Despite the huge rise in UK popularity and success rates of breast augmentation these procedures are still not completely risk free. Whether you’re considering breast enlargement or just breast uplift you must not take your decision lightly. Weeks of thorough research and even interviewing of plastic surgeons is in order. The National Health Service offers a list of pre-breast surgery considerations. Not only should you research the details of the procedure and types of breast implants, you should search for a highly experienced cosmetic surgeon who specializes in breast surgery (both reconstructive and cosmetic.) The more highly complicated post-cancer reconstructive procedures a surgeon has performed, the more likely he or she is to excel at aesthetically-motivated cosmetic procedures.
You should closely observe how much explaining the practitioner you’re considering is willing to do. Does your candidate thoroughly describe the different types of implants available to you? There are differences between silicone and saline implants, there are a variety of shapes and degrees of firmness that are more or less appropriate for the shape and firmness of your natural breasts. Making the match takes not only scientific knowledge of the materials and procedures, but an aesthetic sensibility about shape and proportion to the chest cavity. The cosmetic surgeon you chose should be prepared to discuss these choices at length, and refer you to resources for further research. Does your candidate explain the procedure step-by-step, from preparation through recovery? Because breast surgery is performed under general anesthesia, you should know what kind, how it may affect you and how long you may need to recover before being released from the hospital. Usually patients are able to go home the day after surgery, start driving a week after surgery, return to work two weeks after surgery and begin their exercise routine about a month after surgery. But your circumstances and conditions may require more time than average, and so must be discussed at length with the practitioner you trust your breasts to.
