What You Need to Know Before Getting a Boob Job

June 22, 2015 2 min read

Boob jobs aren't just an easy, quick fix surgery. They take careful consideration and research. If you're wondering if you should enlarge your endowments, keep reading. You'll find out what you should know before going under the knife, and even before booking an appointment with your surgeon! Visit the Right Sites Getting info off the web can be sketchy at times, especially when it comes to a serious procedure. The glamourized boob job explained on one site may not at all be the reality of your surgery. So visit the right sites. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery are the places to hit first. These sites are certified, and break down everything from types of implants to surgical terms. Find a Trusted Doctor Sometimes when I think of plastic surgeons the image of Doctor Nick from The Simpsons pops into my head. "Hi everybody!" So make sure your doctor is certified and has a good track record of successful operations. Look out for any official sounding but kinda weird looking "certifications" from possibly non-existent or Internet based boards. Check out the surgical facility and back check everything. Doing your homework is really worth it when it comes to your health and appearance. Once you feel you have found a qualified, certified and experienced doctor, keep an open dialogue with her. Ensure your vision aligns with your doctor's in every aspect of the procedure. Meet with former patients as a reference point. Ask to see photos of previous work. Don't forget to speak with your regular doctor to get cleared for surgery, and just to make sure you both are comfortable with the decision. Your regular doctor can advise you on the risks of surgery, as well as health risks you may have that could complicate the surgery. For instance, did you know that smokers who undergo breast implant surgery are at a higher risk of nipple loss? Nipple loss! If you haven't quit this health hindering habit yet, now's the time. Understand Implants Not all implants are created equal. Your surgeon will work with you to define the type that fits you best.
  • Saline Implants - filled with saline salt water. They're inserted empty and then filled when in place.
  • Silicone Implants - filled with silicone gel. They are pre-filled and the sticky gel is supposed to mimic real human fatty tissue.
  • Fat-transfer breast augmentation - involves liposuctioning fat from one part of the body and injecting it into your breasts.
Recovery Make sure you have a trusted friend or family member to take you home and provide you with support and care. Have a good communication with your doctor about the recovery process for your chosen procedure. It may take longer for some patients than others to fully recover, so don't over stress with a certain deadline. With any surgery, there are small risks associated including breast pain, ruptures, infection, wrinkling and nipple sensitivity changes. Make sure you speak with your doctor to fully evaluate your risks. Have you ever considered or underwent a boob job? Let us know your personal story!
