Breast augmentation has long been one of the most popular elective surgical procedures in Chicago, IL and North America, outpacing other popular procedures like rhinoplasty year after year. Augmentation covers several different variations, including breast reductions, enhancements, lifts and reconstructions. If you are not happy with some aspect of your bust and are ready to consider a permanent solution to help you get your ideal figure, breast augmentation may be the solution. However, there are several aspects you need to consider before making your final decision.
Your Current Physique
The size, shape, firmness and height of breast tissue can be affected by your physical fitness level and your weight. For this reason, you want to be at your ideal weight and fitness level before having breast augmentation. Gaining or losing significant amounts of muscle or body fat after surgery can change your results in ways you may not expect or like, so it’s best to wait until you are ready.
Your Future Family Planning
No type of breast augmentation affects your fertility or your ability to carry a healthy child to full term. What breast augmentation can do, however, is affect your ability to lactate and breastfeed in the future. If you are comfortable offering milk from a bank or formula, there is no barrier to future childbearing.
Your Schedule and Current Lifestyle
Recovering from any type of breast augmentation takes some time. That means you will need to step away from work, full-time parenting, volunteerism and other activities for a set amount of time to give your body time to rest and heal. You need to allow your body to heal before rushing back to work and other commitments.
Your Overall Health
You want to be in the best condition possible before receiving your breast augmentation procedure in Chicago, IL, as your overall health has an impact on your surgical results. A breast augmentation procedure can give you the figure you’ve always wanted, but there are considerations to ponder first.
