If you are considering breast augmentation, you probably have a lot of questions about what you can expect from your procedure. Breast augmentations are among the most popular plastic surgery procedures performed in the United States, sought by women of all ages who are looking to improve the fullness and shapeliness of their breasts. Most women who undergo breast augmentation find they enjoy a renewed self-confidence and enhanced sense of self-esteem after the procedure, buoyed by the knowledge that they look their best. To help you decide if you are ready for a breast augmentation Boca Raton plastic surgeon Dr. Jonathan Berman provides the answers to some of the most common questions patients are asking about the procedure:
Am I a good candidate for breast augmentation?
If you are a healthy, adult woman (at least 18 years old) who is not currently pregnant or breast feeding, you may be a good candidate for a breast augmentation. You may be looking to increase the size of your breasts or simply wanting to improve the shape and appearance of your breast profile. Candidates should have realistic expectations of the procedure, and a full understanding that large increases in breast size may require more than one procedure to reach the desired goal.
Can breast augmentation surgery fix my sagging breasts?
While breast augmentation can create a fuller, shapelier appearance in your breasts, it cannot undo sagging or drooping breasts caused by childbearing, breastfeeding, or years of gravity. You can still gain the rejuvenated, perkier breast profile you desire, but you will need to have your surgeon combine your breast augmentation with a breast lift.
How long does it take to recover from breast augmentation?
It takes six full months to recover completely from breast augmentation. You can expect to feel bruised and sore for the first two weeks, although some women are able to return to work after the first week. You will need to refrain from strenuous exercise for six weeks to two months as your breasts heal further. After six months you should be completely recovered from your breast augmentation surgery, ready to face the world with the renewed sense of self-confidence that comes from knowing you have the full, shapely breasts you wanted.
Is it possible to get a naturally fuller appearance with breast augmentation, rather than a fake or “done” look?
Yes! Many women are deciding against the fake, over-emphasized look imparted by breast augmentations in the past. These discerning women are looking for breast augmentation procedures that create a balanced, more naturally curvy and shapely appearance.
