No matter how long and how badly you've been wanting to get breast implants, there are likely some unanswered questions you still have. Read this article to find some of the answers that you might still have about breast augmentation.
How do you decide on a size?
When it comes to choosing the size of breasts you want, you will be given a lot of assistance from the surgeon. The things the surgeon will consider before guiding you through the size selection include things like your weight, your dimensions, the amount of breast tissue you have, and anything else they deem important with regards to choosing the right size of breast implants. They will likely give you a maximum size they feel it would be advisable to stay at or under, then you can make the final selection according to the results you wish to have.
When deciding on the right size, go with a size that looks right for your frame. You also want to know you are going to look great in the styles of blouses you like to wear. You want to look great in a bathing suit, if you wear them. You also want to still be able to enjoy all of the sports and other physical interests that you enjoy. You want to be completely satisfied for the long term with the size you choose, so consider the future as well when you are selecting the size.
What are some types of implants you can choose from?
A newer style of silicone implant is the high-strength silicone gel implants. They offer the strongest silicone available for implants along with a very soft texture that gives you the benefit of breast implants that feel real when touched. You can also get implants that give you very natural looking breasts.
Additionally, you can choose implants that are round. Round implants can make your breasts look fuller and can cause them to protrude from your chest more. Then, there are implants referred to as 'gummy bear' implants. These are implants that are shaped like a raindrop. The benefits of the raindrop shape are that the implant will have an appearance that aligns with the natural shape of your breast.
Do you need to plan to take time off?
Many people think they can have a breast augmentation and then go on about their life as if nothing happened. A major reason for this is because breast augmentation has become so commonplace. However, you will need to take time off from work as well as other activities. For example, you may need to take time off from working out, lifting things, and so on. If you have an infant, you will need someone there with you at all times to pick the baby up for you. The exact amount of time you need to take off from your regular routine and activities will be at the discretion of your surgeon and will depend on many factors, such as how quickly you heal, how strenuous a life you normally live, and more.
