Things you didn't know about breast implants

The internet is replete with information about breast augmentation. Talk to our board-certified plastic surgeons to separate the myths from the facts. Here are 3 lesser known things about breast enlargement:

  1. Most likely, one or more surgeries will be in your future. Breast implants can last a very long time, but they are not lifetime devices. It's likely that you will need to have a revision surgery at some point to replace your breast implants. Most women feel breast augmentation is still well worth it, but it's an important thing to know before you opt for breast implants.
  2. You may change your mind about size after your consultation. Before speaking with a plastic surgeon, you may be getting confusing information on the web regarding breast implant sizes. Some women feel like they need to choose a number of CCs for their augmentation. This is not necessarily the case. It's a good idea to think about what size breasts you want, and then to describe that look to our surgeons. We can recommend a range of sizes that will work for your body frame and then help you narrow it down to a final size.
  3. Your breasts may not look like what you expected right after surgery. For the first 1-2 weeks after breast augmentation, your breasts will look swollen and high on your chest. As the implants settle into position over the first couple of weeks, your breasts will look like the results you expected.

The only way to know if breast augmentation is right for you is to discuss your wishes and your surgical options with our caring and board-certified plastic surgeons in Lone Tree, CO. To schedule your complimentary cosmetic consultation, please call Park Meadows Cosmetic Surgery at (720) 457-4471.
