Many women choose to undergo breast augmentation surgery to increase the size of their breasts or to provide a lift for women who feel their breasts are not as perky as they'd like, without the scars that typically come along with a breast lift procedure. However, as with any surgery, some discomfort is to be expected after the procedure until you have completely healed. These four tips will help you have an easier, successful, and more comfortable breast augmentation experience:
1. Meet with your plastic surgeon before the day of your surgery.
You should meet with your plastic surgeon at least once before the day of your surgery. The first time you meet your plastic surgeon will probably be at a consultation visit. This visit is a good time to discuss the results you'd like to get out of breast augmentation. Your plastic surgeon can give you an idea of the results you can expect, and you can discuss the type and size of implants that you'd like.
2. Buy all the things you'll need during your recovery period.
Breast augmentation is a safe and common plastic surgery procedure, but it is still surgery, which means that your body will take some time to heal. You will need supplies to make the recovery period easier. These things should be purchased ahead of time. Your doctor may suggest that you purchase a compression bra to wear after your surgery. This type of garment can reduce soreness and swelling. You may also want to stock up on your favorite snacks and entertainment so you can make yourself comfortable while convalescing.
3. Expect some swelling immediately after your surgery.
You will notice some soreness after your surgery, but some swelling is also to be expected. It can take several weeks for the inflammation to fully subside, so don't be alarmed if your implants don't look exactly the way you were hoping immediately post-op. Remember that your body is healing, and be patient with it. Most patients are happy with the results of their breast augmentations and find that their final results are worth the wait.
4. Find someone to help you while you recover.
Finally, you may want to find a friend or family member who can stay with you for a couple of days after your breast augmentation. Your chest and arms will likely feel stiff and sore, and you may not want to move them initially. A caretaker can bring you food, drinks, and medication and help you with your personal care needs during this time.
For me, summer is a busy season. During this beautiful, warm time of the year, I like to go to the beach, play with my dog outside, go swimming, and engage in other fun outdoor activities. Because I spend more time outside during the summer months, having a low maintenance hairstyle is crucial. I prefer to keep my hair shoulder-length at this time. In doing so, I can put my hair up in a ponytail. However, because my hair isn’t extremely long, it won’t get weighed down by stifling humidity. If you like to spend your days in the great outdoors when the weather is warm outside, consider visiting a salon near you in order to get a fun, new hairstyle. On this blog, I hope you will discover the best haircuts for outdoor enthusiasts, no matter the season.
