Three Things You Need to Understand About Breast Implants

Three Things You Need to Understand About Breast Implants

Many women — more than ever before — are considering breast augmentation for a variety of reasons.

Some wish to enhance a small bust while others want to restore the youthful appearance of their breasts that they once had. Regardless, women today are armed with more knowledge than ever when it comes to this life-changing procedure.

If you are considering breast augmentation, here are three things you should know now.

Board-Certification matters in your surgeon

Dr. Andrew is proud to have recently received his board recertification. He had been certified 10 years ago and deemed it important to do so again. Not every surgeon is board certified yet can still perform surgery. A board-certified plastic surgeon has undergone rigorous testing and training to showcase they meet the requirements, experience and ethics put  forth by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. As such, it’s important to research the surgeon you’re considering.

One size doesn’t fit all

When it comes to choosing your implant size, you should give careful consideration. Though a certain size may seem appealing, it’s best to discuss your goals with your surgeon, who can offer an expert recommendation. Choosing the right implant size is an art of sorts, and your body size and shape, as well as your lifestyle, should be considered when determining the right fit for you.

The road to recovery

As with any surgical procedure, there will be downtime and a recovery process after breast augmentation. That being said, your breast augmentation should be carefully planned at a time when you are able to recover fully. You will likely need to take at least a week off work (provided your job is not a manually laborious one) and you won’t be able to do any heavy lifting for a few months. Further, you aren’t permitted to drive while on any type of pain medication. Therefore, it’s wise to plan accordingly with the proper vacation time and help from friends and family.
