Is Breast Augmentation Right for You?
Breast augmentation surgery can help by making a dramatic improvement in the appearance of a woman’s breasts and in how she feels about herself. Because of the wide popularity and social acceptance of breast augmentation, women now feel comfortable and uninhibited with having breast augmentation and they often enjoy sharing their decision and experience with friends, family and coworkers.
You must be 18 years of age or older and in good physical and emotional health.
You should have completed your last pregnancy (and breast-feeding) at least three to six months prior to surgery. And, it is wise to defer breast augmentation if you plan to become pregnant within 1-2 years of surgery.
You must have realistic expectations about how surgery can improve the aesthetics of your breasts, your body image and your life. And, you need to have a good support person to help you through the entire surgical process, especially to be with you and assist you during the first 24 hours after surgery.
Implants can be placed through the breast fold, around the areola or through the underarm. Dr. Connall is an expert in all of these techniques, so the choice is yours. The most important issue in this decision is how you feel about scars, your breasts and your body.
Once you have chosen an incision, the next key decision for your breast augmentation is whether to place the breast implants “under or over the muscle”. There are a few key issues about this choice, but in our opinion the most important one is the thickness of your tissues and our ability to hide the edges (including ripples) of the breast implants with your soft tissue coverage.
