breast-implantBreasts are a part of the body that are uniquely female, and many women who have small breasts, or who have had their breast removed because of breast cancer, may not feel as feminine and attractive as they would like to. It is also hard to feel poised and in control during stressful situations such as a job interview or a date when you are uncomfortable with your body. You may feel like the person interviewing you, especially if it is a man, is judging your appearance or is secretly making fun of your flat chest. This type of negative thinking can make women feel unworthy or ashamed and can even turn into depression.
Breast implants are an excellent way to really boost a woman’s self-confidence, giving her the courage to be all she is meant to be. No longer does she have to worry about what she is going to look like in her bathing suit or be unhappy because of her flat chest. She can walk into a room with confidence and a feeling of self-worth. Does this sound like something you desperately want? Are you ready to take that leap into plastic surgery?
If you are ready to look and feel beautiful, there are a few things that you need to consider before running to your plastic surgeon’s office. By getting a good idea about the process and results of breast augmentation, you will be able to have clear and realistic expectations. Doing your research and knowing what you want will help you and your doctor create a plan of action that will meet your expectations.
Type of Implants?
The two types of implants that you can choose from are saline and silicone. Saline implants are inserted into the breast deflated, and once inside, they are filled to your desired cup size. With saline implants, the scar is smaller than with silicone and the size of breast can be more accurately sized by adding or subtracting fluid. Silicone implants, on the other hand, are manufactured in various sizes and made of a gel-like substance. Silicone implants will look and feel more natural than saline, and for this reason, they are the most popular choice of implants.
Will You Be Comfortable With Your Scar?
When you have a breast augmentation, one of the most important things to be prepared for is the fact that you will have a scar. Silicone and saline implants can be inserted within the breast fold, also called an inframammary incision, placing your scar in a well-hidden area under the fold of your breast. With the inframammary incision, your implants can be placed above or below the muscle. Although your scar will be slightly visible while you are naked, it will not be noticeable while wearing a bathing suit or bra.
What Size is Right For You?
If you have always been an A cup, you have probably daydreamed many times about how you would look with bigger breasts. But how big is too big? What size breasts will your body to able to handle? These are two questions that you need to talk about with your surgeon. There are certain factors like the location of your breasts on your chest, the amount of natural breast tissue you already have and the elasticity of your skin that will have an influence on what size of implant will be best suited for you. When you have your consultation with your surgeon, you can discuss your dream cup size and your physical factors and your surgeon can help you determine a size that will look natural and be appropriate for your body type.  You will also be able to try on implants during your consultation to help you determine the size you prefer.
A Doctor You Can Trust
Considering all of the information above will definitely help you prepare for your breast augmentation, but the most crucial thing you must consider before going forward with your procedure is “who do you want to go on this journey with you?” Finding a plastic surgeon who is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons, who has experience performing breast augmentations and most importantly, someone who you feel comfortable with, will make all the difference between a successful and blissful experience and a total disaster. During your consultation, feel free to ask questions and take a look at photos of other people who have had breast implants in that office. Don’t let your disappointment over your small breast steal your happiness anymore! It is time to feel fabulous and boost your self-esteem with your new breasts!
