When you make the decision to have breast augmentation surgery, it can be an exciting time in your life. You know that there will be changes made to your body that you'll like and that can enhance your self-esteem. However, there could be a few questions that you have as you get started with the breast augmentation procedure.The first thing that you should do is think about why you want to have breast augmentation. It could be because you're not happy with how your breasts look. If you've lost weight, you might not like how your breasts sag. After considering the benefits of the surgery and the reasons why you want it, the next step would be to consult with a surgeon you're comfortable with as the doctor will see private areas of your body that others might not see.During the consultation, you'll talk about your physical health while discussing the size and shape breasts that you want. There are usually computerized tools that the doctor can use to give you a better look as to what you can expect from your surgery. You can also look at images of past surgeries that the doctor has performed so that you have an idea as to the precision of the work completed. When you're in the office, you'll learn about the types of implants and decide which would be best for your body.During the surgery, you're usually given sedation anesthesia. The procedure will likely last for about an hour, perhaps longer depending on how easy it is to place the implants. After an opening is made, the surgeon will place the implants. The location of the opening will usually depend on the type of implant being used. You'll be given instructions as to what you should do and what you should avoid doing during the recovery process. It takes a number of weeks for you to see a final difference in the size and shape of your breasts and for you to start getting back to everyday activities.Learn more about how to get started with breast augmentation and the steps that you need to take by making an appointment with Palmer Cosmetic Surgery.
