One of the most popular forms of breast surgery is breast augmentation. For this process, small incisions are made within the armpit or underneath the breast. A breast implant filled with saline or silicone is then inserted into the breast, and most people don’t have to worry about having an unsightly scar after the surgery is over. The outcome of the breast augmentation will depend on the size of the breast implants that you want, as well as your original cup size, so a thorough consultation with a board-certified doctor is necessary. Your body type and future fitness goals will also help you to determine the size of the breast implants you want to use. If you’re planning on becoming pregnant and/or breastfeeding, talk to your doctor about this before getting the breast implant surgery in order to get specific instructions on how to care for your body and prepare for pregnancy after your breast augmentation surgery.
If you are experiencing problems or discomfort with your breasts because they are too large, you may also want to consider getting a breast reduction. For this process, you don’t have to get any breast implants or additional fixtures on your breasts, so healing is usually fairly easy for most patients. A breast reduction can help you to get rid of back or neck pain that may be associated with breasts that are too large, and your body will become more proportioned. You should talk to your doctor about your fitness goals and body image aspirations, so that he or she will know if you plan to undergo a weight loss regimen after surgery. It is also best to reveal any medications that you may be on prior to surgery, even if you are taking natural supplements on a regular basis. Some of these medicines could cause bruising and make it harder for the blood to clot, so give yourself time to change your routine before surgery if needed.
Getting a breast lift is another possible surgical enhancement option. For this procedure, you don’t have to have breast implants, or the implants may be very small and not filled with as much solution. After the incision is made, the surgeon will lift the muscles and tissues around and in the breast to eliminate sagging and/or deformation. You’ll feel better in your clothes, and you may be able to do away with pain and discomfort in the back and neck with this surgery as well.
With these things in mind, along with a surgeon that is willing to answer any questions you may have, your surgery and recovery time should be successful and you can be on your way to enjoying life with your new look.
