Women born with small breasts fall into this category. They have not experienced any pregnancy-related changes to the breasts and are often younger than 30 years of age. Women in this category typically have firm, youthful breast tissue and seek to increase their breast size.
Many women lose volume and firmness in the breasts after pregnancy and nursing. These women are usually between 25 and 40 years of age. They often have good tissue tone but might be experiencing some slight breast droop. Women with post-pregnancy breasts must be finished breastfeeding before undergoing surgery.
As you age, breast tissue can weaken, which causes the breasts to sag and lose volume. Women with sagging breasts are usually 40 years or older. However, younger women with genetic tendencies for breast sagging or who have experienced weight fluctuations may find that they have drooping breasts. Women in this category should consider combining a breast lift with their augmentation.
It takes between four and six weeks to fully recover from breast augmentation surgery. In the initial week, you will be required to wear a support bra and should avoid strenuous physical activities. After two weeks, you will slowly begin to resume your normal activities, but excess physically exertion, such as exercise, should only be done with your surgeon’s permission.
It is possible for breast augmentation to result is some slight scarring that will likely fade over time. To minimize the appearance of scarring, consider an inframammary or transaxillary incision for an inconspicuous scar.
Many factors affect the cost of breast augmentation. Geographical location, facility fees, anesthesia fees, and surgeon fees all alter the ultimate cost of your procedure. However, price should only be one factor in choosing a surgeon. You should never sacrifice quality work by a board-certified plastic surgeon just to save some money. Proven results matter. Financing is available if needed.
There is some slight pain associated with breast augmentation surgery. Immediately following your surgery, it is normal to experience redness, bruising, swelling, and soreness. Your chest may feel tight and uncomfortable. To control the pain, you will be prescribed an oral pain medication and should schedule downtime for at least a few days following your surgery.
