Three Things No One Tells You About Breast Implants (But Your Surgeon Should!)

With breast augmentation continuing to top the list of plastic surgery procedures being performed, it’s clear that women everywhere are taking control of their own body confidence. And though there are many resources out there on preparing for a breast augmentation as well as caring for your implants, there are some bits of information that tend to get less exposure. Read on to learn about three things no one tells you about getting breast implants.

You’ll need to adjust to your new breasts

Though many women are thrilled with the results of their breast augmentation right away, others, still, need some time to adjust to their new breasts. It may take weeks or even months before your new breasts feel like your own. Some refer to this time as a “mourning period” for your old breasts. It’s important to remember that what you see immediately after surgery (and in the days ahead) is not the ultimate result of your breast augmentation. Your implants will look larger and sit higher on your chest initially following surgery — and it takes several months for implants to settle in to their final resting place. You may wish to take photos of your breasts each day for the first week or two to see just how much they change and progress over this period.

Beware of “bigger”

Many times when women opt for a breast augmentation, they decide on a larger sized implant than they initially thought they would. However, we always advise our patients to choose an implant that complements their frame and doesn’t look fake. It is also important to remember that extremely large breasts can actually make some women uncomfortable in their clothing — for example, tops or dresses that normally wouldn’t be deemed as “sexy” can, in fact, look so. We recommend our patients “try on” various sized implants to get a feel for how they look and feel before making a decisions on implant size.

You may feel depressed

This could be for several reasons: First, pain medication can induce feelings of depression. Second, you aren’t able to do normal, everyday things in the first week heavy lifting or working out. During this period, some women may even fear they’ve made the wrong decision by getting a breast augmentation. However, rest assured that these feelings are completely normal and temporary.
