PostSubject: Is Breast Augmentation Right for You?   Sat Dec 03, 2011 3:05 pm

he decision to receive any elective surgery
can be a difficult one to make. There are many factors to weigh in
deciding if plastic surgery fits in to your life, whether it's a face
lift or breast augmentation. Plastic surgeons recommend being fully
informed of the risks of any procedure before going under the knife.
This is particularly true for those considering augmentation, one of the
most popular options among women wishing to improve their appearance
and increase confidence.For plastic surgeons, breast augmentation
is one of the most frequently performed procedures. Women opt for
breast implants for several reasons, including:
* To help clothes fit better
* To increase breast fullness
* To improve self-image
* To feel more confident
* To reconstruct a breast after a mastectomy
* To even out a breast which is noticeably smaller than the other
There
are good reasons and bad reasons to receive a breast augmentation. For
instance, sometimes girls younger than 18 are interested in
augmentation. Plastic surgeons generally suggest waiting until a woman's
breasts are fully developed before performing any sort of surgery on
them, which means waiting until after they are adults. In addition,
there are some things breast augmentation won't do:
* Breast
implants won't fix very droopy breasts. A breast lift is recommended for
droopy breasts, and can be done at the same time as your breast
augmentation. Cosmetic surgeons will help you decide if a breast lift is
needed.
* A breast augmentation is not a quick fix for all your
problems. You should realize that changing your body will not
necessarily change your mind. In addition to speaking with a cosmetic
surgeon, you may consider speaking with a therapist if you have
significant body image issues.
For women living in some regions of
the world or in certain professions, augmentation may almost seem like a
necessity - after all, everybody's doing it! However, opting for
plastic surgery just because everyone else is isn't always the best
idea. Before deciding to get a breast augmentation, plastic surgeons can
walk you through the procedure and associated risks to help you make an
informed decision. If you are generally happy with your appearance but
are interested in a few tweaks, breast augmentation is likely a good
place to start.
It's important to be in good health before
receiving a breast augmentation. This means you should ideally be at a
healthy weight and shouldn't smoke cigarettes. Your plastic surgeon will
let you know if you should lose weight before the procedure and will
encourage you to quit smoking if you do. Beginning with a healthy body
translates to a faster and easier recovery.
