The reputation and recognition of breast augmentation as one of the most popular types of plastic surgeries in the US didn’t come without its fair share of successfully performed procedures that made women become the best version of themselves.
Over the years, more and more patients have explored options to improve the appearance of their breasts through this type of procedure, as the results are known to look very natural. These exceptional results and positive reactions from their friends and family would not have occurred without the surgical expertise and careful planning of the surgeons performing this delicate procedure.
When paired with the proper aftercare, many women can experience life-changing results from their breast augmentation procedure.
If you are considering getting breast augmentation, consider these 8 tips to ensure that you get the most out of the procedure:
- Be Transparent with Your Goals During Your Initial Consultation
The first step in any major surgery or procedure is an initial consultation with the surgeon to discuss the entire course of the procedure to ensure that the treatment plan is appropriate for the patient. It is highly recommended that you communicate your goals to your surgeon, as this allows them to manage your expectations about the results and develop an appropriate plan to ensure that you achieve your desired outcome.
- Choose The Right Size, Type, and Placement of Your Breast Implants
Breast implants come in different types and sizes, and part of the initial consultation is determining which implant size will help achieve each patient’s unique goals. There are two broad types of breast implants: Saline and Silicone. Your plastic surgeon will guide you through the entire process in a thorough and individualized fashion. Other major aspects of the decision-making process are the shape and size of the implants, the position of implant placement within the breast, and the approach in terms of the incision. These considerations are why the initial consultation is an important step, for your surgeon to explain your options to you in detail and even make recommendations.
- Consider Combining Procedures
Some patients opt to combine their breast augmentation procedure with other treatments to bring out the best version of themselves. Patients who wish to combine their breast augmentation with other surgical procedures are highly encouraged to explore the various available options.
- Treat Your Incisions and New Breasts with Care
Proper aftercare is vital in the recovery phase of any major surgical procedure. Since acquiring breast implants is a delicate procedure, it is highly recommended that patients look after their incisions with the utmost care while recovering. Patients can expect proper aftercare instructions from the doctor following the surgery to prevent any problems.
- Don’t Rush Your Recovery
The road to recovery is a long one that requires a lot of patience and constant care. For this reason, patients are informed about what to expect after surgery during the first consultation, to avoid activities that could interfere with the healing process of the treatment. During the first few weeks of recovery, rest should be your top priority – not doing heavy housework or jumping back into your exercise regime. This risks complications and may prevent you from getting the most out of your treatment.
- Avoid Drinking and Smoking During Recovery
Smoking and drinking are both known to impair the body’s ability to heal and recover, hindering progress and increasing the risk of running into complications. As early as four weeks before your procedure, your surgeon will require you to stop smoking, and you’ll need to carry this over throughout your recovery.
- Don’t Expect Immediate Results
Full recovery after breast augmentation can take between 4 and 6 weeks, so it is important to set realistic goals for recovery. With proper aftercare and regular visits to your plastic surgeon during this time, you will be able to see your new and enlarged breasts in no time.
- Work Only with an Experienced Plastic Surgeon
Like the thought process of acquiring new products or availing of any services, you get what you pay for. Ensuring that an experienced board-certified surgeon performs your surgery is one of the sure-fire ways to get quality results following the procedure with minimal risks of running into any severe issues.
