Setting a Healthy Goal When Preparing for a Breast Augmentation

The main goal of having a breast augmentation procedure is to increase the size of the breasts. For a woman, the size of her breasts is a matter of high priority. Some women feel self-conscious or defeated with an unusually flat chest. Professional entertainers such as actresses and models want to enhance their breast size to allure to their viewers.

Some women may be motivated to get a breast augmentation due to a marriage crisis, but a plastic surgeon with the best interest of his or her patient in mind will advise against this. Using breast implants to salvage a relationship or repair damaged self-esteem is not the ideal psychological state in which to approach surgery.

If you have made the decision to get breasts implants, medications such as Aspirin and Ibuprofen will not be allowed prior to surgery in order to reduce risks of excessive bleeding. To eliminate the risk of infection, smoking will be discouraged, but antibiotics are usually prescribed during the period of surgery.

While under general anesthesia, an incision made under the breast crease, armpit, or around the areola, the surgeon creates a pocket to hold the implant. For best results, the best position for the implant is under the muscle rather than on top of it. Both silicone and saline implants are used, and there are pros and cons for both varieties.

Be sure to find a plastic surgery doctor who can honestly tell you about hazards, risks, and different options. Side effects like capsular contracture and nipple numbness should be discussed with your plastic surgeon, as well as methods to minimize the possibilities.
