So you’ve decided to go ahead with breast augmentation. Now that you’ve made your decision, the whole thing suddenly feels more real – it’s actually happening. And that means it’s time to prepare for the procedure. You need to learn as much as you can about proper care – both before and after receiving your lovely new breasts. So let’s take a look at what you need to do before and after your breast augmentation procedure.
Is the Procedure Right for Me?
You may still be on the fence about undergoing breast augmentation. Do I really need one? What are the benefits? If this is indeed the case, let’s take a look at some of the reasons why women choose the treatment, and what some of the benefits are.
There a number of aesthetic issues that breast augmentation can help correct. This includes but is not limited to:
- Issues with buoyancy
- Disparity in symmetry
- Problems with size
- Unwelcome post-pregnancy changes
As we age, it is not uncommon to become unsatisfied with how our breasts look and feel. This commonly plays a large part in why women choose to receive breast augmentation; the procedure helps restore some of that lost youth.
The other side of the obvious physical benefits of breast augmentation are the psychological ones. When we look better, we feel better about ourselves. This usually leads to an increase in self-confidence. Whether you’re at the office, at the beach, or in the bedroom, you’ll be feeling your very best.
What to Expect at Your Initial Consultation
During this consultation, the doctor can discuss shape, size, and what type of implants to go ahead with, as well as giving you an overview of the whole procedure.
What to Expect During the Procedure
The exact details of the procedure vary from patient to patient, as each surgery is customized based on unique wants and needs.
What to Expect After Breast Augmentation
Since breast augmentation is a surgical procedure, there is a recovery period involved. It’s important to take it as easy as possible and follow all aftercare instructions during this time.
There are a number of things you can do to ensure the healing process goes as smoothly as possible. These include:
- Taking care of any housework prior to surgery; this will save any unnecessary strain on your body.
- Using ice-packs to reduce swelling.
- Wearing loose-fitting clothes to minimize discomfort.
- Drinking lots of water in order to stay hydrated.
