I’m sure you’ve thought of it many times…”What would it be like if I had a breast augmentation?” It’s a reasonable question for a woman to ask at some point, because time can play a big part in how our breasts look.
Perhaps you would like to balance out your figure, maybe you’ve had your kids and you want rejuvenation, or it could be you want your breasts reduced after years of back pain. No matter what the reason, there are a few things you might want to think about:
Yes, breast implants do not last forever. It’s not a one and done surgery, and the younger you are, the more surgeries lie in your future. On average, implants last 10 – 15 years, definitely a point to consider.
This is a decision you and your surgeon will decide on together. The new and safe silicone implants have become popular once again. Saline had made a big splash a few years past, when the old silicone implants were deemed unsafe. Silicone has made a safe comeback and most women like the look and natural feel of them over saline.
You and your surgeon will also have to decide on the technique he will use in placing your implants. There are three places that an incision can be made and the implant placed.
1. Around the nipple
2. Under the arm
3. In the crease of the breast
Personal preference and the type and size of the implant will play a role in this decision.
Usually, this is a one-time surgery. There are, however, three types of breast tissue, fatty, glandular and fibrous. But, developing fibrous or glandular tissue after a breast reduction is not a likely scenario. So, you can expect to only have one surgery.
So, there you have it. There are lots of things to consider and think about prior to having breast augmentation surgery. However, the most important is:
Do your research, because ultimately the success and level of satisfaction that you achieve will be directly related to the physician you choose. Make certain you choose a board certified plastic surgeon with experience and get references. Look at before and after pictures and make sure that you and your doctor can converse on a give and take level. This is the single most important decision you will make in regards to your breast augmentation.
