Every woman has an idea of what her breasts should look like. Whether this idea comes from the media, her peers or other influences, some women turn to a surgeon to turn that idea into a reality if her physique doesn’t quite match what she has in mind.
During the pre-operative consultation process, the surgeon carefully analyses each and every patient.
There are many different choices that must be then made before performing breast augmentation surgery. Choosing the right implant, the right approach and the right implant placement all influence the final result.
Every woman is unique, and since no woman ever has exactly symmetrical breasts, every breast is also unique. Analyzing and understanding these unique features is essential in formulating an individualized surgical plan that will lead to the best possible result for each patient.
Your surgeon will take into account your existing breast anatomy, your desired look and your lifestyle when preparing a surgical strategy for your breast enhancement.
The decision between placing the implant above or below the chest muscle also affects the look of the breast. The intended look of the breasts, the shape of the existing breast and the size of the chosen implant all dictate the preferred placement.
When it comes to choosing the right procedure for you, the factors to be considered include the purpose of the augmentation, whether it is for aesthetic purposes or even for revising a previous augmentation procedure. There are also the time of the surgery, the emplacement procedure, and the kind of implant to be used, if any. The surgeon will also have to determine the right kind of incision to make, whether it will be below the breast, in the periareolar area, in the armpit, along the abdomen or even at the navel.
When taking lifestyle into consideration during the planning process, factors will include whether you plan on breastfeeding in the near future, as certain types of augmentation might cause difficulties for breastfeeding mothers. A woman’s skin type will also determine how quickly the surgical scars will heal and completely fade away. The technique used for augmentation, as well as the kind of daily activities engaged in by the patient will also affect how quickly she will be able to return to her normal routine after surgery. Placing implants below the chest muscles, for instance, will require a much longer recovery period to allow the deep tissues to heal.
