Breast augmentation is an invasive procedure that requires ample consideration. Prior to undergoing enhancement, sit down with your doctor to discuss both your surgery expectations and postoperative needs. Your surgeon should be able to give you an accurate estimate regarding the size and shape of your breasts. He should also inform you as to how long you might experience swelling, soreness, or fluid leakage, which are all normal side effects of breast augmentation. You might also ask your doctor about how to properly care for your sutures and which activities you should avoid in the weeks after surgery. Since you will be placed under anesthesia during your procedure, you will need assistance once you wake up. Make sure that a friend or family member can get you safely home and look after your needs after your breast augmentation.
