If you are tired of feeling less than 100% confident when you are invited to a pool party or beach day, we are willing to bet there is very little you wouldn't do for a bust size that made you feel comfortable and happy when you got those invitations.
Luckily, there is a procedure that can change the way you feel and instill confidence in your bust size: breast augmentation.
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that many women turn to when looking to increase their breasts' size. According to a report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, it is the most popular surgical cosmetic procedure on the market, with more than 299,000 procedures performed throughout 2019.
Unfortunately, there are very few ways to alter the size and shape of your breasts. There are even fewer methods that are reliable, and fewer still are those that provide substantial change. When it comes down to it, breast augmentation is really the only option women looking for a larger bust have.
If you would like to increase the size of your bust, then you are likely going to be a strong candidate for breast augmentation surgery as long as you:
The best candidates are also those who do not smoke or drink alcohol excessively since these factors could increase your risk for surgical complications in some cases.
The first step in your breast augmentation is anesthesia, which will come in the form of IV sedation or general anesthesia. Your surgeon will let you know which option is best for your unique situation. Once the anesthetic has taken effect, Dr. Haywood will prepare to make the incisions for the implants to be inserted.
There are three popular incision locations: periareolar, inframammary and transaxillary. Periareolar makes incisions around the nipples, which allows for the easy concealment of the scar tissue along the rim of the nipple.
Inframammary incisions are made beneath the breast, and while they are the most obvious scarring, they provide excellent access to the breast tissue and can still be hidden under swimwear.
Transaxillary incisions are made in the armpit, preventing any noticeable scarring on the breast and hiding it within the natural folds of the underarm tissue. It is often considered to be the most aesthetically pleasing since scar tissue is hidden so well.
You can expect to experience some minor pain, discomfort, bruising and swelling during the first few weeks of your procedure. While these can become uncomfortable, they can also be managed with prescription or over-the-counter medications as needed. You may also notice that drains were inserted at the surgical site to prevent excess fluid build-up.
You will have to take it easy for a few weeks, but by the eight-week mark, you can generally expect to resume all your usual activities. You will also be able to have a good idea about how the final results will look, but they will continue to set for about six months after your breast augmentation procedure. So be patient and give it time if you feel like there is something small that is off.
Breast augmentation can be combined with a host of other surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures like:
There are advantages to combining multiple surgical procedures at once. To start, the total cost of the work is much more affordable since you will only have to pay for expenses like anesthesia and facility fees once rather than every time you have a separate surgery. It also minimizes your recovery and the amount of time you will have to spend away from work and other responsibilities
