Mammoplasty is one of the most popular aesthetic plastic surgeries among women of any age. We will tell you what to consider if you seriously think about changing the shape or size of your breast.
Before getting a boob job, it is important to examine the issue. The plastic surgeon at Confidence Cosmetic Surgery Glasgow told us about the choice of a doctor, the size of the implants and the possible consequences of the operation.
8 Things You Should Know Before Getting a Boob Job
Carefully choose a doctor
Sometimes you go to the doctor’s office and you understand right away: no, it’s not a doctor for me. Even if this is a star doctor, even if you are offered special conditions, you turn around and leave. Mammoplasty is an operation, not a simple procedure. This means that the doctor should be chosen carefully. He should be a professional and a pleasant person. Yes, the question of a new breast is very delicate. It is much easier to discuss it with the doctor with whom you feel relaxed and calm. By the way, this attitude largely determines the success of the operation.
Assess your constitution
Admit it, a slender girl with a breast of the fourth size is a bust… The size of the new breast should be discussed with a doctor: he will show you his work so that you can evaluate different breast sizes in girls of your body type. By the way, in pursuit of naturalness, many young ladies tend to drop-shaped implants. But, perhaps, based on the anatomical shape of the breast, you will look more organically with round implants. Start from your preferences, but listen to the opinion of the surgeon. When selecting implants, the doctor will not only take into account your wishes, but also the structure of your chest, your usual posture and, of course, the original breast.
You may need skin tightening
Alas, not only women who gave birth and breastfed may need skin tightening. Sometimes this correction is necessary for girls with a conical shape of the breast or with severe asymmetry of the mammary glands. Without this manipulation, the result will perfect in all the above cases. If you decide to have surgery after childbirth, then you can correct a large excess of skin using two options: either by placing a large implant in size, which sometimes looks extremely unaesthetic (and too heavy) or by combining a breast shape correction with a tightening.
Decide whether you will give birth and feed
Despite the fact that breastfeeding is preserved with any technique of breast enlargement, the installation of an implant through an incision in the nipple areola (periareolar method) disrupts the integrity of the milk duct. And this may make it difficult to feed the baby in the future. If the doctor decides to perform the operation through an incision under the breast (submammar method) or through an incision in the armpit area (axillary method), then you have nothing to worry about!
Be prepared for two operations
It may be worthwhile to postpone a breast augmentation if you have a “boyish breast”. If you dream of a third size with such forms, then you will have to do it in two stages. First, you will install implants of a small size, and then, when the skin stretches a little, they will be replaced by larger ones. After the birth of a baby, the breast increases in volume in a natural way, which means that such a multi-pass will not be needed to correct its shape afterwards.
Do not be tempted by too low prices
“Breast enlargement for £1,000 in Glasgow…” You can find such ads on the Internet. Of course, you have a chance to get an excellent result for this money, but… Before you sign an agreement with the clinic, be sure of the qualifications of the surgeon, and also ask what implants will be used. It happens that when new models are released, manufacturers sell them at very low prices due to the lack of clinical studies. In fact, you will be a member of an experimental group… In this case, the result may be unpredictable.
Your life activity will decrease
For a while, of course… In the first week after surgery, even doing simple movements can be difficult for you. It will be difficult to perform household activities related to the tension of the muscles of the arms and breast. Besides, the effect of general anesthesia will affect your condition a few days: drowsiness, apathy, weakness… You will have to forget about sports for at least a couple of months. However, you will be allowed to swim.
Be ready for the rehabilitation period
You will wear special underwear for a month. It is, by the way, quite comfortable and even quite sexy. You will only have to sleep on your back for a week: if you turn on your side, you wake up in the morning with an asymmetrical bust. You can not raise your arms above shoulder level for two weeks – the implants can simply move. You will have to forget about the bath, sauna and other heating procedures for six months. All the above limitations are necessary in order to form a connective tissue capsule around the implant, and you could feel the artificial breast as your own.
