A breast augmentation is a huge decision for a woman to make. While some are happy with the size of their chest, others want to have a more feminine silhouette that a breast augmentation can provide. There are a few things to know before going through with the surgery that should be discussed with your plastic surgeon.

Breast Augmentation Procedure

First, you will learn that there are several different types of ways you can have a breast augmentation. This will affect what type of scar you will have and how visible it is to anyone who you are intimate with. A traditional breast augmentation will leave a scar on the breast but there is a minimally invasive surgery that allows the surgery to be more discreet by having a small scar on your armpit.

You will also have to choose what type of breast implants in Houston you want to use with your breast augmentation. Also, many plastic surgeons will recommend getting a breast lift while you are getting a breast augmentation to have optimal results. While you can easily find information online to help you decide these things, it is highly recommended to speak with a breast augmentation plastic surgeon so you can ask questions about anything you might have in order to make an informed decision.

Post Breast Augmentation

It must be said that breast implants are not something you can have and then not think anything about for the rest of your life. You may need surgery in the future to replace an implant. You must take care of your breasts in order to prolong the life of a breast implant and know that you will be expected to take time off from work in order to recover from breast augmentation surgery. Your Houston plastic surgeon will tell you what you can and cannot do after surgery, and what to do between checkups to ensure that your breast implants are not at risk of breaking or leaking.
