Breast Augmentation Information

Breast Augmentation Today

by Dennis Conner

Breast augmentation will help women change the size and shape of their breasts, or can help make both breasts match better. When considering whether or not you are going to get your breasts augmented, you need to remember these few things:

First, you need to get a consultation. If you have a regular family doctor, call and ask for a recommendation. Your doctor is more likely to know a surgeon who is well qualified and will be able to get you in contact with him or her sooner.

When you find the doctor you want to do the breast augmentation on you, make many consultations before the surgery. It is very important that both you and your doctor know exactly what you want and how much it will costs. Discussing in detail everything before hand will make you more comfortable with the procedure, and will save a lot of time and stress. Also be sure to talk about all the risks involved and tell your surgeon about any health or medical conditions you have.

Many women are getting their breasts augmented. Some want to look better to help with their self-esteem while other may want to help repair their breasts after breast cancer. For whatever reason, it is always good to know everything about any medical procedure you're considering.

Breast augmentation is a surgery that is able to change your breasts size and/or shape. This surgery is not for those who are looking for something to solve a problem or problems in their lives. Also, those who have unrealistic expectations might be disappointed afterwards. Talk with your doctor beforehand and let him know your expectations and see if they are attainable.

There was a lot of negative media towards breast augmentation because of the health complications associated with the silicone implants. The silicone implants are no longer used. Now, the only approved implants are saline implants. Saline is a natural product that is found in your body and any leakage that may happen, would not be harmful or toxic to you.

As with all surgeries, there are risks involved. With breast augmentation, these risks can be anything from anesthesia problems to infections. A common complication is a loss of sensation in your breasts which could lead to problems with breastfeeding in the future.

Looking at the long term for women who undergo breast augmentation is that they will have to have at least one more surgery in the next ten years after their initial breast surgery. There haven't been any studies done to show how long breast implants last, but there have been cases where implants have broken due to age.

Breast augmentation is expensive, and most insurance companies will not pay for any of it. This is because the insurance companies consider breast implants an elective surgery. And if after the surgery, the results are not what you expected, it will cost you even more money and additional pain.
