Breast augmentation is one of the most popular aesthetic surgical procedures available and offers women the ability to increase the size of their breasts permanently. Implants made of silicone or saline are inserted to increase volume and firmness, all while giving you a larger cup size. If you’re considering breast augmentation, here are some factors to consider before choosing a surgery date.
Your Overall Health
In order to get the best results, you need to be as healthy as possible before undergoing your procedure. If you smoke cigarettes, you should quit as soon as possible and not resume smoking after surgery. Smoking and secondhand smoke increases the likelihood of infection, skin loss and other complications.
If you have a chronic disease or syndrome, speak to the doctor about whether or not breast augmentation would be acceptable for you. Some conditions, such as uncontrolled diabetes or clotting disorders, can make surgery of any kind very risky.
The Recovery Time
Most women are working and back to their normal routines four to six weeks after breast augmentation. You will need a close friend or family member to help you for about a week after surgery, as everyday tasks like brushing your hair of changing your clothes can be difficult at first. You’ll need to factor this time away from work into your financial plans and arrange for the help you’ll need right after your procedure.
Your New Wardrobe
Suddenly having larger breasts will necessitate new bras, tops, blouses, coats and jackets. Depending on your size and style, this can be time consuming and expensive. You may want to consider buying items ahead of time so you won’t feel frustrated or overwhelmed by clothes shopping after surgery.
Your New Size
If you aren’t quite sure just how large you want your breasts to be after surgery, speak with the surgeon. This may help give you an idea of what cup size is best for you.
