Are You Emotionally Ready for Breast Implants?

Before And After Breast ImplantsBefore delving into the logistical aspects of preparation, take a moment to reflect on your emotional readiness for breast implants. Consider your motivations, expectations, and your overall physical and mental health. A candid assessment of your desires and commitment will ensure that you approach this procedure with realistic expectations and a confident mindset.

As you continue considering breast augmentation and breast implants, be sure to conduct your own research on the procedure as well. You’ll want to find the right plastic surgeon who can achieve the changes you’re looking for and have a good understanding of the steps required.

Breast Implants Before and After: Critical Steps

Step 1: Decide if you’re ready.

Ensure your decision aligns with your personal goals and lifestyle. Assess your motivations and be prepared for a positive transformation.

Step 2: Research plastic surgeons.

Thoroughly research board certified plastic surgeons with expertise in breast augmentation. Read reviews, view before and after photos, and ensure you choose a surgeon who has a strong track record of patient satisfaction.

Step 3: Attend consultation appointments.

Consultations are crucial. Discuss your goals, ask questions, and gain insights into the procedure, recovery, and potential outcomes.

Step 4: Select a surgeon and choose your implants.

It’s important that you’re choosing your plastic surgeon based on their experience, abilities, and bedside manner. You want to feel comfortable with them and trust them.

Work with your surgeon to select implants that complement your body proportions and desired outcome.

Step 5: Attend to your physical well-being.

Leading up to the plastic surgery itself, prioritize your health with a balanced diet, regular exercise, and staying hydrated.

Step 6: Mentally prepare for breast augmentation surgery.

Surgery can be stressful. Patients who cultivate a positive mindset and manage their anxieties with healthy coping strategies will do the best before, during, and after surgery. Be sure to stay informed, visualize positive outcomes, and engage in relaxation techniques for the body and mind.

Step 7: Prepare for your recovery.

Create a comfortable space at home, arrange for assistance during your recovery, and have all necessary supplies ready. Fortunately, your breast augmentation recovery week by week can go swiftly in most cases. Simply follow your surgeon’s directions, get plenty of rest, make healthy choices, and keep looking forward.

Breast Augmentation Preparation: Commonly Asked Questions

How much do breast implants cost?

Each person who undergoes surgery on their breasts is unique, so breast implant costs vary widely based on factors such as location, surgeon expertise, and implant type. For all women, the total cost of breast augmentation will include surgeon fees, anesthesia costs, facility costs, and implant expenses.

Is a breast lift with implants before and after the same as a breast lift alone?

In essence, the key difference lies in the incorporation of implants in the breast lift process. While a breast lift alone focuses on reshaping existing tissue, a breast lift with implants offers the opportunity to enhance both breast implant  size and contour. Ultimately, the choice between the two approaches depends on your specific aesthetic goals and the recommendations of a skilled plastic surgeon.

When will I see my results after breast augmentation?

While initial results will be visible after swelling subsides in a few weeks, the full outcome can take several months as your body adjusts and heals.

Will I have a breast implant scar?

Your body’s ability to heal is incredible, and incision scars are inevitable. Still, skilled plastic surgeons will always place scars as strategically as possible for minimal visibility. Breast implant scar management techniques can further improve their appearance over time.

Could you get breast implants before and after pregnancy?

Breast implants are compatible with pregnancy, but it’s recommended to wait until after you’ve completed your family to ensure stable results. Women who plan to have children should consult with their plastic surgeon before moving forward.

Can you nurse if you have breast implants?

Many patients who plan to continue to nurse after having children in the future hesitate to consider breast implants because they are worried about how nursing will go. Although sometimes women can breastfeed with implants, this is a legitimate concern as breast implants before and after nursing can also cause problems in some cases.

What’s key is to consider your options carefully. Waiting to get implants until you’re done having children is best. If you have implants and are pregnant and would like to nurse, talk with your surgeon and doctor to learn about your options.
