Breast Augmentation Surgery Encompasses Multiple Variables
Choosing the size of the implant to be inserted is a very personal decision, but it’s difficult for women to estimate how they’ll look simply by holding a form up to their chest. The same size implant will appear completely different on an individual who is five feet tall than it will on someone who is six feet tall.
There are multiple variables to be considered. Smooth and textured implants are offered, round and teardrop shapes, and saline and gel filled inserts. The bottom line of breast augmentation is that women will determine their satisfaction based on the chosen implant.
Just as natural breasts have a slight variation in size and appearance, so will augmented breasts. These asymmetries are amplified on those with a thinner body frame. The thickness and fitness of the pectoral muscle on which the implants rest will be a factor in their post-augmentation appearance. Any sagging that has occurred after breast feeding will also play a role.
Many patients become fixated on attaining a specific bra size instead of concentrating on their overall look. Nearly 55 percent of women return after a breast augmentation procedure to have the size of the implant down-sized.
Anyone considering augmentation surgery should be aware that they can breastfeed with no problem, but it will have no impact on their risk of developing breast cancer. Many patients have reported that it’s much easier to detect lumps during self-examination after they have the surgery. There are some serious conditions that can result from breast augmentation and these should be thoroughly explained by the selected surgeon.
Women undertake augmentation for a variety of reasons ranging from purely cosmetic to reconstruction following cancer or a mastectomy. Anyone considering the procedure should seek a surgeon with extensive experience and they shouldn’t be afraid to ask questions or view examples of his/her work.
