Women have so many reasons for wanting to have a breast augmentation procedure done. For a lot of women it is about looking more attractive or feminine but for some it could be because they feel self conscious about the size of their breasts. Whatever your motive is for having a breast augmentation it gives you a boost of self confidence that you may not have had after you gave birth, got older, or for medical reasons such as a mastectomy.
Many women are born with the unfortunate problem of having disproportionate breasts. It is much more common then you may think, and a lot of women complain that one breast is bigger than another. For some women this can lead to a life of being very self conscious about wearing certain types of clothes or even finding a well fitted bra. Although some women strictly get breast augmentation to make themselves feel better, other women do it because it will make them feel normal again.
Before you make a final decision on having a breast augmentation, it is extremely important that you make an appointment for a consultation with a medical professional that is experienced with plastic surgery. You should do this whether or not you are committed to the procedure. This is the only time you will have to sit down and really learn about the produce and to find out exactly what takes place. You can discuss the risks and the benefits, and even if you decide not to go through with it, you will have a much better idea of what will happen if you ever do decide to do a breast augmentation later in life. You in turn will feel more confident about your decision whether you have it done or not.
Realistically speaking, your life may change after the breast augmentation. A consultation will also help you figure out your expectations and what is and is not important to you. There are limitations to what new breasts can do for you, and if you are expecting too much you may be disappointed at the outcome. By talking to your doctor honestly and in depth you can find out what feelings you may have about the surgery and the after effects.
The next question you want to consider is if you are doing this for yourself or to please someone else. It may sound like a dumb question but there are many women who do this to please their boyfriends or their husbands. It is not them who will live with this change in your life, it is you. It is your body, and before you make your final decision, make sure you are doing it for the right reasons.
The surgery will not take place until the doctor full goes over your health history with you. In certain cases of a younger patient, they may question whether your breasts are fully grown and whether you are mature enough to have the surgery. If you are still developing or still considered to be in puberty they may not allow the surgery or ask you to postpone it until you have reached a certain age or are full grown.
Be aware that you need to answer the doctor’s questions honestly and directly. That is why it is so important to know why you are doing the procedure and what you expect to gain from it. If you aren’t honest then the doctor may be hesitant about doing the surgery. This is something that will change your body, and they need to hear the truth in order to help you make the right decisions about the surgery.
Before scheduling the surgery, your doctor will want to know of any medication you are currently or have recently been taking. This is essential as there may be a reaction to the drugs that they give you. This includes at home remedies, natural or herbal supplements, as well as any over the counter medication. If you have any medical conditions now is the time to disclose it, as well as any history of breast cancer.
When the consultation is finished you will be much more informed about what is going to happen. This will help you to decide whether or not breast augmentation is for you.
