Special considerations before breast augmentation surgery

04th Dec 2018

The breast augmentation procedure is performed all over the world nowadays with an incredible success rate. With this procedure, you can have the breasts you have always wanted in a matter of hours. It sounds quite simple, and if you think of the multiple payment options most plastic surgeons offer now, you could practically have the procedure performed in a matter of weeks. However, there are some special considerations you should be aware of before scheduling your intervention.

The size of the implant

One of the first decisions you need to make early in the process of scheduling your breast augmentation is the type and size of the breast implant. Nowadays there are plenty of types of implants available. Some of them are made of silicone gel while others are filled with saline solution. They come in different shapes, sizes and projections. Choosing the right type of implant for you is an important task.

Getting the right type of implants is important if you want to avoid ulterior complications and also achieve a satisfactory result after the procedure. There are patients who had a dozen breast procedures performed in a matter of years just because they didn’t manage to get the right size of implants from the first try. You might have heard of plenty of celebrities that got huge implants in the past only to have them quickly removed and replaced with smaller ones later on.

Most patients interested in undergoing the breast augmentation procedure are enthralled by the idea of getting bigger breasts, and they tend to ask for the bigger size in implants thinking it is better. Let’s imagine a man wandering through the desert for days without food. Once he reaches a community and people offer him food, he eats so much and he gets very sick. It is similar to not having impressive breasts; once you get the opportunity to make your dream come true, the temptation might be to exaggerate. A responsible plastic surgeon can help you stay within certain limits and not cause more problems with the type of implant that you choose.

Instead of focusing on the size of the implant, allow your surgeon to make the recommendations for a minimum and maximum limit and make sure to describe in detail your expectations so he can recommend the right characteristics for the implant.

Natural results versus overly large breasts

There are women who have made a job out of having big breasts. It sounds funny; however, it is a reality. These women underwent surgery after surgery in the same manner another woman would go to courses for professional development. And there is nothing wrong with this. However, if you are not in the entertainment industry and you want your breasts not to draw the attention to you in any situation, the recommendation is to consider getting natural results and not exaggerated ones.

Just imagine a Christmas dinner, a funeral, a meeting with your business partners. How big should your breasts be so you will feel comfortable in any circumstance? After you answer this question, it will probably be easier for you to define what natural results mean for you.

If you decided to undergo breast augmentation just because you are fascinated with the breasts of some celebrity, remember that she is a celebrity. In other words, she needs to look sexy and appealing to attract more contracts and to make more money. If you are in certain industries, having overly large breasts can turn out to be quite a struggle instead of a blessing, so keep this in mind when discussing the issue with your plastic surgeon.

The age factor and breast implants

The procedure can be performed on people in their 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s and even older if the patient is in a good health condition and there are no medical contraindications to the procedure. However, a vast majority of patients are in their 20s to 40s. Keep in mind that the warranty for breast implants is usually ten years. This means that if you get them in your 20s, the chances are you will undergo at least another procedure to replace the implants in your lifetime. Moreover, getting implants that are very large can also lead to breast sagginess at an early age. Once again, if you get big implants in your 20s, there is a distinct possibility that you might need a breast lift surgery in your 30s or 40s.

At the same time, if you get the implants in your 40s and choose moderate implants and the ones that are right for your anatomy, chances are you will live with them happily for the rest of your life.

Age is an important factor when it comes to the appearance of your breasts, whether you had a breast augmentation or not. In many cases, aging is the reason that causes breast imperfections and leads to resorting to breast augmentation. In all cases, the natural aging process will affect the aspect of your breasts after an augmentation with implants. This means that even if the results of the surgery are permanent, your breasts might change their appearance over the years.


When it comes to undergoing a breast augmentation with implant procedure, there are special considerations each patient should be aware of before scheduling the procedure. While the intervention has seen an incredible rise in demand over the last decade, there are still things people don’t know or don’t understand about breast augmentation surgery.

Keep in mind that age is an important factor to pay attention to before undergoing the procedure. At the same time, choosing the right type of implant is essential not only to get good results after the procedure but also to avoid ulterior complications. Unless you are in the entertainment industry, achieving natural results should be your goal.
