A woman’s breast size can affect her self-esteem and confidence, especially if she feels she is underdeveloped. Having small breasts, especially if she has a large frame, can also make a woman feel disproportionate to the point where she may have difficulty with her wardrobe. If you believe your breasts are too small for your frame and don’t like it, a breast augmentation may be able to give you your ideal bust size.
Your Breast Augmentation Options
While breast augmentation actually refers to many different procedures, including lifts, reconstructions and reductions, most people use the term to speak about breast enhancements. Enhancements use implants made of either silicone or saline to improve size, shape and firmness. While Hollywood and adult entertainment may have you believe that all “boob jobs” give women enormous breasts, subtler options are quite popular with non-celebrities. When it comes to choosing the right size for you, your preferences will be well-respected.
Preparing for a Breast Augmentation
Each individual prepares for cosmetic surgery in their own way, but there are common preparations nearly everyone should take into account. First, you want to be as healthy and strong as possible. Step up your gym schedule and load your diet with nutrient-rich options. Take your vitamins and keep yourself well-hydrated. This will allow your immune system to hum along at peak efficiency, which will help you heal after surgery.
Once you’re feeling in top form, you will also want to schedule some support for yourself. It is highly recommended that you take a full six weeks off of work to ensure you are getting plenty of rest in recovery. If you work from home or work solely on a computer, you may be able to return in a shorter timeframe, but you shouldn’t feel pressured to do so. You will also want to arrange for another adult to help you in the first few weeks following surgery.
