Christmas is behind us, and we are embarking on the New Year with plenty of optimism and opportunity. We want this to be a great year – better than years past. For many women, looking good is also about feeling good. That’s why breast augmentation is one of the most popular procedures in the world: because of the confidence it brings.
And what could be better than feeling confident in everything you wear – from the new fall fashions to the more daring summer wear. Rather than covering up, women can improve their look with a curvier new figure. It’s why many women who have been thinking about improving their breast appearance are scheduling their consultation now. When summer does arrive, they will be ready for their warm-weather attire with a youthful and firm breasts.
What is Breast Augmentation
Breast Augmentation is a surgical procedure that uses breast implants to enhance the size, shape, and contour of a women’s breasts. Many women choose this breast surgery to correct the effects of pregnancy and weight fluctuations. Others choose the procedure because they want larger breasts or breasts that are symmetrical. Whatever the reason, the goal is to look and feel more feminine.
Today, breast augmentation’s advanced products and techniques deliver natural results and allow the surgeon to tailor the procedure to the patient’s unique figure. With a wide selection of implant types, shapes, and sizes, breast implants are more personalized than in years past. When a woman can enhance her breast appearance to fit her distinctive body, they’re usually more likely to be satisfied with the procedure.
Add a Breast Lift
Many women over the age of 40 need a breast lift. Many women under 40 who have suffered the effects of pregnancy and breastfeeding could also use a breast lift. When their nipples are below their natural breast crease, patients should consider this procedure.
Many patients combine a breast lift with breast augmentation surgery. This combination will provide breasts which have a youthful firmness and shape.
The initial step in the breast augmentation process is to schedule your consultation with Dr. Ben Lee. He is a board-certified surgeon with extensive experience in delivering patients the breasts of their dreams. Dr. Lee will examine you and provide advice and information about the multiple options available.
With a wide selection of implants to choose from, Dr. Lee will recommend which type will be best suited for your body. He will also explain the different incision locations and implant placement options. You will have the opportunity to realize just how these implants will improve your body contour with before and after photos and computer projections. We will also provide a detailed cost analysis.
During your consultation, you should be willing to discuss:
- History of breast cancer within the family with mammograms and previous biopsy results
- Tobacco, alcohol, and drug use history, current medications and herbal supplements
- Previous medical procedures, drug allergies, and medical conditions
- Breast measurements including shape and size, nipple placement, and skin quality
- A course of treatment and recommendations
- Likely outcomes and any potential complications and risks
Your consultation is a great time to ask Dr. Lee questions. It’s critical to understand all facets of your breast augmentation procedure. It’s understandable to be anxious, whether it’s preoperative stress or excitement for your anticipated new appearance. Don’t hesitate to discuss your state of mind with Dr. Lee.
After surgery, you will need time to recover and heal. You will realize results immediately, but bruising and swelling need about three weeks to subside. Incisions will fade over time, and by summer they should be close to invisible. Add the fact the incisions are hidden; this summer should be a great time to reveal your new curvy outline.
Breast Augmentation Results
While a breast augmentation can yield larger breasts right away, the results may take a few weeks to fully appear as the swelling diminishes. Some of our patients need to wear a sports bra to help shape their breasts, especially if they have small breasts to start or underlying asymmetry. Incision lines may take months to fade.
To achieve optimal breast augmentation results, follow Dr. Lee’s post-operative instructions and return for follow-up visits.
