Breast Augmentation is one of the most common plastic surgeries in the world. Patients decide to undergo the procedure for many reasons, and each person’s needs are different. Before you decide to go through with the surgery, there are a few important issues to consider.
Why do you want it?
While there are many great and valid reasons to undergo breast augmentation surgery, it is important to consider what it is that is driving you to change your appearance. Do you want to get the procedure in order to fulfill someone else’s wishes or to be more attractive to potential partners? Are you hoping to boost your confidence or to better fill a favorite outfit? These are fine reasons, but it is important that your choice to undergo surgery is in line with what will make you feel your best.
Do you understand your options?
Every body is different, and it is important to know exactly what best suits your particular frame. Mount Pleasant area patients are advised to come in and consult with Dr. Widenhouse before deciding on surgery. Sometimes patients have expectations that may not be in line with what can be achieved, especially in regard to what will look natural and healthy on their bodies. Dr. Widenhouse will be able to present you with all your options so you can make an informed decision.
Are you prepared for the commitment?
As with any surgical procedure, there are some risks involved and it is important to adhere to your doctor’s instructions in regard to the recovery process. You will likely need to abstain from most of your regular activities for a number of days or weeks, and it is likely there will be follow up appointments necessary to maintain your implants. You will be asked to refrain from smoking and to maintain a healthy lifestyle leading up to the procedure. Make sure to consult with your physician to make sure that the breast augmentation surgery suits your needs.
