Cosmetic surgery for breast enlargement also called breast augmentation, is one of the most popular surgeries today. Women who have either tiny breasts, stretch marks, drooping breasts or uneven breasts opt for this surgery to help them feel more attractive and self assured. The fact is, fuller breasts make a woman feel more beautiful and sexy. The procedure will include a consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon who will discuss your new breast size. He then will draw lines from your nipples to the underside of your breasts and from the center to your armpit. This shows him precisely where he needs to make his incisions. Once you are prepped for surgery, you may either be administered a local anesthetic, or general anesthetic, depending on how much needs to be done and how long the surgery will take.
The implants for your cosmetic surgery may be made of silicone or saline. Once the implants have been placed in the correct areas, the doctor will close up the wound with stitches, and you will more than likely be staying overnight in a hospital room.The stitches will be removed in about a week. Breast enlargement surgery is not without risks, but normal after effects are bruising and swelling. A support bra will help with that and pain medication will keep you comfortable. When you leave the hospital, you will be instructed to wear the bra day and night for at least three weeks. Once your stitches are removed, you will notice a small red line running horizontally in the crease beneath your breasts. Don’t worry, it will fade.
Some of the more uncommon risks are bleeding, fever, extreme pain, numbness in the nipple, lumps, leakage and heat when you touch your breasts. In these instances, seek medical help immediately. For lumps, it may be because there is scarring. The surgeon may then either reduce the scarring, or replace the implant. If there is leakage of the saline or silicone gel, there may be fever and joint pain. The plastic cosmetic surgeon may decide you should have the implants removed altogether. The pricing for breast enlargement and augmentation varies with the approximate cost being $4,000.
