If you’re looking to enhance or maintain your impeccable figure, you may be considering a breast augmentation. Although this cosmetic surgery is the most frequently performed one in North America, there are a few things to consider before becoming even more attractive in this area.
Augmentation Does Not Equal Lift
Whether it’s from pregnancy, breastfeeding, or simply age, if your breasts aren’t as perky as they used to be an augmentation won’t solve your problem. In fact, an augmentation alone may increase the sagging you’re currently experiencing. If you’d like to restore your perkiness as well as increase the volume of your breasts, you’ll want to consider also undergoing a breast lift. Fortunately, an experienced surgeon will have no problem performing a combined breast augmentation and lift.
Implants Aren’t Permanent
It’s not that you’ll need to undergo surgery every year, but remember that at some point your implants will need to be replaced. Most implants will last longer than a decade, but the FDA does recommend that if you go with silicone implants it’s best to have an MRI scan three years after surgery and every two years after that. With your busy lifestyle, you’ll want to add this to your calendar to maintain your health and figure throughout the years. It’s best to keep a great relationship with your surgeon who can help you schedule regular checkups and guide you in the next best steps should any problems arise.
Are you currently breastfeeding? While that’s no problem for most moms after surgery, incision locations can affect your ability to continue. Most surgeons recommend the incision be in the fold underneath the breast or at the armpit area instead of around the areola. Having your incision in those locations will make it comfortable for you and your new baby to continue breastfeeding.
Swelling and bruising are normal after this procedure. Some women have the tendency to be distressed with the amount of swelling they see right after the surgery. This can take weeks to resolve, but your surgeon will help you find anything that is unusual. Dr. Kadz, a board certified his surgeon, and his team will take extra care to make sure you are at ease
and look your best during and after your surgery.
