Breast augmentation surgery is the surgical placement of breast implants to increase fullness and improve symmetry of the breasts, or to restore breast volume that is lost after weight reduction or pregnancy. Not only does breast augmentation change the appearance of your breasts, but it can help improve the balance of your figure and enhance your self esteem.
Often, someone might choose this procedure if they’re looking to:
- Enlarge naturally small breasts (typically hereditary)
- Restore breast volume following pregnancy or weight loss
- Achieve symmetry when breasts are disproportionate in size and shape
Things to consider
As with any surgery, there are things you should consider prior to undergoing this procedure.
Most insurance plans do not cover breast augmentation costs, related complications or additional surgeries to revise the appearance of your breasts. Some carriers even exclude breast diseases in patients who have implants. Make sure that you review your policy in advance so that you’re fully aware of the financial investment involved.
- This is a very personal procedure. Ask yourself why you want to have this done and make sure that you’re doing it for yourself rather than for someone else or to fit the mold of an “ideal image.”
- There are two different types of implants, silicone and saline, both of which are available in different types, shapes and sizes. Dr. Saha will help you determine which option is the best one for you.
- There are also different types of incisions. Dr. Saha will review your options with you, and help you determine the best approach.
- Breast augmentation is a major surgical procedure. Your safety and the success of the procedure depends greatly upon your level of honesty during your consultation. Be prepared to have a meaningful and candid discussion during your appointments with Dr. Saha.
- Make it a priority to discuss the potential risks and complications with your physician so that you can make an informed decision about whether or not the benefits outweigh the risks.
- Breast implants aren’t guaranteed to last a lifetime. Future procedures may be required to replace one or both implants.
- Pregnancy, weight loss and menopause my change the appearance of augmented breasts.
- Recovery times differ, but you can resume exercise and normal activity at the direction of your surgeon.
