Considering breast augmentation? Here are 7 important things you need to know.
posted by: Mile High Mamas
The choice to undergo breast surgery, or any cosmetic procedure, is deeply personal. And for the right person, it can also be totally rewarding. As you do your research, you likely have found that there’s no shortage of information online—but it sure can be time-consuming to parse what’s useful (and factual) from what isn’t.
To guide you on this journey toward renewed confidence, Denver board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gregory Buford has published a free, one-stop guide with all the information you need. Here are 7 of our favorite takeaways from The Boob Job Bible: Your Ultimate Guide to Breast Surgery.
Important Things to Know About Denver Breast Augmentation
1. Not every plastic surgeon is equally qualified.
Screen potential surgeons by asking questions and watching for red flags. To begin, set up a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in your desired procedure, look at their before and after photos, and check that the quoted cost is similar to that of other surgeons.
2. You will have options for your incision and implant placement.
There isn’t one single best incision or way to place implants, but the most popular choices today are submuscular implant placement through inframammary fold incisions, which run along the base of the breasts.
3. Women are choosing a natural look over the ‘90s buxom aesthetic.
Breast augmentation has been embraced by women from all walks of life. Thus, compared with the gravity-defying implants of the Pamela Anderson era, today’s breast augmentation patients are choosing modestly-sized implants.
4. Breast implant profile & projection matter more than cc’s of volume.
Given the same amount of overall volume, a wider-based implant profile will give you a fuller, more natural look, while a “higher profile” implant will create more forward projection.
5. There’s no one-size-fits-all recovery timeline.
Recovery time will vary based on your profession, the specifics of your procedure (i.e. if you have a breast lift, too), and your personal preferences.
6. Most women can still breastfeed after surgery.
Claims that breast augmentation can interfere with the ability to breastfeed aren’t supported by research, and Dr. Buford has never seen this happen to a patient in almost twenty years of practice.
7. Home remedies can ease recovery.
Before surgery, choose whole, organic foods, including plenty of high-quality proteins and good fats to support a smooth recovery. After surgery, treat swelling, pain, and muscle spasms with implant massage, breast banding, epsom salt baths, CBD, and magnesium.
