Breast augmentation has been the number one plastic surgery among women for seven years. Rightfully so, many women are wondering what they can do help in the process and obtain the best results possible.
Of course, choosing to have your breast surgery performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon is the first and most critical step, there are three tips you can make to ensuring you get exactly what is best for you and your breasts.
#1 Don’t Ask Your Surgeon for a Celebrity’s Breasts
Most of us have experienced a bad haircut. More than likely you went armed to your stylist with an image of your “perfect hair style” and when all was said and done, it didn’t quite look the same on you. This can also happen when going into your plastic surgeon’s office for your breast augmentation consultation.
Instead of trying to have your surgeon attempt to imitate an image of a celebrity or model whose breasts you like, your surgeon will work with you on size, placement, and type of breast implant along with personal factors such as size of your rib cage and breast width and shoulder width.
#2 Choose the Most Natural-Looking Implant as Possible
Choosing the right implants can help maintain a natural appearance for your breasts.
- Implants that are too big can create a wide and bony gap between your breasts.
- Oversized implants can also cause your breasts to look unnatural when lying on your back because they may not fall naturally to the sides.
- Some implants can make your breasts look too rounded or as full on top as they are on the bottom when seen in profile.
To maintain a natural appearance, your plastic surgeon will help you choose the right kind of implant and size to help you achieve the natural look that you desire.
#3 Post-Surgery Maintenance
After your breast augmentation, there are several things that you can do to help maintain them. Sun exposure breaks down collagen and skin elasticity which may lead to drooping of the breasts overtime. While implants do not make the breasts any more vulnerable to sagging, the existing natural breast tissue must still be protected from excessive sun exposure by covering up and using sunscreen.
