5 Common Mistakes Made When Deciding on Breast Implants

Dr Michael YunaevUncategorized0

The breast augmentation procedure is commonly requested as women look to alter the size, shape, and positioning of their breasts to achieve a more youthful look that helps boost confidence and comfort levels. 

When deciding to undergo a procedure that will have a significant impact on your visual aesthetic, there are some avoidable mistakes to be aware of to ensure you enjoy the full benefits of the procedure. Let’s look at the main five common pitfalls to try and avoid.

Mistake #1: Getting the procedure for the wrong reasons

Cosmetic surgery should not be something you do to please anyone but yourself. It should be a very personal choice that is for your benefit, be that a physical one of feeling more comfortable with your body, in particular in clothing or with your reflection or a mental benefit that brings with it a boost in self-confidence.

You should never alter your body for others. If improving the appearance of your breasts or correcting breast asymmetry is strictly for you, you will not regret the decision later.

Mistake #2: Choosing the wrong surgeon

Ensuring a successful breast augmentation procedure comes down to making sure you have the right surgeon. While referrals are a great place to start when finding your surgeon, credentials, work history, certification, and level of experience are vital. 

Your surgeon is not only responsible for your safety, but also the results. The research phase and evaluation of your options before deciding on going ahead with your procedure are very important.

Mistake #3: Not knowing which questions to ask

Cosmetic surgery should never be decided on without first having a consultation with your chosen surgeon. While you will be assessed and your goals will be discussed at this consultation to ensure the procedure you are considering is right for your needs, you also need to make sure you ask the right questions. 

Be aware of avoidable mistakes to ensure you enjoy the full benefits of your chosen procedure.

Some of the information that you should gather to ensure an informed decision includes:

  • The certification, qualification, and experience of your surgeon
  • Which implants will be best for you
  • An understanding of any potential risks and complications
  • An idea of the proposed outcome

Mistake #4: Deciding that you are a good candidate before you know

While you may get excited about the potential improvements to your breasts, you should never let it affect your judgment when deciding on the procedure. You must first understand if you are a good candidate to achieve the results that you are hoping for.

Realistic expectations should always be maintained, and it would be best if you wait to hear what your surgeon says during your consultation before setting your heart on any procedure and outcome.

Mistake #5: Choosing an incorrect implant size

The outcome of your procedure and your enjoyment of it will hinge significantly on the type of breast implants you choose. Choosing the right size for your body is easy, as there are various cup sizes available.

Your surgeon will help you avoid the wrong size, which can appear fake or disproportionate. The goal should always be natural results that enhance your looks.
