Is Breast Augmentation Right for You?
There are many great aesthetic benefits to a breast augmentation procedure, however you must determine whether or not a breast augmentation is the right plastic surgery procedure for you by examining the reasons why you want to enhance the look of your breasts.
The ideal candidates for a breast augmentation procedure are those who are healthy adults, and those who are knowledgeable about the risks and results of the procedure. Since a breast augmentation is designed exclusively for aesthetic reasons, it is important to have realistic expectations of the results. Breast implants are not considered an automatic fix for severe body-image issues, emotional trauma, or relationship problems. Breast augmentation is, however, great for those who want to look better in a swimsuit, reverse the effects of aging and pregnancy, or who are simply unhappy with their small breast size. Those who have undergone a mastectomy may also wish to have implants to feel like themselves again.
Your Breast Augmentation Procedure
Once you have decided that a breast augmentation is the right choice, you will have some decisions to make that will determine the results. With Dr. Crawford's help, you will choose what size implants will looks best, what type of filling the implant will have (saline or silicone), and what type of incision you would like. Once all of these have been determined, you will set an appointment date for your surgery.
The procedure itself takes 1 to 2 hours to complete under general anesthesia and is considered an outpatient procedure. The general recovery time is up to 6 weeks, but patients who do not have a physically demanding job may be able to return to work after only one week. During recovery, it is important to avoid lifting, bending, and other strenuous activities for several weeks to ensure that no complications arise. You will experience pain and fatigue for a few days following the procedure, but if you comply with Dr. Crawford's orders during recovery, you will be feeling and looking as good as new in no time.
