Are you searching the internet and reading various blogs to get an idea of whether you should undergo breast implant surgery? Here’s what you can do. 

Breast implant surgery, also known as breast augmentation, is a popular cosmetic procedure among women. During this procedure, implants are placed under the breast tissue to increase the size of the breasts. However, there are still some preconceived notions and misinformation about this procedure. Moreover, you may also have a whole lot of questions in your mind about this procedure. 

In this blog, we will discuss the things that you must be aware of before getting breast implant surgery. 

Important facts before having a breast implant surgery 

Before you opt for breast augmentation surgery, here are the things that you must know. 

  1. You have a choice between saline and silicone implants. 

Women undergoing breast implantation have a choice between saline and silicone implants. Silicone implants feel like natural breasts and are softer. But it is difficult to detect a leak with this implant. On the other hand, saline implants are not natural looking but can readily detect leakage and even provide fullness. 

  1. Every woman’s requirement is different 

Every woman’s requirement is different. Hence all women need to consider their lifestyle and body type before proceeding with the breast augmentation surgery. Also, breast implants vary in size and look different for every woman. During the consultation, your plastic surgeon will try on different implant shapes and sizes and decide the one which is best for you. 

  1. The result may take some time.

Post-surgery, you may feel that the implants are not in place. They may sit higher on the chest or may even feel tighter at the edges. You have to be patient during the recovery period. After some months, your breast implants will drop into the natural pockets of the breast tissue and will feel like your own. 

  1. Choose a certified plastic surgeon 

The most essential step before breast implant surgery is to find a board-certified plastic surgeon. Your surgeon will examine your breast tissues to help you determine the type of implant required for you and make sure to achieve the best results. 

  1. The visibility of the scar will disappear. 

After the breast augmentation surgery, you may notice some scarring. These scars may appear to be raised as well as hyper-pigmented. Over time, the appearance of the scars disappears and the incisions made on the breasts will eventually heal. 


If you want to know about breast implant surgery, always consult an experienced plastic surgeon to discuss your concerns.
