A Short Guide To Breast Augmentation

May 30, 2008
This is a subject that has seen much controversy, with people opposing the idea of going under the knife and 'tampering' with what nature (or God) has given you in terms of your physical appearance. Breast augmentation is a common treatment that has fast gone from being something for the rich and famous, to people fighting in courts to have them done under the NHS. These days if a woman was to say she has had implants it is nothing amazing and is very common.

However, it is alarming how many women do not do their research before deciding to go for breast augmentation. Interestingly enough, girls as young as 12 or 13 are able to go under the knife to have their breasts enlarged and many of them doing it on the sly - in other words doing it for a small charge with people who may or may not be qualified practitioners. Unbelievably, no matter how many adverts and warnings you see, there are women who out of desperation will resort to an illegal procedure.

Those who are thinking about breast augmentation should consult their doctor beforehand, just so you are aware of all of the risks involved. One thing that is for certain, when trying to make changes to your body, whether it is big or small you must put your health first and be completely sure that this is the procedure you want. The worst thing you could do is proceed with this half-heartedly, as there is no going back without more surgery that is painstaking.

If you are in doubt of what to do, the next best thing to do is to research into this on your own, finding out exactly what the procedure entails and the recovery period after. These usually take from one week to several weeks before patients are able to move around normally, this does however, depend upon the scale of the procedure. Scars from the procedure will take several weeks or months to heal, as this depends upon the individual.

You are advised after the procedure not to strain your body in any way, this means you cannot use your arms or take part in any strenuous exercises as this may cause more damage to the skin and possibly cause a rupture. You will notice that after the procedure that you will have a different feeling and sensation in the nipple areola area. This is normal, as you have just had surgery, so it can last for a month to a year. This all depends upon how fast you heal.
