We were not all created equal. Clearly, puberty was kinder to some and not others. Considered a hallmark of femininity, ample breasts are desired by all and if nature isn’t going to bestow them upon us, you may be more successful with progressive medical procedures.
Worldwide there were over 1.3 million breast surgeries performed in 2015 – a number that is steadily rising. This staggering number means that if you are considering breast augmentation, you certainly are not alone. From celebrities to women who are just not happy with how they look, implants are certainly a popular option. If you are serious about taking the plunge, there are a few things that you should arm yourself with to ready yourself for this big step.
Saline vs. Silicone Implants
When opting for the procedure, you have a choice between silicone and saline implants. Silicone has a gel-like consistency while saline has a sensation closer to that of water. The most popular implants are silicone, as they have a more realistic look to them and are the closest in texture to real breast tissue. However, saline is safer for implantation as ruptures in the implants can be more easily detected than with silicone implants.
You may require more than one plastic or cosmetic eye surgery. Time does take a toll on your breast implants and as such, you may need a follow-up surgery to correct the effect. One-fourth of the women who get the procedure need surgery ten years later to fix any changes caused by various factors such as losing weight and getting pregnant.
When you visit your plastic surgeon, discuss all the costs involved; you don’t want any surprises when your bill arrives. For cheaper options in breast surgery Thailand is a good destination. By visiting a board certified doctor in such regions, you will be able to get excellent care for a much lower cost.
Try Out Sizes
Before you get the surgery, you can try out the cup size that you would like to get by first trying on a neoprene-filled sac. By stuffing these sacs into your bra, you can imagine the weight of your breasts after the surgery. Try on different sizes so that you know what you would be most comfortable with.
Go Up One Size at a Time
If you wish to increase you breast size significantly, you cannot do so all at once. Your body needs to adjust to how your body has changed, and needs to do it slowly. So with every surgery, you will only go up a few cup sizes at a time. This way, your body can get used to the weight and your skin can stretch more gently over your new implants.
Breast implants will have an effect on your bearing. The larger the breasts, the greater the impact on your spine and back. So if you want much larger breasts, take care to exercise proper posture and to tend to your body so that the least amount of stress is placed on your back.
Surprisingly, it does not take too long for you to recover from a breast augmentation. For milder procedures – and if your job does not require a lot of activity – you can be back at work in a week. For more invasive procedures such as the implant being placed behind the muscle instead of on top, your recovery time will be lengthier.
Now that you know what you’re getting into, you can be fully prepared with all your questions and your concerns when you meet your doctor. Hopefully, you will soon be on your way to a new you.
