You may have read or heard about the things that need to be considered before getting breast implants. FIrst, you need to think about implant type and size, implant placement and surgical incisions. And there’s the matter on choosing the right plastic surgeon where you have to consider experience, credentials, communications skills, and your level of comfort during the personal consultation.
Yet before you go all through of the aforementioned, there is one crucial component to consider if you’re seriously contemplating about having breast implants — why are you having them in the first place?
Examining Your Reasons and Expectations
The decision to have breast augmentation should not be taken lightly. By and large, you should not choose to have the procedure unless you have carefully figured out your motivation in wanting to have your breasts enhanced with implants. Like all forms of plastic surgery, there is no guarantee that breast implants can lead you towards the road to perfection. Keep in mind that plastic surgery will not help you get your ex back or rekindle a relationship gone stale. On a whole, breast augmentation is all about improvement rather than creating perfection.
Moreover, you might also want to assess your expectations of the procedure. It is unreasonable to expect that you’ll wake up with the perfect pair of breasts immediately after surgery. The truth is you’ll wake up with significant pain, swelling, and bruising hours following surgery. It may take months before the outcomes you want to see will materialize. Lastly, it is important to note that each person is unique — from genetics to lifestyle habits — and not everyone will achieve results at the same rate.
