You feel that your breasts need help. You want to have a bust that is round and full. You want to be able to fill out your bras, your bathing suit, and your favourite dress. Most importantly, you want to feel good in your skin. If you are going to be happy with your figure, it is going to need to be a permanent change that you can admire whether you wearing clothes or not.
Padded clothing and bras aren’t going to cut it. You’re thinking breast augmentation is the solution for you. Before you make any decisions on an impulse, you need to remember a few considerations. Breast augmentation is going to require surgery and you will need time to heal. You also need to think about the impact that an increase in breast size will have on your risk of sagging over time.
If You Augment Your Breasts, You May be Back for a Breast Lift Sooner
As you get older, your body is going to change. One of the most common problems that women have is sagging breasts. As you age, your body produces less collagen and elastin. As a result, the skin becomes less elastic and loses its firmness. Your breasts will begin to sag as a result.
If you have any fluctuations in weight, especially weight gain, this can cause your breasts to sag as well. Every time your weight changes, your skin stretches. Over time, it fails to snap back like it would in your younger years.
When you have a breast augmentation, you add weight to your breasts. Chances are, your breasts are going to start to droop sooner than they would have it you left them at a smaller size.
You Need to Consider the Benefits of Breast Augmentation
As you consider the possibility that you may need a breast lift sooner after breast augmentation, you need to think about the positive impact that a fuller bust can have on your life.
You can feel good about your body. You’ll have more confidence in yourself and you will like the way your clothes fit. Your partner might really enjoy your figure after breast augmentation as well.
While it’s true that your breast implants may lead to the need for a breast lift at a sooner point in time, you would experience sagging breasts if you chose not to get implants.
What Can You Do to Keep Your Breasts as Perky as Possible?
You can’t freeze time. Whether you go with natural breasts or enhance your bust, the years will fly by. You’ll notice the toll that time begins to take on your body. You can be proactive to try and hold off sagging as long as possible.
One of the best things you can do is exercise. Target your core in order to focus on the muscles that play a major role in being a support system for your breasts. You can also use a good moisturizer on your breasts every day to keep your skin as firm as possible. Don’t forget to protect your breasts with sunscreen as well.
Watch your weight. If you gain weight, you are going to put more pressure on your breasts and assist gravity in its downward pull. Take care with the bras that you wear. If your bra has too much support, it is going to do all the work. This will result in weaker muscles that don’t get to do their job. Choose a bra that fits you well. A professional bra fitting can help you to find that perfect fit.
What Can You Do if Your Breasts Don’t Look So Perky Anymore?
If your bust starts to droop, whether you have had implants or not, you can consider a breast lift. A breast lift allows your plastic surgeon to reshape your breast tissue, lift your nipples and areolas, and remove excess skin that will no longer hold your breasts up.
Once your procedure is over, you won’t get over the difference as your breasts are brought back up to where they used to be in your younger years.
You Need to Do What Makes You Happy
Breast augmentation is a personal choice. Only you can decide if this procedure will make you happy. If you feel that the benefits of breast implants far outweigh the risk of needed a breast lift sooner, you should go ahead with a transformation of your body.
If you take good care of yourself, you should be able to enjoy your enhanced bust for years to come. You can cross that bridge when you come to it if you notice you’re in need of a lift at a later time. Your plastic surgeon can perform both procedures as needed.
Have it Your Way
In the end, you will be in the driver’s seat. Your plastic surgeon will give you advice, but you need to choose what is best for you. You may decide that you don’t care about what happens later on. You’re living in the movement and you want to make the most of your body right now.
If you follow all of your plastic surgeon’s advice and lead a healthy lifestyle, you may be able to put off that breast lift as long as possible.
