Breast Augmentation has tremendously grown in popularity in Dubai and around the world over the last decade. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), more than 1.5 million women from across the world went under the knife in 2013-14 to get their breasts enhanced, over 3 Lac in the United States alone.
If you are also not satisfied with your breast size or volume, breast augmentation may be worth considering. However, there are some things that you should know beforehand to prepare yourself for the surgery in a better way. With advancements in technology, breast implant surgery is a quite safe and effective procedure that rarely causes any undesirable complications. But preparing yourself for the surgery allows you to enjoy a smooth recovery and get the most out of the procedure.
Type of breast implants:
When you go for the initial consultation, be prepared for the question, which implants do you want to have? Breast implants are primarily divided into two types, Saline implants and Silicone implants. Saline implants have enjoyed more demand as compared to their silicone counterparts, just because people and the surgeons believe they are safer than silicone implants. The latter on the other hand look and feel more natural. So, if you don’t want to take risks, go for saline implants, and if you want a more natural look and feel, silicone implants may be the right choice.
Going under general anesthesia is not a joke:
Breast augmentation is performed under general anesthesia and going under anesthesia is not a joke, as it brings certain risks and complications, which can be fatal, but this is very rare. Nausea and vomiting are two most common side effects of anesthesia. Serious side effects include heart attack and stroke, which can cause death as well.
It will hurt a lot:
Expect your breasts to remain sore for at least a month. Your surgeon may advise you to wait for 4 to 5 weeks before physical contact with the breasts will be allowed. Operated breasts remain swollen and bruised for several weeks. Your doctor will prescribe you different antibiotics and painkillers to manage the pain and soreness. Follow your surgeon’s pre and post-op instructions closely to avoid any unwanted complications.
Breast Implants don’t last a lifetime:
Breast Implants are not designed to last a lifetime. The wear and tear in your life does take toll on the implants. The longer the implants stay in your body, the higher the risk of rupture they carry. These man-made prosthesis need to be replaced at the ten year mark.
Finding the right plastic surgeon is crucial:
Efficacy and safety of the surgery depends a lot on the experience and expertise of the plastic surgeon performing the procedure. The key to a successful surgery is finding the right doctor. Go for a surgeon who is not only board-certified but also has at least 5-year experience of inserting breast implants in the female breasts. Opting for a board-certified surgeon also reduces the possibility of developing unwanted side effects.
