Patients who want a greater size and contour to the breasts often turn to breast augmentation to achieve their desired look. Breast enhancement surgery can be performed in a number of ways by a board-certified and experienced plastic surgeon.
Breast implants can be placed in the breasts to provide a greater amount of augmentation. The increase in size depends on the size of the implants that are placed by the surgeon. The breasts can also be enhanced by the transfer of fat into the breasts. The fat is removed from another part of the body using liposuction to target extra and/or stubborn fat. The fat that is removed is then processed and purified before it is injected into the breasts.
While the amount of recovery time for fat transfer can be anywhere from four to six weeks, the recovery from breast implant surgery might take a little more time since it is a major surgery. No matter which type of breast augmentation surgery is performed, here are some tips you should know before you make the final decision to have breast augmentation using breast implants.
Before you make the final decision to have breast augmentation surgery, schedule a consultation appointment with your doctor of choice. The surgeon will discuss your reasons for wanting to enhance the breasts and will also share your various options for achieving the desired results. It is important for you to ask any questions you have in mind during this appointment. The doctor will address any questions, concerns, or fears you have about the procedure as well as the recovery period. The more information you have in advance of the placement of breast implants or the transfer of fat into the breasts, the better educated you will be when considering which type of breast augmentation is best for you.
