Are you considering a breast enlargement procedure?
A woman’s bosom has long been a symbol of beauty and femininity with the shape, symmetry, and size of the breasts playing a unique role in every woman’s self-perception.
Breast augmentation is about more than simply enlarging the breasts; it is a very effective surgery, suitable for women with insufficiently developed breasts or when the mammary gland system is shedding and the skin is slightly loose, as may be the case after breast feeding or significant weight loss.
The age limit for breast augmentation is generally 18 years, after the mammary glands are fully developed. It is recommended (but not required) that breast augmentation only be performed when a woman does not plan to get pregnant any more, as pregnancy and breast feeding result in changes of volume, producing a negative effect on the outcome of the surgery. Implants will not influence pregnancy in any way and will not expose the fetus to any danger. It should be noted that a number of patients were able to breast-feed normally after a breast augmentation although complications may occur due to insufficient lactation.
Surgery planning begins with an overall evaluation to ensure you are healthy enough for the procedure. This evaluation minimizes possible surgical risks. A complete history of all health disorders, medications, and allergies will be considered in pre-operative screening prior to surgery. While we cover the entire process in its entirety during your consultations the following is a brief explanation of what to expect during and after your procedure:
Breast augmentation is a popular cosmetic surgery procedure for women wanting an increased breast size. It can be for many reasons, but some of the more popular decisions to have this procedure are:
- To increase confidence and self-esteem
- If you feel your breasts are too small
- To improve your body image
- If your breasts are different in size and/or shape (asymmetrical)
- To restore lost size that occurs from weight loss or breast feeding
- If your breasts are sagging or have lost firmness
