Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that had been performed now for many years. Many people looked at this as a procedure only for the rich and famous so why nowadays are so many people looking to get breast augmentation or breast enlargement surgery?
Breast augmentation – WHY?
People choose breast augmentation or breast enlargement for different reasons. The main reasons we come across are: to enhance the body contour, to balance a difference in breast size, to improve breast size after having children or to reconstruct the breast after previous breast surgery. There are many benefits from having breast augmentation or breast enlargement surgery, quite simply you might just want larger breasts, or because of weight loss or pregnancy you may want to enhance the shape of your breasts. People also tell us of the psychological benefits following the procedure as they feel more feminine being able to wear and enjoy wearing new/fitted clothing or clothes they just couldn’t wear before all in all more and more patients feel breast augmentation will and has increased self-esteem (self-confidence).
Breast augmentation – why have a consultation when I know what I want?
Firstly, before any breast augmentation procedure, we will always have a very thorough consultation with all our patients, during this we can discuss what kind of breast implant is best for you, based on your needs for example textured liquid implants with a simple round shape often give as good results as shaped cohesive gel implants. We will need to discuss with you exactly what will happen at every stage so you know what to expect. The operation is performed under a general anaesthetic and usually takes about an hour and a half. There are several options for surgical incisions that need to be discussed: they are Inframammary, transaxillary and periareolar, all of which will be discussed in much more detail. We also need to talk through the aftercare programme and what you can expect after the surgery for breast augmentation.
You should be able to go home the same day or the day after your surgery. You might be required to wear a special supportive bra for several weeks to help your breasts settle after the procedure. Everyone recovers at their own pace and heals differently so results may vary, however, most women are able to return to normal activities within two to three weeks. As you can see this and so much more will need to be discussed so we have made the first step so easy, simply call one of our team today at your nearest UK clinic to arrange a FREE consultation to discuss your needs.
