Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that increases breast size. Although there’s a specific form of breast augmentation that uses fat, the most common form of breast augmentation involves implants. There are several common reasons why women of all ages may opt for this procedure. One is because they’ve never been happy with the size of their breasts. Another is because the volume they used to have has been reduced as a result of pregnancy or weight loss. 

What Breast Augmentation Can Do? 

This procedure can increase the fullness of your breasts. It can also enhance your breast’s projection. As a result of these changes, it can improve the balance of your overall figure. And because you may feel that your existing figure is lacking, going through with this procedure can enhance your overall self-confidence and self-image. 

What Breast Augmentation Can’t Do? 

If the primary issue you have with your breasts is that they severely droop or sag, an augmentation won’t fix that issue. However, that doesn’t mean you’re stuck with breasts that make you unhappy. Drooping or sagging can be corrected with a breast lift. And if you’re also interested in increasing the size of your breasts, a lift can be done at the same time as an augmentation. 

Is Breast Augmentation Right for You? 

Although the only way to know for sure if this procedure is right for your body and goals is to visit with a qualified surgeon, you can still get a pretty good idea prior to having your consultation. The first trait you need to possess is being physically healthy. It’s also important that you’re old enough that your breasts have fully developed, and that you have realistic expectations for the outcome of this process. 

In terms of specific issues you have with your breasts, feeling they’re too small, being dissatisfied with how they’ve changed after pregnancy or weight loss, feeling like their upper area is empty, possessing asymmetrical breasts, or disliking their elongated shape are all valid reasons to go through with an augmentation. 

What to Expect During Recovery? 

After the surgery is complete, you will immediately be transferred to a recovery area for monitoring. This period helps reduce the likelihood of complications like infection or excessive bleeding. During this time, your breasts will be wrapped with gauze dressings. A support bra or elastic bandage will also be used to help the breasts heal and cut down on swelling. 

As long as everything is normal after your procedure, it’s typical for patients to go home within just a few hours. From that point, you can expect to experience soreness and other discomfort during the first several weeks of recovery. 

Change Your Life with Breast Augmentation 

If you want to feel great about your body and be confident wearing everything from a dress to a swimsuit, the first step towards making your dream breasts a reality is to schedule a consultation with an experienced surgeon.
