Do you feel uncomfortable going to the beach because of your small breasts? Do you constantly feel the pressure of society on the standards of a woman’s curves? Don’t get me wrong, other people’s opinion should in no way be the reason for a woman to change herself. However, if your own self-esteem is low because of your breasts then a breast augmentation surgery could be a solution, not for your beauty, as we all are beautiful, but for you to regain your self-confidence. But wait! Don’t be so quick to make up your mind. Before going with such a decision, you should study your options and learn about the potential complications from breast augmentation surgery.
According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the major complications resulting from a breast augmentation surgery are included in the following non-exhaustive list:
- Loss of sensation
- Skin Atrophy
- Impossibility of breastfeeding
- Deflation resulting in the implant’s collapse
- Infections which occur because of wound’s contamination with bacteria
- Displeasure with the result (asymmetry, touch, scars, sagging, too big, too small …)
Here is a more comprehensive list and why you need to choose the right surgeon.
It is the responsibility of each woman to study the risks and decide to proceed or not with this surgery. However, it is my responsibility here to guide you through the steps to minimize the risk of these adverse effects, by helping you find the best plastic surgeon.
Not all plastic surgeons deserve their title and finding the right plastic surgeon for breast augmentation surgery is not an easy task. It is imperative to make sure that your surgeon has obtained a professional certification, for instance from the American Board of Plastic Surgery if you’re located in America. Don’t be afraid to explain your desire in details. Your plastic surgeon knows better, you might tell me, but even though he has a great experience in the field, he won’t know what you’re really looking for. You might be looking for a surgery to get the minimum amount of shape, while other women might want to have enormous breasts. Last but not least, always ask for reviews, talk to women who have already gone through the surgery, ask your doctor for Before/After pictures of clients. Look if the results suit your needs.
Finally, take all the time you need to reach a final conclusion. You and only you should decide on proceeding with such a surgery, and deciding if the results are worth the risks or not. And always remember one thing: if you want to be satisfied with your body, do it for yourself and not for society.
