What To Know About Breast Augmentation
 
Breast augmentation raises a number of very important questions for the person considering it.
If you’re the surgery, you’ll want to know which surgeon to pick, which specific procedure is best for you, and, most importantly, what your breasts will look like once the surgery has been performed.
Fortunately, online sources like www.AboutPlasticSurgery.com are chock full of info that can answer many of your most common questions.In the meantime, however, here are a few things to know before heading in to meet with your surgeon.
  • First, you should know (because many people don’t realize it) that breast augmentation is not only about enlarging breasts. These days, surgeons can reduce and enlarge breasts, re-shape, even out or reconstruct them. So, while you probably already know which of these types of procedures you would like done, you may want to consider the range of options available to you.
  • Today, your breast augmentation does not have to depend on guesswork. Not long ago, it was up to a woman and her doctor to decide what size and shape to aim for in the surgery, and the result would not be previewed before surgery. However, while it is obviously impossible to get a completely literal preview of what your breasts will look like following surgery, there are tools available now that allow women to view very close approximations of what their new breasts will look like. These sizing indicators can be very helpful in ensuring that you’re thrilled with your results.
  • You’ll also want to carefully consider the recovery phase before undergoing a breast augmentation surgery, so that you can plan around it. It’s not as simple as having an operation, removing the bandages, and going about your day. You will likely need to be inactive for a period of time (typically anywhere from 5 to 10 days depending on what procedures you have done). Whatever the case, it is of vital importance that you follow your surgeon’s directions for recovery, to make sure that your breasts heal correctly, and you end up with the beautiful results you want.
There is plenty of information available on the Internet if you want to know more, or if you have specific questions about your breast augmentation surgery. However, these few basic points should help to get you started. The good news is, breast augmentation today is a very precise surgery, and if you make the right decisions, it should go exactly the way you want it to.

    Before having breast augmentation, one must think about many risks and consequences. Althoughmodern technology has allowed the risks to drop significantly lower, it’s still there. You have to consult the doctor if this is really right for you.

  • These are all very valid points, and it’s great to have a basic resource to collect them! One thing that really should be emphasized is the importance of finding a doctor that is board certified in the area of cosmetic surgery. While licensed doctors are technically able to perform any kind of procedure in or out of their wheelhouse, objective boards of physicians for different specialties help regulate and assure the quality of doctors who wish to practice different types of medicine.
