Have you ever looked in the mirror and wished your breasts were just a little bigger? Many women feel self-conscious about breast size, and some even suffer low self-esteem. In fact, a recent study of 18,000 women showed that 70.7% are unhappy with their breast size, with about 50% wishing they had larger breasts.
If you’re one of these women, then you may want to consider having a breast augmentation procedure. Breast augmentation is a safe and effective way to increase your breast size, and it can dramatically improve your self-confidence.
A breast augmentation procedure is a surgical procedure that is performed to increase the size, shape, or fullness of the breasts. The procedure involves placing implants under the breast tissue or chest muscles. Breast implants are available in different sizes, shapes, and textures. Your desired look and body type will determine the type of implant that is best for you.
But, to be a good candidate for breast augmentation surgery, you’ll first need to be in good health. You’ll also need to understand that too much skin laxity will require a breast lift with or without an implant. Lastly, you should consider having the procedure for health reasons.
The surgeon will make incisions in the breast area during the procedure and then place the implants. The incisions are usually made in inconspicuous locations so that they can be easily hidden by clothing.
Recovery from a breast augmentation procedure takes about two weeks. Most patients report returning to their normal selves within a few weeks after surgery. There is usually some discomfort and swelling during the first week or two after surgery, but this can be managed with pain medication. It is important to follow your surgeon’s post-operative instructions to ensure a successful recovery.
