Know This Before Your Breast Augmentation

Are you considering breast augmentation? Like any elective cosmetic procedure, it is common to need reassurance and comfort that you are making the right choice. In doing so, it’s important to learn all you can about to what to expect with breast surgery. Here are five things you need to know before going into your procedure to prevent any regret or uncertainty:

#1 Preparation Is Important

What you do before your surgery to prepare can have a big impact on how well (and fast) you recover afterwards. Be mindful of the following pre-surgery recommendations:

  • Quit smoking and avoid alcohol
  • Hydrate and fuel your body with nutrient-rich foods for healing
  • Set up logistics for surgery day (childcare, a ride home from surgery)
  • Prepare a place to recover at home with your essentials nearby

#2 Your Immediate Results are Not Your Permanent Results

Don’t be misled or concerned by the initial reveal of your breast augmentation. Your implants will look very different the first few weeks after surgery. They are often much bigger due to temporary swelling, and their “high and tight” position is normal before they settle and soften. Be patient and give it a couple of months before judging your breast augmentation results.

#3 A Breast Lift May be Needed

Many women seek breast augmentation after pregnancy or weight loss to restore fullness to sagging or stretched out breasts. It is not uncommon, however, for a breast lift to be needed alongside breast implants to raise and tighten the skin and properly address drooping. While every woman is different, it is best to be aware that breast augmentation alone may not bring the results that you want.

#4 You Can Finance Your Breast Augmentation

Health insurance typically does not cover cosmetic procedures like breast augmentation. However, there are ways to make this surgery more affordable. Instead of opting for a cheaper, lower-quality plastic surgery practice, select the provider you deserve and finance your breast augmentation with the flexible payment plans of CareCredit®.

Last but not least, don’t underestimate the influence your surgeon has on your experience and results. When electing breast augmentation, you can trust Dr. Kenrick Spence.

I have been a patient of Dr. Spence twice now. I didn't hesitate to contact him when I was ready to move forward with my adominoplasty. It has been a long and, at times, rough recovery but Dr. Spence and his staff have been right by my side every step of the way.
