Desire and reality. Balancing what you wish to achieve with what is physically possible is critical when it comes to breast augmentation surgery.
Let’s talk about how you can define what you want and why it is important.
The importance of clear expectations
Before you make any decisions, communicate your wishes to a surgeon and discuss what you imagine your breasts to look like after surgery. You may not be happy with your chest at the moment, but describing what you want is still fairly difficult. Here is a useful list how you could better define your vision:
- Determine what you don’t like about your breasts.
- Write down how this affects your confidence, self-image and lifestyle.
- List what you envision based on your current information.
- Talk to a specialist and revisit your life of expectations.
- Finalise your definition and discuss this with your surgeon.
Why is defining your wishes important?
To make your definition as valuable as possible, you also need to understand that not every breast is equal. The kind of implant size you are able to successfully have depends largely on your natural tissue.
This means that if you have a very flat chest and thin breast tissue, very large implants might not be a realistic dream. The pull of gravity on your already thin breast tissue causes natural sagging or rippling.
However, a skilled surgeon who knows what you are after can advise how realistic your vision is and recommend a more achievable alternative is needed. As such, we suggest caution towards anyone who claims they can make your wildest dreams come true without addressing possible side-effects.
All our surgeons are highly skilled professionals.
