What Will My Breasts Feel Like After Breast Augmentation?
After your breasts have fully healed and settled post-surgery, they will look and feel very similar to natural breasts but, in the early days, weeks, and months after surgery, they may feel a bit strange. Right after surgery, your new breasts often feel tight, hard, and swollen. You may feel a tingling sensation. The breasts will sit higher on the chest than natural breasts. It can take a few months for your implants to settle, after which they’ll look and feel like you’re expecting. Be patient; gorgeous breasts are coming. You’re going to love your new look.
Should I Place My Implant Over or Under the Muscle?
Breast implants can be placed over or under the muscle on the chest. There are advantages to both. During your consultation, we’ll explain your options and make some recommendations for your lifestyle, body type, and desired results.
Do I Need a Breast Lift?
Many women assume that breast augmentation will fix all of their aesthetic breast issues but, if you have sagging, you may need a lift in addition to your augmentation. These surgeries can often be performed together. A lift will help restore the breasts to a higher, more youthful position while the implants add volume and perfect shape.
Can I Still Breastfeed After Breast Augmentation?
Many women are surprised to learn that breastfeeding is often a possibility after breast augmentation. If you’re planning on additional children and are hoping to breastfeed, let us know. The incision type we use and the placement of your implant may increase your chances of breastfeeding success.
Can I Buy My New Bras Before Surgery?
If you’re hoping for 36C or 38D breasts after surgery, wait before you buy those bras. Bra sizing is determined by the manufacturer and isn’t standardized. When it does come time to buy new bras, shop for fit as opposed to the numbers on a tag. You should also be aware that it can take several months before your breasts achieve their final size. Many women buys bras slowly so they can easily replace them as their size changes.
