There are important factors to consider when deciding upon a breast augmentation surgery, also known as an augmentation mammoplasty. Your health, reasons for desiring an augmentation, and lifestyle are all factors in deciding whether a “boob job” is right for you. Never allow another person to talk you into having life altering surgery. This should be a decision based on your desire for a fuller profile, not on the expectations of anyone else.
Like any surgery, breast augmentation puts a strain on your body. The immune system works to fight off any potential infection, and your body must undergo the work off healing after the surgery. Therefore, it’s important that you’re in good physical condition before undergoing the procedure. Your surgeon will discuss your medical history with you, including important factors like whether you’re a smoker, and whether your current weight is stable.
Your medical team will work with you to ensure you understand the potential and limitations of your augmentation surgery. Patients who undergo the surgery with realistic expectations are far more likely to be satisfied with the outcome. Being properly motivated for the surgery will help you follow the surgeon’s directions post-op.
Once you know what to expect and decide upon the goals you wish to meet with your surgery, it’s time to schedule a consultation. During the consultation, the surgeon can determine if you’re a good candidate for the procedure, and you can have your questions answered. Be sure to talk to your surgeon about your lifestyle and activity levels, as they will affect the potential options for your surgery. Over 90% of breast augmentation patients are satisfied with their surgery a year later. Careful preparation contributes to your happiness with the outcome of your procedure.
