Choosing the Right Procedures

I have worked as a receptionist at a popular cosmetic surgery office for the past ten years, and I have seen every type of cosmetic surgery and recovery that you could imagine. Unfortunately, some patients are much better at choosing their procedures than others. For example, we had one patient that opted to have ten nose jobs in a row, which lead to a deformed bridge and a super tiny nose tip. Unfortunately, when she came back a few months later to have the problem corrected, the doctors didn't have enough tissue to work with. On my website, you will learn how to decide which procedures are right for you, so that you aren't left regretting your decisions down the road.

Choosing the Right Procedures

Do You Need Breast Augmentation?

by Michelle Austin

Having larger breasts is a desire of many women, but do you really need the surgery? The surgical procedure can be quite expensive and takes time to recover from. However, if you are truly unhappy with the way your body looks and you want a change, breast augmentation surgery may be right for you. Use this guide to help you decide if breast surgery is your best option.

You only want to go up a little in size

You want your breasts to feel a little fuller and slightly larger, but you don't desire a huge breast augmentation implant to get this achieved. In this case, you can get your breasts to look the way you desire using other means, such as padded bras, bra inserts, or even a breast lift. A breast lift is a procedure that gently lifts your breast tissue to create a greater shape and fullness. Talk to your cosmetic surgeon to see if a breast lift will work better for you than augmentation.

You want a very drastic change

If you desire a very drastic change in your breast tissue, you won't get these results from using padded or lifting bras at home. Changing a few cup sizes can't be done with pills or exercise, even if you see advertisements that make these claims. If you want to go up more than a few cup sizes and want results that last, then an implant procedure is best for you.

Breast implants come in a variety of sizes, so let your doctor help you choose the right size implant for your needs. Your body shape, height, current breast size, and whether you have had breast enhancement surgery before will determine how large or small your implants should be.

You want to change your current implants

If you already have breast implants but want to make a few changes, such as going larger or taking your current ones out for a smaller implant, then you need to see your cosmetic surgeon. Since breast implants won't come out on their own and the surgery to remove them is extensive, you'll want to get a medical assessment from your cosmetic specialist before you move forward. Try to get the same surgeon to perform your new implant procedure. Your surgeon will understand their own previous work more fully and can give you the modern results you desire. Or, go with a new surgeon you trust if you are uncomfortable with your original doctor.
