Breast augmentation is perennially one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the country. Our patients who choose to undergo breast augmentation in Kalispell aren’t celebrities, they’re real people. Many of our patients are moms, grandmothers, businesswomen, teachers, etc. and they all have unique, personal reasons for wanting breast enhancement. In this post we will discuss the benefits of breast augmentation and some ideas to reflect on if you’re considering the procedure.
You are the boss when getting a breast augmentation. During consultation, you will work with your surgeon to create a treatment plan that fits you. It will incorporate your aesthetic desires, lifestyle, body type, and of course safety. You have the ability to truly customize how your breasts will look.
Not only does breast augmentation change you physically, but also can be a catalyst for emotional change. The procedure can help you regain self-esteem, while promoting a positive body image. Many patients report emotional satisfaction post-surgery. Finally taking the plunge and getting the breast procedure that you’ve always wanted can affect both body and mind.
More obviously, breast augmentation can correct issues that have bothered you as you’ve gotten older. Breasts can be dramatically affected by aging, weight fluctuations, and pregnancy. A breast augmentation combined with a breast lift can be a great way to regain youthful contours and reshape sagging or deflated breasts.
The results from a breast augmentation are long-lasting and natural-looking. Patients have 3 different options for discreet incisions: inframammary, periareolar, and transaxillary—all of which are very well-concealed. You also have options for size, shape, placement, and texture for results that truly blend with your body. Implant manufacturers typically offer a 10-year warranty on implants, but many women have the same implants for much longer.
Board certification is important. Plastic surgery, or any medical treatment, is not something to take lightly. Although breast surgery rarely has serious complications, it is important to find a skilled and experienced surgeon to achieve an optimal outcome. If your surgeon is not certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons, they have not demonstrated proficiency in procedures such as breast augmentation.
Like any and all surgeries, safety is paramount. This is why you must be open and honest with your surgeon. Good communication facilitates improved safety through your surgical process. It is also vital to follow your surgeon’s pre-op and post-op instructions. This helps ensure your procedure and recovery will go smoothly.
In the end, determine what is best for you, and only you. You should not be getting this procedure for any other person. If it makes you happy, go for it—it’s your body. You will be the one going in for surgery, going through recovery, and living with the results.
