The size, shape, and height of a woman’s breasts are largely dictated by genetics, diet and exercise habits. Pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations and age can also impact these factors, but these changes are not predictable and they certainly aren’t the same for every woman. If a woman is at a healthy, stable weight and exercises frequently, there’s little else she can do herself to change her bust. Luckily, a breast augmentation can help add fullness and allow you to get the physique you desire. If you’re interested in a breast augmentation in Palm Beach, call us today at Palms Wellington Plastic Surgery!
The Options for Adding Fullness
There are several different approaches a surgeon can use to give you a fuller bust. Fat transfer can make your breasts larger and firmer, but you will need to have body fat elsewhere on your body to harvest. Implants, made of either silicone or saline, are an extremely popular option. Finally, if you have plenty of breast tissue that has sagged over time, a breast lift can restore fullness by moving the breast tissue higher and removing excess skin. Your surgeon will carefully assess your case and discuss your options with you.
Preparing for Surgery
Breast augmentation is the most popular cosmetic surgery in North America and is tolerated well by most people in Palm Beach. With that said, there are steps you can take to lower your risk of complications and help your body heal uneventfully. Before surgery, you want to be as healthy as possible. Ideally, you should be at a stable, healthy weight and have a dedicated exercise program. If you smoke or drink habitually, you will need to stop at least three months before your surgery. You will also want to stop any recreational drug use, as using them can greatly reduce your ability to heal.
Your Future Family Planning
No discussion of breast augmentation is complete without addressing the possible future impact of your decision. Breast surgery has absolutely no effect on your ability to get pregnant and carry a healthy baby to full term. What it can do, however, is destroy your ability to breastfeed in the future. Some women experience no changes and are able to lactate from both breasts. Some women may only be able to lactate from one of their breasts, while others will find they are unable to lactate at all. If you feel very strongly about breastfeeding in the future, you may want to shelve your breast augmentation until your family is complete.
