Breast augmentation

I am 18 looking into getting a breast augmentation. Are there any tips that can help me decide if breast augmentation is right for me? I have thought about it for years and now finally I am researching information about it. My main concern is how it will affect my body and my health.

Breast augmentation is really a full body procedure. You should consider overall body proportions when thinking about size. This is a decision you and your surgeon will make together. It is important to understand that there is not a wide range of implant sizes and profiles that will look natural in each individual patient. Given your height, weight and preoperative breast profile, there really is a limited range of implants sizes and profiles that will produce a full - but natural - breast appearance. So it is important to establish from the beginning whether or not you and the surgeon that you have selected have the same aesthetic vision. One of the best ways to do this is by reviewing the surgeon's 'before and after' photos.

Hi. Breast implant placement can be done with saline or silicone gel filled implants, placed underneath your pectoralis muscle in an outpatient surgery that carries a short recovery. When you have your consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon, they will evaluate your current health, your desired size and appearance, exam your chestwall & breast/soft tissue and guide you towards the style and size implant that will comfortably fit without increased risks for long term problems. A lot of information regarding previously made silicone gel implants and claims of them causing health issues has lower pertinence as those implants are no longer utilized in the US, and many modifications have increased the safety profile. Please have an in person consultation for more specific information.
