Interesting facts about getting a boob job
Undergoing breast enlargement surgery or a ‘boob job’, as it’s often known, is one of the most popular and routine forms of plastic surgery.
Many people opt to undergo the surgery to increase the size or reshape the appearance of their breasts, with many finding the results of their surgery greatly enhance their confidence and self-esteem after.
With so many celebrities having undergone the procedure and possibly even family or friends, you might think you know everything there is to know about the procedure. Below we’ve listed some interesting – and relatively unknown – facts about getting a boob job so that you have everything you need in mind when making the decision to undergo surgery.
Your first may not be your last
Your first breast enhancement surgery very likely won’t be your last. Depending on the age you undergo the procedure and your reasons for surgery, you could be in the 25% of people who need to undergo a further surgery in 10 years. This is simply because breast implants don’t last forever, and not having the surgery redone could cause serious medical issues. You may develop scar tissue around the surgery which changes the shape of your breasts, requiring further surgery. Other factors, including weight loss, pregnancy or simply a preference change between your first surgery and your current life status, could see you looking to change your look through another procedure.
Recovery might not be as long as you think!
Usually, you can return to non-manual work within 5-7 days after your surgery, but you should always follow the lead of how you feel and your GP’s advice before you go back. If, however, you’ve chosen to opt for the implant behind the muscle instead of on top, it can take a little longer for recovery. This procedure is usually opted for as there is less chance of a situation called a ‘scar shell’ forming around the implant, which can cause complications down the line.
Try before you buy!
You can decide which size you’d like your breast implants to be by trying ‘sizers’ stuffed into your bra to see how the shape will look. These are usually a bead-filled neoprene sack, which helps to give an idea of how your chest will look after surgery.
