Before Augmentation: Three Things to Consider
The decision to move forward with breast augmentation is a personal matter that is chosen by different women for different reasons. Whatever your reasons for wanting to get breast augmentation, there are three things to consider and discuss with your cosmetic surgeon before your procedure.
Many women can benefit from a breast lift. It is possible that you could get the results you are looking for with a breast lift alone. If your primary concern is sagging or deflated breasts, a breast lift can restore the shape and natural feel of your breasts. In some cases a breast lift is necessary in conjunction with the breast augmentation so that you get the shape and firmness that you want rather than just the size.
Silicone or Saline?
There are many different types of implants that are used in breast augmentation procedures. All of these implants can be divided into two categories—silicone and saline. Silicone implants often give a more natural feel, while saline implants are often considered to be safer in case of a rupture. There are advantages and disadvantages to each, so it is important to discuss your options with your surgeon.
It is important that you plan the timing of your breast augmentation carefully. Total recovery from breast augmentation can take a few months, and for the first few weeks you will not be able to wear a normal bra. You will want to make sure that your breast augmentation surgery is scheduled so that your recovery period does not interfere with certain events or special occasions.
