Should I Get A Boob Job?

If you have always felt insecure about your chest, if they are naturally small or uneven or perhaps you have lost some of the perkiness after having children, then you may consider opting for breast augmentation. Over the years breast surgery has become one of the most popular and sought-after cosmetic procedures, thanks to the lifting stigma on plastic surgeries and improving quality of life. If you are thinking about getting a boob job, there are a few important things to know before you go forward on this journey.

It is a surgical procedure

When thinking about getting breast augmentation you need to really think about whether you are ready to go under the knife. Look into the specifics of the procedure and explore the options available to you.

Usually, a boob job is done by making an incision within the breast tissue for the implants to be inserted. There is a less invasive option that involves the injection of fat, but this is still considered a surgical procedure. The incision could be made in a number of places such as under the breast, in the armpit or around the nipple. You can express a preference, but the doctor will usually decide based on the distribution of your body’s tissue, the type of implant they are using and the desired enlargement you are looking for. So, bear in mind that it may not be possible for you to get exactly what you want.

There are different types of implants

The two most common types of implants are silicone and saline, but there are alternative composites available as well as the use of autologous fat (this is when fat is harvested from other areas of the patient’s body via liposuction and injected into the breasts)

Saline implants ripple more than silicone, but they are considered safer because if ruptured then the saline will be safely absorbed into the body. Silicone implants tend to look and feel more like natural breasts which is what leads most patients to go for this option.

Prepare for implant replacement surgery

After a certain amount of time, you will need to replace your first breast implants – but modern implants can sometimes last over a decade before needed to be changed. You should be prepared to attend annual check-ups and make sure you stay proactive in inspecting your breasts regularly to pick up on any issues that may require a doctor’s attention.

And Finally: 

Think realistically about the size change

When you meet with a doctor, they will examine and measure you to assess the best strategy for you. You may not be able to go forward with the exact procedure you had in mind, the doctor will let you know which technique will produce the best results for you personally. Regardless of anything, you will not be able to go straight from an A cup to an E cup in one surgery. If you want to go larger then you will need to go up a few sizes with each surgery after several years so that your body can adjust to the augmentation accordingly.
