Things to Consider Before Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is performed throughout the world and remains one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. Because of its popularity, there has been much focus on providing women with lasting results and safer, more effective options. With all of the wonderful benefits of the procedure, there are still a few things to consider before committing to breast augmentation.

Breast Augmentation Before and After Photos

Implant Size and Revision Surgery

Before getting breast augmentation, it is a good idea to think of revision surgery as a certainty in your future. Statistically, many women get their breasts re-done about 10 years after their initial surgery for a variety of reasons. Many styles of implants are now extremely cohesive with a low rate of rupture, but rupture can still occur and require replacement. There may also be other complications that result soon after surgery or over time. After 10 years, when a woman’s body may have changed and her implants look the same or perhaps she no longer likes the size she initially chose, she may very well desire a new implant shape or size. It is a good idea for patients to consider the future expense and recovery time of a revision before deciding to get breast augmentation in the first place.

Time in Recovery

Certain choices with breast augmentation can make recovery slightly easier or faster depending on the results you desire. As long as you make your desires clear during your initial consultation, Dr Zoumaras can help guide you to make the right decisions. You should take into account the shape and size of implant you want, the incision location, and implant placement (either above or below the pectoral muscles). All choices will impact the way your breasts look, the amount of time spent in surgery, and the recovery process.

Future Pregnancy

Even if you do not plan to breastfeed, your breasts go through many changes throughout pregnancy and will definitely change shape, which is why some women wait until they are finished having children to undergo breast augmentation. However, pregnancy will not completely undo the results of your procedure. In addition, breastfeeding is still possible after breast augmentation but may be affected by certain incision locations and implant placement options. If this is a concern of yours, let Dr Zoumaras know and he can recommend the best options for you.  

Combining Procedures

For the best results, many women find that combining their breast augmentation with a breast lift is the best choice. A breast augmentation will increase the size and improve the shape of the breasts, while a lift will move them higher up on the chest. Combining the two can provide an overall youthful, enhanced outcome.
