Breast enlargement surgery is the most popular cosmetic treatments. This is followed by rhinoplasty (surgery to enhance the nose), liposuction, and facelifts.
Despite its popularity, plastic surgeons I have talked to would like women to weigh the pros and cons before they decide to undergo bigger breasts surgery.
Many women think that a breast augmentation
procedure or breast implants is a simple procedure with very few complications.
Fact is, breast enlargement surgery should not be taken lightly. You should be able
to make an informed decision and take into account the potential risks and
The first thing to know is that breast implants or augmentation are not a one-off surgery that can be performed and forgotten. The potential for complications gradually increase over time. Either for aesthetic reasons or safety, more surgeries will need to be performed later on in life.
Besides the initial cost, you must take into account additional cost when the implants need to be removed or replace. Most breast implants need to be removed after 10-15 years.
The second fact to consider is the choice and quality of the implants. Whether is saline or silicone gel implants, each has its own risks and rewards.
Silicone gel implants are silicone shells filled with plastic gel (silicone).
The advantages of breast enlargement surgery using silicone implants are:-
The disadvantages are:-
Saline implants are silicone shells filled with sterile salt water (saline).
Advantages of saline implants are:-
And the disadvantages of breast enlargement surgery using saline implants are:-
The best way to decide whether to have silicone or saline implants is to identify which issues are important to you.
If you want your post operation breasts to look and feel natural, then silicone implants are a better choice.
But, if you want to have lower cost, shorter scars and no MRI scans, then saline implants might be more suitable.
From what I had heard (feed backs from clients who frequent my women’s health shop) breast enlargement surgery is not for the fainthearted. For the first 2 to 3 days the pain scale will be around 9 out of a scale of 10. You have to take pain killers every 4 hours to manage the pain.
Grocery shopping or carrying your children on the first week after the operation are out of the question. As these involve carrying quite heavy loads, there will be a lot of pain.
Women who have had the operation recommends that you get a strong support network to manage your household before going for your breast implant operation as the pain will only subside after the fifth week.
If you are wary of the invasiveness, pain and side-effects of breast enlargement surgery, why not opt for herbal creams to naturally enlarge the breasts.
Other than the minimal cost, herbal products for bigger breasts are pain-free with hardly any side-effects.
Want to increase your bust by 1 cup size? No problem. Just diligently massage this breast enlargement cream twice a day. You will definitely see the difference in 2 months time!
Whether it is silicone or saline implants for bigger breasts, it is important to continue monitoring your health after the procedure.
You should continue with your monthly self-examination of your breasts, your regular schedule of mammograms and screenings. These measures are not only for early detection of breast cancer but they also help to determine the current state of your bigger breast implants.
