Breast Augmentation Overview
If you are unhappy with the size of your breasts and are considering breast enlargement, you are likely wondering how the process works and whether or not it’s right for you. Breast enlargement can improve confidence and help you achieve the look you have always wanted. In this guide, you will learn tips to improve your results and discover what to expect moving forward.
Is Breast Enlargement for You?
You will need to speak with your doctor to see if you are a good candidate for breast enlargement. In general, the best candidates are women at least 18 years old who are healthy and in decent shape. Let your doctor know if you have any medical conditions that might complicate the procedure.
Keys to a Successful Breast Augmentation
Follow these tips if you want to have a successful breast enlargement procedure. Make sure you are serious about getting breast enlargement and compare all of your options. If you don’t want to face unneeded complications, you must choose a size and shape that makes sense for you and your lifestyle.
Breast enlargement can cause pain and soreness for several days to six weeks after you leave the clinic. Before you begin, make sure you give yourself plenty of time to recover after the surgery. You might need to give yourself some time off if you play sports or have a job that requires strenuous activity.
Planning Your Breast Implant Procedure – The Consultation
Speaking with a plastic surgeon is the first step you will take toward your breast enlargement procedure. You will tell the surgeon what you would like to change about your breasts and what you would like your end result to look like. The surgeon will want to know about your medical history and other information that might impact your results. Based on measurements of your breast and your post-operative goals, your surgeon will recommend an implant for you. Using a custom breast implant sizing system, you will have the opportunity to “try on” different implants and get a feel for how they look and feel. This process will help give you an accurate idea of what your results will look like once everything heals. 3-D computer visualizations can help you see your breasts in their new size and shape.
The Breast Enlargement Procedure
Breast enlargement is an outpatient procedure and lasts between one and two hours on average. The surgeon will prepare you for the procedure and start the procedure by making a small incision on each breast – typically in the breast fold or at the border of the nipple. Dr. William DeLuca and Dr. David Tauber carefully place the incisions to minimize visible scarring. A pocket, or space, is developed for the implant – usually partially behind the muscle. The implant is inserted using a minimal-touch technique and adjusted to fit properly. The skin is closed with absorbable sutures and the breasts supported in a post-operative bra.
After Your Breast Enlargement
Ensuring that you follow your surgeon’s instructions for post op care and activity restrictions is key if you would like to heal as quickly as possible. Your surgeon will give you a post-operative bra and possibly a superior strap that is used to support the implants within the breasts while they heal. Follow-up visits are scheduled after surgery to help ensure you are healing properly and that no complications develop. Although you will be able to go home right after surgery, avoid physical activity for a few weeks.
