Breast Augmentation: The Pros and Cons

Sep 9, 2008
You vividly remember your teenage years, although you would much rather forget. If you weren't obsessing about your zits, you were trying to stuff your bra with toilet paper to give your "fried eggs" more shape. Unfortunately, here you are, past puberty, and you're still an A cup.

So, lately you've been thinking about getting breast augmentation. You'd really like to go bigger, but not too much bigger - a C cup would be more than enough for you. The problem is whether or not you're ready to undergo the breast augmentation procedure.

First of all, you don't know if you can get the time off from work to get the breast augmentation. You've been told that the procedure requires a couple of weeks of recuperation time. You've tallied up all of your available days that you can take off, and so far it's up to a week and a half.

Then, there's the issue of having enough money to pay for the procedure. Since breast augmentation is considered a cosmetic procedure, your health insurance won't pay for it. So, you've decided to work overtime, in the hopes that you'll earn extra days off, as well as the extra money you need.

The next thing you need to do is find the right doctor. Even if you aren't too sure if you can have the procedure done, it's important to find a doctor. The doctor that you choose needs to be certified, as well as a specialist in this kind of surgery. The doctor's portfolio should also be readily available.

Another thing you need to be aware of is the overall process. Once you are ready to have the procedure done, you will need to schedule a consultation with your chosen doctor. During the consultation, the doctor will ask you lots of questions about your previous medical history. The doctor will also take a series of photographs for your medical file.

The procedure itself will take a couple of hours, during which time you will be sedated. There are two main ways that your breasts can be enhanced. First, excess fat from other parts of your body can be transplanted into your breasts. The upside to this is that it will provide your breasts with a more natural look. The downside is that, ironically, if you don't have enough body fat this kind of procedure cannot be done.

The other option is to have breast implants. The implants themselves are made out of silicone, and are implanted behind your mammary glands. The upside to this procedure is that it is long-lasting, and it gives your breasts a fully and perky look. The downside is that if you plan on having children, it is suggested that you not breast feed them.

So, what are the overall risks to this kind of procedure? Well, first of all, swelling and redness will occur within the first few days after the procedure. Also, if you have implants, there is a chance that they can rupture and leak, in which case they would have to be removed and replaced.
