Women turn to cosmetic surgery, such as
breast augmentation, for a number of reasons; whatever the reason, the decision is highly
personal and should be made after careful consideration. With advances
in plastic surgery techniques, skilled plastic surgeons can now perform
very natural looking breast augmentation and breast reconstruction surgery.
Here are answers to some common questions about breast augmentation.
Why Would I Get Breast Augmentation Surgery?
Some women are self-conscious about the way they look or feel that shirts
and blouses don’t fit their frame the way they would like them to
due to their breast size. Many women notice that one breast is smaller,
and turn to breast augmentation to even out their breast size. For women
who have undergone a mastectomy,
breast reconstruction surgery may allow them to feel more confident in their appearance. When women
lose a significant amount of weight, they often find that the size of
their breasts also dramatically decreases. Breast implants may return
them to their previous cup size. Breast-feeding, pregnancy, and aging
are other reasons women turn to breast implants.
How is Breast Augmentation Surgery Performed?
Breast augmentation surgery is performed by a board certified plastic
surgeon, either as an outpatient procedure at a surgical center or in
a hospital. Before the procedure, Dr Geoghegan will meet with you for
a medical evaluation and may advise you to stop taking certain medications
prior to your cosmetic surgery. The procedure will take approximately
two hours, during which you will be under anesthesia.
How Safe is the Surgery and How Long do Results Last?
The surgery is very safe, and the recovery period is usually fairly brief.
Breast implants do not last a lifetime, and will eventually need to be
replaced or removed depending on a person’s preference.
