Many women considering breast augmentation would say that they are very familiar with the procedure. They know that it can give them fuller breasts, and they probably understand the difference between saline and silicone. But there’s more to this sought-after breast surgery.
Here are five things to know about breast augmentation before you schedule your procedure:
- It’s incredibly popular: Breast augmentation has been one of the top five cosmetic surgery procedures in America since 2006. 193,073 patients had breast augmentation in 2020 alone, according to recent statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgery.
- There’s no real age limit: It may seem like breast augmentation is only for younger women. However, just 27% of patients are between the ages of 20 and 29. 35% of patients are between the ages of 30 and 39. And an impressive 28% of patients are between the ages of 40 and 54. It isn’t too late to enjoy the look that you desire.
- It can do more than add volume: Breast augmentation is a great way to achieve fuller breasts. But it can also correct asymmetry, create a rounder shape, replace lost volume, enhance overall proportions, and help with a few other unique breast goals, too.
- Implants are not lifetime devices: You should plan on replacing your breast implants eventually. Modern implants can often last more than a decade. However, complications or changes in your aesthetic preferences may motivate you to swap them out. It’s also possible to remove your implants altogether if that’s something you want to do later on.
- It can be combined with other surgeries: Some of the most dramatic and flattering results are achieved through a combination of breast augmentation and a breast lift. Breast lift surgery can restore a much more youthful appearance to sagging breasts.
