Breast augmentation has been one of the most-performed cosmetic surgery procedures for women for many years running and is accompanied by a very high satisfaction rate. Not only do some women simply wish to increase their breast size, but breast augmentation can be a great tool for correcting loss of volume or firmness due to aging or pregnancy. If you’re someone considering breast augmentation, here are a few helpful pointers.
1) Do your research. It’s important to find a surgeon that you’re comfortable with, but also one that has the proper experience. Be sure to explore their website, view before and after photos, find out how many years they’ve been performing breast augmentations and if their facility is safe, and what their credentials are.
2) Do it for you. Anyone considering an elective, cosmetic procedure should always be motivated to do it for themselves and no one else. The decision to undergo a procedure should never be made because you’re feeling pressure from someone else. Do it for you!
3) Plan, plan, plan. While your surgeon will provide all the information and tools you’ll need both for your surgery day and the recovery period, make sure you ask any and all questions you have regarding your Big Day. Ensure your timing is right so that you can take the proper steps to allow for your recovery, and make sure you’ve got some support to help you with the process.
These are just a few helpful tips we recommend. An in-depth consultation with a Diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery is the best way to learn about the things that will help you come to the right decision for your needs.
