Breast Implantation 101: All the Basics You Need To Know

Thinking of getting yourself breast implants? Here are some things you need to know.

It Might Not Be Your First or Last Breast Surgery

A post shared by Beauty Abroad (@beautyabroad1) on

The statistics have revealed that around 25% of the women who have had a breast surgery will need another operation sometimes after a decade. This is because the breast implants do not last forever. There is a chance that the implant would start to leak with time and there is a tendency that a scar shell would grow around the implant. This scar shell will result in changing the shape of the implant. This will cause you to get another implant as soon as possible. Other factors that result in another breast surgery include the loss of weight, pregnancy and maybe change of preferences.

How Much Will It Cost?

This will depend on the professional breast implants surgeon you have chosen to do the surgery. The surgery will include the expenses of anaesthesia, accommodation and other facilities as well as surgery equipment. The costs will also depend on the region, any specifications requested by the patients and more.

If you are planning to resort to a breast reduction instead of a breast augmentation, do know that such operations will take two to three times longer than a procedure done to augment the size of the breasts.

How Long Will You Have To Stay In Bed After The Surgery?

There is a chance that you would not be feeling yourself after the surgery for a week. However, you will be in an acceptable condition to get yourself to work if your employment does not need manual labour. Most of the women who go ahead with the choice of inserting the breast implant do so because they wish for a more natural look and to reduce the chances of getting a scar shell around the breast implant. And if that is the case, you might have to go through a bit of soreness for longer than you had hoped for.

The Implants Will Feel Different To Natural Breasts

Although silicone is popular for resembling natural breasts, do remember that they are antiviral and will not quite feel like your natural breasts. There is a higher tendency that one would be able to notice if that you have had breast implants if you had smaller breast tissue to begin with. If you are going with rather smaller implants it is best to place them under the muscles so that they would be quite hard to notice.

You Get To Try On Different Sizes before the Surgery

If what you are naturally gifted with is an A cup, you do not want to go to the double D cups right away. You can ask your surgeon to help you decide the perfect size for yourself. You will be given the chance to try on something called “sizers” at the surgeon’s office. It is significant to know that every woman needs to set goals that are realistic. Your body, the entire appearance as well as the skin might need a lot of getting adjusted to.
