Feeling and Looking Younger

After I finished having my kids, I knew that I wanted a mommy makeover. My stomach was in terrible shape, my arms looked completely destroyed, and my legs had been carrying weight for years. I wanted a full body overhaul, so I started by doing what I could to look and feel younger. I started exercising each and every day, and then I worked hard on doing my hair and makeup better. It was amazing to see the difference it made, but I wanted something more. I consulted with a cosmetic surgeon, and I scheduled the surgery that changed my life for the better.

4 Steps To Getting A Breast Augmentation

It's important that you're happy with the way your body looks. If you wish that you had fuller breasts, a breast augmentation is an option to consider. Before you schedule a breast augmentation, you should know what to expect from the process. Here are four steps you'll go through when you decide to get a breast augmentation:

1. Research doctors

The doctor you choose for your procedure makes a big difference. When looking for doctors, try to find doctors who are highly rated by former patients. If possible, look at doctors' portfolios before making a decision. If you see that a doctor's patients have the kind of look that you'd like from your breast augmentation, that's a good sign the doctor will be able to give you those results, too.

2. Find inspiration pictures

Telling your doctor that you want a B cup or a C cup isn't very helpful since different people have varying ideas of what cup sizes look like. Instead of telling your doctor cup sizes, find pictures of breasts that you like. Bring several examples so your doctor can get a good idea of your aesthetic preferences. This can help them suggest implants to give you the correct look.

3. Go for a consultation

Before you schedule a breast augmentation, you'll have to go to your desired plastic surgeon for your initial consultation. During this appointment, your doctor will take your vitals and basic measurements. They'll ask you about your goals and desired outcome from the procedure; this is a great time to show your doctor the pictures you found earlier in your process. You'll be given a fitting bra to try on different sizes of implants. Together, you and your doctor will decide on the implants that will give you the desired effect. Depending on your body shape and goals, you'll have to choose between low-, moderate-, and high-profile implants.

4. Schedule your appointment

Finally, it's time to schedule your appointment. Your doctor will use the information you gave them at your consultation to construct a treatment plan for you. They'll ask you to confirm your desired breast implant size once again, and all the details will be finalized. On the day of your surgery, you'll be asked to refrain from eating and drinking in order to ensure your safety during general anesthesia. Your procedure will only take an hour or two, and you'll be able to go home on the same day.
