Is Breast Augmentation Worth It To You

Are You Interested in Breast Augmentation?

breat augmentation surgeryBreast augmentation has been the most popular surgery procedure and the most rewarding for women to feel beautiful with all their new curves. When considering breast implants consider researching for a good surgeon and sit down for a consultation so he can guide you through your options.

Some things to ask is how many procedures this Doctor has done over a period of weeks or months. Also, is he a board-certified specialist in his field.

One of the health risks with breast implants is that you do not self-check your breast for lumps with accuracy. With that said you can have a higher chance of breast cancer because implants can interfere with the detection of lumps.

Make sure you have a plan after breast surgery to take care of yourself after any cosmetic surgery. Whether it’s breast augmentation, tummy tuck, or rhinoplasty the care is very important with any major surgery. Make sure you take time from work or business to help your surgery heal properly. Make sure you have plenty of rest. You can also have family members help support you at home while you recover.

Women always want to look beautiful and confident and this is the reason people want to get plastic surgery. They’re not happy with their appearance and they want to enhance the way you look. There are many ways to boost self-confidence from breast lift, liposuction, or rhinoplasty

Getting old is inevitable and your surgeries will become more clear. As you know breast implant only last around 10 years, so know of the risks as time goes on of possible leaks or rupture. You can’t stop time, but you will need to take care of yourself to remain good looking as time goes on.

Just to give you an idea of how many women get breast implants in 2015 American women were getting about 627K breast implants which equates to 1 in 250 women received cosmetic surgery.

Remember all surgeries have risks or complications which include things like

  • Hematoma
  • damaged nerves
  • scaring
  • implant failure
  • infection or death

What is plastic/cosmetic surgery:

Plastic surgery or cosmetic surgery is focused primarily on repairing deformities, correcting functional parts of our body, and helping you enhance your appearance. It does not confine most specialist to one part of the body. A plastic surgeon either does reconstructive or aesthetic surgery to help improve one’s physical appearances. A cosmetic surgeon most often focuses on people who want to improve in their appearance.

Don’t forget to plan for your plastic surgery recovery and what to expect from the outcome of your surgery, this can surely affect your health and the surgeon’s work. Make sure you follow exactly what the doctor’s instructions tells you.

Note: we must follow any post procedures from any plastic surgery with much-needed care and plenty of rest so your body may heal from the trauma of surgery.

Are you changing your appearance?

rhinoplastyWhen looking to change your appearance one of the first things that comes to mind is a nose job (rhinoplasty). This is where someone wants to improve their appearance by reshaping their nose. This can mean anything from crooked, bumpy, resizing, or even reshaping a hump in your nose to better your facial structure (nose job simulator). Recovery can be a little long sometimes about 3 weeks and complication are rarely an issue.

When changing your appearance there are many surgical procedures that can be done. Here are just a few that are common.

  • Rhinoplasty (nose job)
  • Lip augmentation AKA French lips
  • Chin/cheek augmentation
  • Ear pinning
  • Brow lifts
  • European skin peels

What about skin care?

There are many innovated developments in skin care products from a dermatologist and plastic surgeons. As you know there are a large variety of anti-aging skin products to help in the damaging effects from our environment.

The most popular skin care products are the ones that help in cell damage. There are many opinions from both dermatologist and plastic surgeons. The most common are ones that offer a brighter complexion and a deep cleansing along with exfoliation.

  • Brightening mask
  • Daily cleansing mask
  • Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs)
  • Glycolic acid

skin careThere are many products out there that offer brightening mask and a daily cleanser is known as alpha hydroxy that brightens your complexion.

Alpha hydroxy acids are formulated from both natural and synthetics ingredients which exfoliate the outer layers of your skin. Over time, this procedure will make your skin much smoother and more hydrated and firmer. This is something you can do daily to keep yourself looking younger.

Glycolic acid is the cat’s meow, this is the one that has the most proven research of all skin care products with the best track record, and I recommend it for all ages.

Here are some Glycolic benefits:

  • Very effective for skin treatments
  • Can be used with other skincare products
  • Derived from plants to help treat skin conditions
  • I use often glycolic Acid to treat scarring (great for after plastic surgery)
  • Helps in replenishing any lost moisture
  • Assists with boosting collagen production

Here’s an overview of some of these acids which are found in a variety of fruits naturally

  • Alpha hydroxy acids can be found in citrus fruits
  • Glycolic acids are found in sugar cane
  • Lactic acids are in sour milk and tomato juice
  • Malic acids are in apples
  • Tartaric acids can be found in grapes

How it all works?

Most of these acids work by removing mostly the top layers of dead skin cells. While increasing the firmness and thickness of deeper layers of your skin.
