How to Make Your Breast Augmentation Surgery More Successful
If you thought that breast augmentation was one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures, you would be right.
Even though this type of surgery is performed on a regular basis, it can still be dangerous and lead to a number of complications if it’s performed by an inexperienced surgeon. Thick layers of fat and tissue need to be cut in order to insert the implants, which means your body is also going to need a good amount of time to heal and recover.
How to make sure your breast augmentation surgery is done right
If you want to reduce the risk of complications and the chance of needing revision surgery, here are some tips that will help make your breast augmentation surgery more successful.
Use your consultation wisely
While your consultation is always a good time to learn more about the procedure, it’s also the best time to learn more about the surgeon who will be performing your surgery. Before you schedule your surgery, it’s imperative that you find out as much as you can about your surgeon’s experience and qualifications. It’s also a good time to gauge whether your surgeon’s personality is a good fit for you as you want to feel as comfortable as possible with your doctor before undergoing a procedure of this nature.
Since this is an invasive procedure, you have the right to ask as many questions as you need to before you agree to the surgery.
Use your consultation wisely to ensure the best possible outcome.
Look at all implant options
Each type of breast implant comes with its own pros and cons. To ensure that you’re completely happy with your results and understand these advantages and disadvantages, ask your surgeon to explain all of the implant options to you.
For example, saline implants will deflate if they rupture but the saline isn’t nearly as harmful to your body as silicone is. However, silicone implants offer a more natural-looking result.
Ask your surgeon to take you through each option, the risks associated with them and how long each type of implant will last before you make a decision.
Your recovery is important
When you undergo breast implants surgery with Dr Laniewski, you will need to take at least 1 – 2 weeks off to allow your body to recover and heal. Patients can expect some pain and discomfort but this can be alleviated with pain medication.
Your recovery process plays an important role in how successful your results will be. It’s important to follow your surgeon’s post-surgery care instructions and to refrain from any strenuous exercise and labour for at least 12 weeks after your surgery.
It’s also important to remember that you will need to wait for all swelling to subside and for your implants to settle before you’ll see the true results of your surgery.
Realistic expectations matter
As with any surgical procedure, it’s so important to set realistic expectations about your results. If you have a small frame, it’s not the best idea to increase your cup size to a DD as this will only lead to pain and discomfort later on.
A reputable surgeon will help you take all factors into consideration before deciding on an implant size and will tell you exactly what type of results you can expect after your procedure.
If you keep the above things in mind before you undergo breast augmentation surgery, your procedure should produce the results you’re hoping for the first time around.
