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.

Considering Breast Implant Surgery? 3 Things To Consider

by Michelle Austin

Breast implant surgery is a fantastic option if you want to change the size, shape, and profile of your breasts. While breast implants can significantly impact your appearance, there are a few decisions you need to make before going through this procedure. Breast implant surgery isn't a one-size-fits-all procedure, and your surgeon will make sure that your implants are suitable for your goals. Here's what to know if you are looking into breast implant surgery. 

Implant Type Matters

When opting for breast implant surgery, the first thing to consider is that the type of breast implant you select will significantly impact your results. Implants come in various sizes, shapes, and configurations. First, you'll decide whether you want saline or silicone implants. Next, you'll work with your surgeon to determine which size and shape implant best suits your needs. Consider what the implants will look like and what you desire for your results before deciding. Also, make sure you heed your surgeon's advice when selecting implants.

How Much It Costs

Factors that impact breast implant surgery costs include your implant selection, where you have the procedure, and the rates of your surgeon. Breast implant surgeons can have widely different rates depending on their experience levels and reputation. Finding a surgeon who has a solid reputation and a history of excellent results is crucial. You also want to make sure that you can afford breast implant surgery before scheduling the procedure. Most pay in the neighborhood of $5,000 to $10,000 for this surgery. Breast implant surgery financing is available for those who require it. If you are seeking out this procedure for cosmetic reasons, health insurance will not likely cover any of the costs.

How Much Downtime You Will Need

While breast implant surgery is a common procedure, it's essential to take your recovery seriously. Failure to follow your surgeon's aftercare instructions can lead to complications. Typically, you will be able to return to light daily activities one week following your surgery. However, it will be three weeks before you can return to more strenuous activity, and it will take around two months to fully recover from breast augmentation surgery. 

If you are thinking about breast implant surgery, here are three things to know. First, breast implant type impacts your results, so work with your surgeon to find the best fit. Second, this surgery will cost a few thousand dollars, so you should consider your budget before committing. Finally, healing will take weeks, so ensure you have enough downtime after surgery.
