Once you have the idea of having breast implants, very many thoughts and doubts may cross our mind. You may be wondering whether the procedure will work, how much it will cost you, the way it is done, whether it is a good decision or whether you will have any regrets. It is normal to have all these questions in your mind.
Breast implants are additions that are put in your breast to enhance its shape or size. Celebrities have used them for a long time to enhance their look. In the past, these procedures were very expensive, and only the ‘chosen few’ could afford them. This is why celebrities were known to be the most popular fans. Modern medicine however, has enabled millions of people across the world to enjoy the procedures.
Breast implants are not necessarily a cosmetic procedure, since they are used for medical reasons as well. If you have had your breast removed because of cancer or any other deformity, breast implants can restore you back to the way you were. It is also used on trauma accident patients who may have lacerated or burnt breasts. They are also used for proportion if one breast is larger or a different shape from the other.
- Before going for the surgery
Make sure that you have decided to have the surgery for the right reasons. Do not succumb to peer pressure or ridicule and decide that you want the surgery. You must not go to a surgeon unless you are sure that he knows what he is doing. Do your research well by checking his credentials, asking for testimonials and sampling his work.
Make sure that you understand the surgery from the preparation, procedure, and the healing process. Some people go for the procedure without knowing how it will come out, and they end up with disappointment. Ask the surgeon about the outcome and what you should expect during the healing process. It is also good to go through some pictures of what you would like to have at the end of the surgery.
- Take care of your body prior to the surgery
You will have to be very careful with your health so that you can have enough strength for a quick healing process. If you are on any drug addictions, you are advised to quit prior to the surgery. This will protect you from; excessive bleeding, infection, bruising or blood clots. Eat healthy food so that you can recover faster.
- After the procedure
Make sure that you take your medication. Do not engage in vigorous activity before you heal completely. Visit your surgeon for follow up procedures and follow his or her instructions to the letter. Do not be eager to see results in one day, sometimes the results take time.
