Breast Augmentation #1 Cosmetic Surgery Procedure
Even with the increased popularity of the butt lift, breast augmentation continues to be the number one cosmetic plastic surgery procedure according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Women’s Health Magazine recently published an article on the “6 Things You Should Know About Boob Jobs-From Women Who’ve Had Them.”
Regrets Over Cheap Surgery
The first patient states she had her breast augmentation surgery at age 24. She chose the cheapest option she could find which was all she could afford. Now she is sorry she didn’t do more research and wait until she could afford a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Her stitches popped open, and her doctor told her not to worry and that it would just heal. Unfortunately, she ended up with very unsightly scars. It took her six years to save enough money to have breast revision surgery.
Another patient wants women to know that for her she was very uncomfortable for three days but was able to return to her spin class after nine days. However, she did wait six weeks before resuming her upper body workouts.
Large Implants Cause the Most Discomfort in Healing
The next patient says she went from an AA cup to a DD cup and had intense pain. Her surgeon told her that her pain level was due to the large implants stretching her pec muscles.
And another patient commented on how hard it was to try to choose the right size implants. For her, after surgery, she felt she went too large and that her breasts looked fake. Even after healing it took her almost a year to accept her new body image and feel really comfortable.
The last patient states she cried a lot after surgery, she thought it might have been her pain medication that made her weepy but worried if she made the right implant choice. However, today she is very happy with her implants and only wishes that she did it sooner.
