Considering breast augmentation, but not filled in on all the fine details of the process? You no doubt have a lot of concerns and questions before you commit to any sort of procedure, even if you’re confident in the expertise and skill of the team at Athena Plastic Surgery. To help you make a thoroughly informed decision about breast augmentation in the West Palm Beach area, here’s a quick guide to some of the most common questions and concerns that are heard from those thinking about augmentation.
What Types of Augmentation Procedures Exist?
There are different types of breast augmentation procedures out there. There are a few major categories of augmentation to consider. For example, you have your choice of material used for the augmentation, such as silicone implants and saline implants. You also have choices such as implant shape and size. Our surgeon will discuss your options and what each means for you.
What is the Recovery Like?
Recovery after breast augmentation isn’t particularly long. In most cases, within just weeks, you should be ready for light exercise. The recovery time may be longer or shorter depending on how extensive the augmentation is, the type of procedure, and other factors.
What About Drooping, Cleavage, and Other Considerations?
It’s important to understand that results vary. Simply increasing the size of your breasts via implants may not achieve the full results you desire in terms of shape, cleavage, bra size, etc. If you have specific goals in mind for your breast augmentation procedure, make sure to discuss these with our doctor so you can work together to find the ideal solution.
Will They Need Replacement?
Breast augmentation generally doesn’t require any maintenance or replacement; implants are designed to be long-lasting and safe. You’ll only need a replacement in the case of damage to the implant, shifting of the implant, or certain rarities such as the implant hardening over time. For the most part, you can expect implants to last a very long time unattended.
