Some questions women ask themselves about breast augmentation
Breast enlargement is a surgical cosmetic procedure which helps women get larger and fuller breasts. The results from the procedure may, however, not always look natural. Your breasts will be rounder and less droopy than natural breasts of a considerable size.
Here are some questions women ask about the augmentation procedure.
Who can get the surgery?
If you are opting for the saline implants, you must know that you are required to be a minimum of 18 years of age.
How much does the augmentation procedure cost?
The cost of the implants varies from individual to individual as also from one area to another. The cost will also include the charges for the facility where the surgery is performed, the fee of the surgeon and anesthesia charges. You must also know what type and style of breast implants will be used.
Is the augmentation procedure painful?
The intensity and duration of the pain also varies from one woman to another. Post your surgery, you may feel tired and sore for a few days. Most women return to their normal activities within 3 to 4 days and do not feel much pain.
How long does the augmentation procedure take?
Usually, breast augmentation takes about 1 to 2 hours for completion. This time depends on the augmentation technique that your surgeon uses and the kind of anesthesia which is used during your procedure.
Are women with implants at a higher risk of cancer?
There is no medical evidence which substantiates that implants are linked to a higher cancer rate.
Why is the augmentation procedure performed?
Most women who opt for the augmentation procedure are those who feel their current breast size is smaller and not in proportion with the rest of their body. In some cases, breasts may have developed unevenly and augmentation will help address this problem. Some women also decide to undergo the procedure when their breasts shrink due to pregnancy or they just want to restore their breast size after childbirth, weight loss or aging. Women also turn to augmentation when they have had cancer and undergone mastectomy; and they want reconstruction of the breasts.
