The average woman will have insecurities over her breasts. Breast Augmentation is a popular cosmetic surgery that allows women to feel more comfortable in their skin by a procedure that balances the proportion between the breast and the body, as well as gaining a shapelier contour.
Breast Augmentation involves a very small incision below the breast, which is performed under General Anesthetic, that allows the surgeon to insert a saline or silicone implant below or over the muscle of the breast. Most often, the incision leaves only the smallest of scar in the shape of a fine line, this is barely noticeable and will ensure the breasts appear natural.
Once the procedure has been completed, you will be provided a support bra for your breasts. You will feel some discomfort and even pressure within the first 24-48 hours. However, communication is key, if you let your surgeon know that you are feeling discomfort, there is medication that can be prescribed by your surgeon to alleviate your pains. Avoid medications such as Aspirin as these can cause bleeding.
Complications are rare and few between, but it is your responsibility to research the risks, just as it is your surgeon’s responsibility to fully inform you of the risks. There can be minor complications that are more common such as numbness of the nipple which can last up to six months. Another minor risk is swelling from the surgery can last for a couple of weeks. To manage the pain following the surgery, it is recommended that you take pain killers, but make sure this has been confirmed with your surgeon, before you take any.
Rarer complications may include ruptures or scar tissue that can result in deformation of the breasts.
