Benefits of Breast Surgery

Have you ever thought about having your breasts done? Most women have had at least fleeting thoughts about how much their appearance could be improved by having breast surgery, whether an augmentation to enlarge the breasts or a reduction to make them smaller.

However, many women rule out the idea of cosmetic surgery before even seriously looking into it, because they incorrectly assume that it’s too expensive and unattainable. Here are some reasons you should consider breast surgery and some factors to consider.

Are You a Good Candidate?

Most people can be good candidates for breast surgery. Breast reduction surgery can be considered a medically necessity. Overly large breasts can cause poor self-esteem; neck, back and shoulder pain; can irritate skin and may limit activity.

Breast augmentation also helps women improve self-esteem due to self-conscious feelings about small breasts. Breast augmentation can make it easier to select flattering clothes and to feel more comfortable in a bikini swimsuit. The surgeon may perform a breast lift in addition to an augmentation to use your existing skin to create a fuller look.


However, potential patients for either procedure should be in good psychological and physical health. It’s important to have realistic expectations for how much the procedure can help you. And it’s also advisable not to smoke because smoking can delay healing and increase the risk of complications.

How to Choose the Right Cosmetic Surgeon

Not all cosmetic surgeons are created equal. Although you may be tempted to go overseas for cheaper surgery, this can significantly increase the risks. You need to have not only a highly trained and qualified surgeon performing your procedure, you also need one with whom you can follow up after the fact.

Make sure you choose a surgeon who is board certified and highly skilled in the work. Ask to see before-and-after photos of previous work and if any testimonials are available from former patients. Ask the doctor in a pre-operative consultation about the type of surgical procedure used, what kind of results you can expect, and what your options would be if you were dissatisfied with the outcome.

Although unhappy patients are rare, it can happen from time to time. You want to choose a surgeon who takes as much pride in his work as you will take in the results.


How to Prepare for the Procedure?

The doctor will bring you in for a pre-surgery consultation. He will go over the results you can expect and the details about the healing process. If you smoke, you will be advised to stop smoking before the surgery.

You will need to stop taking any medications or herbal supplements that can increase bleeding, such as aspirin or anti-inflammatory medicine. You may be asked to get lab work done and to get a baseline mammogram.

Recovery from the Procedure

During your consultation with the doctor, you will learn more about what to expect in terms of recovery. Expect to take a week off from work, although this can vary based on the type of procedure you have and your overall healing time. Expect to have some continued soreness and restrictions on lifting heavy objects for up to six weeks after the procedure.


Cosmetic surgery is more affordable than most people realize. Financing is available that puts it within reach of many budgets. Installment payments allow you to get the procedure done and to pay for it on terms that you can afford. There’s simply no reason to spend another day feeling dissatisfied with your body when you can achieve the youthful, healthy look you desire.
