If you find yourself asking “Should I get breast implants?” and the answer is an enthusiastic “Yes!”, then congratulations are in order, you have decided to have your first breast augmentation!
Before you burn your a-cup bras, buy your new bikini, and schedule your breast enhancement surgery, read on to learn what to know about breast implants. When considering breast implant surgery, it is important to take the time to research what the exactly procedure entails, what to expect immediately following surgery, and years down the road.
You have decided to take control of your look and go through with your breast augmentation. Before you go bra shopping, do your homework. Find a trusted plastic surgeon, look at their before and after pictures, and ask the right questions. Make sure you ask about the costs associated with your breast implant surgery such as facility fees, and anesthesia.
Year after year, breast augmentation with implants consistently ranks as one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the United States. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons recently reported that there were over 270,000 breast augmentations performed in 2015, maintaining a wide lead ahead of every other cosmetic surgery in the US.
Though immensely popular, there are a handful of things that people are not aware of when it comes to breast implants, for example, the fact that they may glow in the dark.
A good candidate for breast implants is in a good state of physical and mental health, has weighed the pros and cons of getting a boob job, and has decided to undergo breast augmentation surgery for the right reasons, such as:
Deciding to undergo breast augmentation is a big step; one that can bring about positive changes such as: improved self-image, sexual satisfaction, and boost confidence. Finding the right surgeon will ensure that your results are natural and proportionate to your figure.
Not everyone is a great candidate for surgery. Your surgeon will take into account several medical, physical, and psychological factors prior to clearing you for your breast augmentation surgery.
At Jolie we encourage all breast augmentation candidates to carefully review their surgeon’s patient requirements. Each surgeon has different standards all designed with patient safety and satisfaction in mind. Below are some general factors to consider.
Your overall health is not great factors such as drug use, being overweight, and other lifestyle elements which negatively impact your overall health may deter your surgery.
Your doctor may recommend you start exercising, taking vitamin supplements, and recommend positive lifestyle changes to ensure your procedure is successful. Other deterrents may include:
Ideally, patients in the process of losing weight should be at their goal weight for a minimum of 3 months for best results.
They won’t last forever The lifespan of breast implants can vary from patient to patient. The longer you have them, the greater the risk for complications. It is normal for patients to schedule additional procedures for adjustments within ten years of their initial breast implant surgery. In some rare instances, breast implants have lasted upwards of 25 years.
Do your homework Learn everything you can about the type of implant you are considering. Contemplate fillers, risks involved, and warnings. The Food and Drug Administration advises medical professionals to provide patients with full product labeling from the manufacturer. Take your time to review this information.
Consult your surgeon Choose a trusted surgeon. Ask questions regarding implant shape, size, and surface texture. Be open with your surgeon about past surgeries and discuss your expectations. Make a plan with your surgeon in order to achieve optimal breast implant results the first time.
You may gain weight the larger the breast implants you select, the more weight you may gain. Don't freak out! Weight gain after breast augmentation surgery is normal and at most a couple of pounds. For example, a 450 cubic centimeters, or cc’s, a saline breast implant weighs in at roughly 1.3 pounds, not to mention the shell's weight of 15 to 25 grams.
Breast implants can potentially interfere with mammograms, breast feeding and breast self-examinations.
Monitoring Post-operative and long term care are essential components to your safety and directly impact the longevity of your breast implants. If you experience any abnormal symptoms you should contact your health care provider right away.
It might mean a tax break in a groundbreaking IRS tax case, the entertainer and exotic dancer, Chesty Love, was able to write off her breast implants as a business expense, since larger breasts meant a larger profits.

Consult a tax professional or the IRS for details.
