a consultation with a reputable cosmetic surgeon. At the consultation you will do a majority of your decision making and planning. Your surgeon will help you choose the size and type of implants, as well as the incision placements, that will give you the most natural breast enhancement.
When you make the decision to get implants, you do so because you want to enhance the appearance of your body. However, depending on the situation, sometimes your surgeon will suggest having other procedures done at the same time, such as a breast lift, after they evaluate your breasts.
If your breasts sag as a result of aging, weight loss or pregnancy, you may want to consider having a breast lift at the same time. Your surgeon can lift your breasts, move the position of your nipples and enlarge your breasts with implants all at the same time. This will prolong the length of the procedures and allow your breasts to look fuller and more youthful. A reputable plastic surgeon is very familiar with performing both procedures together.
Other surgeries that may be done at the same time include the reconstruction of the breasts or the reduction of the breast implants. These are also rather common. The doctor should work with you to help you achieve the look you are going for.
If you would like to know more about the other procedures that can be done at the same time of your breast implants surgery, talk with your surgeon during your evaluation. They will be able to give you their expert opinion.
After your consultation, you must set up the date for your breast implants surgery. You will need to make sure that you can take a few days or so off of work. You will need to make sure that you have someone willing to stay with you for at least a day or two to help you with everyday chores around your home, not to mention to pick you up after surgery. You will not be allowed to drive home after surgery because of the anesthesia used. It’s just always wiser to have a close friend or relative to help with this.
When asked about their breast implants and the pre-op and post-op experience, many women advised others to bring a friend or relative, and to definitely have someone there to help with day to day house tasks for a day or two. Rest and relaxation is also recommended by most women that have gone through the surgery.
