What you Need to Know Before Getting a Breast Enlargement

If you’re constantly seeing parts of yourself that you don’t like or can’t wait to change, cosmetic surgery is the thing you need to start loving the skin you’re in. Breast enlargement is a huge part of cosmetic surgery. Whether you’re looking to put your flat-chested days behind you or just want a little extra boost to feel stunning and confident, there’s a treatment perfect for you.

But, before you jump right in, there are a few things you need to know about breast enlargement. To help you on your way, we’ve put the top 4 into this handy guide here.

1 Your implants will need to be replaced.

Breast implants don’t last forever and 25% of women will need another surgery after 10 years.

This is is because, over time, your impact can leak or form something called a “scar shell”, which changes the shape of your implant.

Not to mention, your body and tastes will naturally change over time. So if you become pregnant, have a dramatic weight change or just want something else, it won’t be long before you want your second appointment.

2 You can’t undergo a dramatic change all at once

Want to go straight from flat chested to Dolly Parton? Sorry – but this won’t happen all at once.

Your surgeon will always recommend going up a couple of cup sizes at a time, so you might need several procedures and a few years before your dream is a reality.

This is for safety and to let your skin and body heal and adapt to the changes so that when you do reach your perfect size your body is ready and willing to flaunt it.

3 The placement makes a huge difference

Generally, implants can be placed below or above the muscle tissue in your chest. This makes a difference to the finished results.

Most surgeons will recommend the implant be placed below the muscle tissue. This gives an overall more natural look and feel. It can also prevent “scar shells” from forming, making the implant last longer.

However, it also takes longer to heal. Those who have implants placed on top will be back to work within a week (if not still a little sore!)

4 Your breasts will feel different

Breast implant technology has come a long way – but they still aren’t the real thing. So get prepared for your breasts to feel different from normal breast tissue. This feeling will be more noticeable in people who are naturally flat-chested and can be helped by the placement of the implant. Those that are placed below the muscle will be more natural, but will still feel slightly strange at first.

Research before you commit

With any cosmetic surgery, you need to do your research. Find a surgeon that is certified and trustworthy and take the time to fully discuss and understand your options before any procedure.
