Breast enlargement is a medical procedure that involves placing silicone or saline implants under the mammary gland or under the pectoral muscle to increase the volume, shape and consistency of the breasts. This can be done to enhance small breasts, to correct possible asymmetries or to restore the low consistency, due to aging, pregnancy or drastic weight loss cures. Breast enlargement can take several weeks from the initial consultation until the end of the postoperative recovery period and involves communication and close collaboration between the patient and surgeon.
Before placing the implants, you as a patient have to take many important decisions, including the type of implants used, their volume, location or where the incision will be made. In addition to this, your surgeon will ask you to follow some specific instructions in the period before surgery.
Breast enlargement surgery usually lasts for about 1 or 2 hours. Immediately after surgery you may experience pain for a day or two. While you will be able to get up from bed and move normally after about 48 hours, some side effects may persist for up to several weeks or even a month after surgery. It is advisable to follow your surgeon’s instructions during the recovery period and ask a friend or family member to help for several days.
Breasts are an important component when it comes to the look of a woman. When a patient is unhappy with the size or the look of the breasts, she may have a lower level of confidence in her attractiveness. Breast enlargement surgery can improve the general appearance of a woman, making her more confident. Larger breasts can also balance the silhouette, especially if you have prominent hips, eliminating the appearance of the “look” of your body. This procedure can restore volume and firmness of breasts affected by pregnancy, age or drastic diets. Implants are used for breast reconstruction after mastectomy or surgery and can correct any asymmetry.
After this operation you will notice an increase in the level of self confidence, which will improve the quality of your personal, social or professional life. A woman who is conscious of her value is better to better capitalize the opportunities offered. The ideal breast enlargement patients are well informed about the expected results and the risks of this kind of medical intervention.
Teenage girls are not good candidates for breast enlargement because their breasts are still developing, making it difficult to determine whether or not teens need really this intervention. Breast augmentation may be, in this case, a permanent solution to a temporary problem.
