From the time a girl enters puberty, she likely wants a generous, rounded bust. However, not everyone fills out to their desired size. Breast augmentation offers women the chance to achieve the fullness they desire, permanently, by placing implants around the pectoral muscles in the chest. If you’re not happy with your breasts and believe them to be too small, breast augmentation may be the right procedure for you.
The Goals of Breast Augmentation
Getting implants does more than just making the breasts larger. Depending on the type of implants and how they are positioned in the chest wall, implants can increase fullness and firmness.
They can also make breasts more round, if desired. If you have a noticeable difference in size from one breast to the other, implants can also be used to create symmetry. This means that, after surgery, your breasts will be the same size.
Understanding the Process
Depending on the surgical technique and implants used, the surgeon will determine where to make incisions to house the implants. Once the implants have been placed.
Once the implants have been placed, the surgeon closes the incisions, bandages you and sends you to the recovery room to wake up.
After Care of Breast Augmentation
After your time in the recovery room, a trusted friend or member of your family can take you home. You will need assistance for the first few days, especially with activities like caring for your hair, taking a shower or preparing your own meals. Someone may also need to drive you to your follow-up appointment.
During your recovery period, you will need to follow the surgeon’s instructions to the letter. This ensures you heal as well as possible and lowers your risk of complications like infections or excessive scarring.
Don’t push yourself. It’s normal to feel a bit weak after any surgery, and resting is imperative to proper healing. If you spike a fever or feel generally unwell, call in right away to report your symptoms.
