A breast augmentation is best known for its ability to add volume to the breasts, enhance your silhouette, and help you feel more confident and beautiful. While your surgeon will do everything in his power to reach your aesthetic goals, you can use the advice in this article to improve your breast augmentation results.
If you implement these tips, your breast augmentation results will exceed your expectations and aid in a smooth recovery. Continue reading as we break down some suggestions and how they’ll help accentuate your breasts even further.
What Does a Breast Augmentation Do for Your Body?
A breast augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that uses silicone or saline implants to enhance the shape, size, and projection of your breasts into your dream aesthetic. A breast augmentation can boost your chest size and self-esteem by making you feel sexier and more feminine.
Take Advantage of Your Consultation
When your visit Dr. Widder for the first time, bring a written list of questions and concerns; in return, come prepared to answer questions about your health history. Remember, this is more than a first meeting – it’s also an interview for you and your surgeon. Consider bringing a list of any prescriptions or over-the-counter medications you regularly take. Be sure to also ask your surgeon about:
- Their credentials
- The results they have provided for other breast augmentation patients
- What to expect before, during, and after surgery
- What you should know about recovery and downtime
Choose Your Surgeon Carefully
A breast augmentation may be a well-known procedure, but it is complicated and requires a skilled and experienced board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive breast surgery experience. Ask to look at before-and-after pictures of their breast augmentation patients to determine how they tailor the operation to different body types.
Over the past 30 years, Dr. Shlomo Widder has performed countless breast augmentations.
Choose the Right Implants for Your Lifestyle
Breast implants are not one-size-fits-all devices. The best ones for you will depend on several important factors like your breast shape, body frame, size, and your personal lifestyle. For example, if you are active and love to work out, you may want to be more conscientious about implant size, so your larger breasts won’t interfere with their hobbies or fitness goals. On the same note, make sure that you don’t go too small. Many breast revision surgeries are due to women who wished they’d gone bigger.
Consider Combining With a Breast Lift
If your breasts are starting to sag due to age, genetics, or pregnancy and breastfeeding, implants alone are unlikely to correct the problem. Combining a breast lift with implants will give you more comprehensive results. If drooping breasts concern you, ask Dr. Widder what he recommends to give you the results you want.
Take Care of Yourself During Your Recovery
You will play an essential role in your operation’s success by carefully following your surgeon’s after-surgery instructions. Dr. Widder will give you precise directions, including how to care for your incisions, how to perform the implants displacement, massaging your breasts (which is critical for obtaining a natural look and it enhances healing time), what kind of bra to wear, and when to wear it, how you should sleep, and what kind of activities you can and cannot do in the first few days and weeks after your surgery. Follow these guidelines to the letter to ensure a smooth, complication-free recovery.
