10 Things You Need to Know About Breast Enhancement Surgery

Breast augmentation is a life-changing surgery. You can experience the return of your self confidence, you can feel more feminine, younger, and yes, sexier. Whatever it is that's your driving force to do this.

The satisfaction level for this operation is very high. But you need to know some imporatnt things about this operation, so I've put together my list of 10 things you need to know.

  • Breast enhancement surgery is a real operation.
  • There are risks with all surgery, that include (but are not limited to):
    • Bleeding
    • Infection
    • Fluid collection
    • Scars that don't look good
    • Numbness of an area of the breast or of part or all of the nipple
    • Asymmetry (one side looks different from the other)
    • Tightening of the scar tissue that naturally forms around the implant (capsular)
  • These risks are actually pretty low.
  • The operation is usually (though not always - every one of us is unique!) painless. The sensation is often described as the same tightness as when the milk "comes in" after childbirth.
  • Most women are comfortably able to go out to dinner the night of surgery, or even go shopping!
  • The key to this level of comfort is in controlling bleeding and very gentle handling of the tissues when performing the surgery.
  • Breast enhancement surgery is NOT a one-time operation. You are committing yourself to at least one more operation in your lifetime relating to your implants.
  • Any operation can result in the types of complications I just mentioned. Any and all of the complications may result in additional surgery, time off from work or usual activities and expense to you.
  • After surgery, I do not recommend breast massage, and you will not leave the surgery theater with binders, wraps or a bra. You will be instructed about how to do movement to hasten the recovery of your muscles.
  • While we expect a fairly quick return to normal activites, it all depends on what "normal" is for you.

So, while there are a lot more things we will need to discuss in person, I thought you would really benefit from learning about these 10 to start with.
