Breast augmentation can be an exciting procedure to consider. Being able to have more confidence in the look of your breasts and knowing you’re so close to obtaining it can be incredibly motivating. We love hearing that here at Cosmetique Cosmetic Surgery Center, and we want to channel that excitement into scheduling your first breast augmentation consultation. From there, you’ll be on your way to getting your procedure. Before we get started though, it is important to understand some factors of breast augmentation and how to prepare for it so your recovery is easier. Continue reading to find out more.
Start From a Solid Foundation
Being in good physical and mental health before this procedure is crucial to the overall healing process. Many patients who wish to undergo breast augmentation do so because they are not happy with the current look of their breasts. However, it’s important to be sure that this is something you truly want, and not meant to be a band-aid solution to other factors. Furthermore, the better physical health you are in before the procedure, the better recovery will go.
Know the Risk of Having Augmented Breasts
Breast augmentation is not a “permanent” solution, meaning that breast implants only last as long as they are cared for. Implants can deflate, be punctured, or become uneven over time depending on what they are subjected to. With that in mind, it’s important to realize that this is an investment you will have to care for and one that may take touch-up or replacement procedures down the line. It also changes the overall structure and feel of your breasts, which can lead to risks of partial nipple or total nipple/areola loss. It can also change the sensation of how they feel permanently.
Recovery Time Is Somewhat Substantial
Especially for those who have more physical occupations, this procedure takes time to recover from. You will need lots of rest and a supportive environment and diet for several weeks after your procedure. It may take up to six weeks before you can return to any kind of serious physical activity.
