10 Things You Should Know Before Having Breast Augmentation

10 Things You Should Know Before Having Breast Augmentation

If you have been thinking about going under the knife for breast augmentation surgery, there are some things which you will need to be aware of first. Whilst this is a relatively simple procedure, with short recovery time, it is important that you understand the ins and outs of such a procedure, to be sure that you are informed of all aspects.

Last year I underwent this procedure, with great results, gaining two cup sizes and a great amount of confidence too. The breast augmentation Orange County clinics offer is highly quality and I really enjoyed my overall experience. I wanted to share with you then, some information which can help you before you decide on this surgery.

First, But Not Last

Somewhat surprisingly, twenty five percent of women who have this treatment completed, need to go back in for surgery after a decade because implants don’t always last forever. Whilst the quality of the implants improve each year, this is still something that may women contend with.


Costs vary from clinic to clinic, but the average cost is $3,719 that you should expect to pay for your surgery.

Short Recovery

Generally speaking, women only need between 3 days and a week to recover from this surgery. Whilst you may not feel at your absolute best until perhaps a fortnight later, after just a few days you will really start to feel fit and able to go on with your normal life.

Try Before You Buy

All clinics offer you the chance to ‘try on’ your new breast size before you decide on how big you want to go. These sizers fit below your clothing and give you a great insight into how you’ll look.

Don’t Expect Miracles

The large majority of surgeons will not allow you to jump up by more than two cup sizes in a single operation. This is because the body doesn’t react well to extreme operations such as this, and it can be bad for your health to go bigger. If you do want to increase the size greatly, you’ll have to do so bit by bit.

Touchy Feely

After you have had implants put in, your breasts will not feel the same as they did before, as you will lose some sensitivity. This can feel strange at first but this feeling will soon disappear.


Whilst not true in all cases, in many cases you may not be able to breastfeed after you have had your breasts reduced in size, or if you have opted for implants. Speak to your surgeon to find out whether or not you still can.

Fatty Boobs

In a new procedure called autologous fat transfer, you can now have fat moved from one area of your body, and put into your breasts.

Silicone or Saline

Implants come in two different types of material, silicone and saline. Both have their benefits and disadvantages, so be sure to speak at length with the clinic before deciding.

No Exercise

After your procedure you will not be permitted to do exercise which involves heavy cardio, or anything which will cause your breasts to jump around.

And there you have it, some top things for you to think about if you want this surgery.
