Important Considerations Before Breast Augmentation

All of us have things about ourselves that we would like to change. It is natural to want to look the best that we can. Our appearance affects our self-confidence and how others feel about us as well. Breast augmentation is one way we can alter our appearance. This procedure has given many people more self-confidence and an attractive new look. Breast augmentation is done regularly with a relative certainty of success. But if you are considering having a procedure done, it is best to have as much knowledge about the surgery before you begin making appointments. Here are a few things you should know.

Incision Types: One of the things you will discuss with your doctor will be the location of your incision. There are four choices, but the one that will give your doctor the optimal conditions to do a perfect and safe breast augmentation (called เสริมหน้าอกปลอดภัย in Thai), is the inframammary fold. The next best choice is around the areola, but if you have a small areola this might be possible. Through the armpit and through the navel are two other options. But both have an increased chance of infection. The benefits of the latter 2 is, no visible scar in the breast area. But proper scar therapy can minimize that consideration.

Everything Ages: Breast augmentation is usually not a one-time operation. Chances are that you will want to come in later to make alterations. And the implant itself will get older and will likely need to be replaced at some point.

It Takes a Little Time to Get Settled: Immediately upon getting a procedure done, you might feel that the placement of the implant is too high on your chest. You need to know that eventually there will be some movement downward, as gravity begins to take effect. You should wait about 6-8 weeks to see what the finished result is going to be.

Know What You Want: Have a Good Idea of what you want before you make an appointment. When your doctor understands what it is you wish to see happen. He will be able to give you much better advice about what he can do for you.

When you have your first consultation, your doctor will be able to demonstrate exactly what procedure will be best for you, and you will be able to discuss what size and type of implant will be the best match. Breast augmentation is very common these days, but make sure you do your research and find a doctor with a good reputation and referrals.
