Breast augmentation surgery

The most commonly used methods for breast augmentation are silicone and fat injection into the breast. One of the most frequently asked questions is when is breast augmentation suitable for. Let’s answer those who are curious about this in this article.

How old should it be done?

The first condition for breast augmentation surgery is that the person has completed the age of 18. Previously, a person did not have the competence to make his own decision both because he was underage and breast development was not completely finished. Moreover, breast augmentation is not a mandatory health requirement. There is no upper age limit. A healthy woman can also have breast augmentation surgery at an advanced age.

In what season should it be done?

In the past, surgery was performed less often during the summer period. Now, both cars, houses and workplaces are very comfortable with air conditioning. There is no excessive sweating. That’s why it can be done every season. However, since the postoperative pool, sea and sunbathing are restricted for 1 month, it is necessary to arrange the sea holiday accordingly.

Breast augmentation before or after marriage?

If a woman is not satisfied with the size and shape of her breasts, silicone can be inserted before marriage or breast augmentation can be performed by fat injection. Some women may wonder if my wife might complain about this situation in the future. Obviously, most men would be even more satisfied if they stopped being uncomfortable with this situation. Also, the body is the woman’s own body, and she does not do this procedure to make someone else happy. That’s why breast augmentation does not matter before or after marriage.

Is breast augmentation performed during pregnancy?

Breast augmentation is not performed during pregnancy and lactation. Because it is an operation performed with general anesthesia. Breast augmentation surgery can be performed at least 3 months after the end of the breastfeeding period. There are 2 reasons for this. First, if surgery is performed on a breast that secretes milk, the risk of infection becomes too high. The second reason is that the breast, which no longer gives milk, takes its final shape at the end of this period. Thus, it becomes possible to choose the right size silicone. Or, if fat injection is to be performed, the correct amount of fat will be given to each 2 breasts in such a way as to ensure equality.

Can silicone be worn before breastfeeding, or should it be left for later?

Breast augmentation surgery does not prevent breastfeeding. Because there is no contact with the breast tissue at a level that will cause damage during the operation. Since it is attached under the muscle or under the breast, it does not affect the milk glands. It can even provide a more comfortable breastfeeding because it pushes the breast forward. But some women may think that the breast shape will deteriorate during pregnancy and breastfeeding, so breast augmentation will be wasted. To some extent, this is true. However, this problem does not occur unless there is excessive weight gain and loss. Since the breast is already small, stretching and sagging do not happen very often by overgrowing during those periods. Of course, this situation is more related to the elasticity of a woman’s skin. In addition, an attempt is made to prevent surgery by saying that the breast grows during pregnancy from around. Although the breast grows a little during pregnancy, it returns to the same level later. In fact, it often shrinks or droops more.

As a result; if there is a lot of time for pregnancy, women who do not want to spend their teenage years with small breasts should have breast augmentation before pregnancy, and if pregnancy is being considered recently, they should leave it for later. The final decision should be entirely the woman’s own.
