What You Should Know Before You Decided on a Boob Job?

If you’ve been thinking about getting a boob job, or breast augmentation, there are several things you need to consider before you even book your consultation. Boob jobs are among the most sought-after procedures by women between the ages of 18 and 34 in the US and are a popular choice for women who want to feel more confident, improve the shape of their silhouette and enhance their appearance. One of the most important decisions you will need to make when getting a boob job involves finding the right surgeon.

Only an experienced, cosmetic surgeon or board-certified plastic surgeon can safely perform a boob job and ensure that you will get the results you want to achieve.

What Should I Consider When Getting a Boob Job?

When you narrow down your search to three or four qualified plastic surgeons in your area (questions to ask your plastic surgeon), you’ll need to set up a consultation for your boob job. Here are some of the things your surgeon will go over during your boob job consultation include:

  • Type of breast implants available
  • The incision location (armpit, belly button, etc)
  • The placement of the implant (above or behind the muscle)
  • What to expect after surgery
  • Smooth vs. textured implant options
  • Recommendation of saline or silicone implants

How do I Prepare for a Boob Job?

Your cosmetic surgeon or board-certified plastic surgeon will recommend a preoperative plan when you have signed your surgery contract or agreement, and may require a blood screening and other tests before surgery. You will need to stop taking aspirin and other drugs or herbal supplements for several weeks prior to your boob job, and will also need to quit smoking.

Most people need to take at least five to seven days off work after their boob job procedure because the breasts and chest will be sore and tender. You will also need to prepare healthy, well-balanced meals during your recovery period, and may need to wear a compression or restrictive garment to promote the healing process. Your surgeon may recommend a series of breast augmentation massage services as part of your recovery process.
