Some people love to follow trends in fashion and beauty. It can be fun, even fascinating, to see how styles come and go. One year, we’re all about the bootcut jeans. The next, we won’t wear anything but slim-fit. The trends that we see in the area of beauty don’t end with what we wear or hair we style our hair. Trends have also influenced how people approach plastic surgery. Though some minor details of breast enhancement have changed over time, one thing remains certain: breast enhancement is always on-trend. Here, we point out why that may be.
- It doesn’t take much to recover from breast surgery. Whether you want breast surgery to gain volume and shape, reduce size, or give yourself a lift, you can expect to spend only a few weeks in a recovery phase. During these few weeks, you may take prescription pain medication for a couple of days. Most patients switch to over-the-counter medication within a week. Other restrictions include avoiding exercise for up to 6 weeks, resuming gradually beginning about one month after surgery. You may be ready to return to work 7 to 10 days after your breast surgery.
- Breast surgeries are safe. The various breast procedures that are commonly performed today are safe, with few potential risks. Breast implants have been enhanced over time to achieve a beautiful shape with little risk of silicone leakage in the event of a rupture. This comes thanks to the development of cohesive gel implants.
- The results look and feel natural. Trends in breast surgery have changed somewhat. A few decades ago, women who had breast enlargement looked like they had breast enlargement! Today, virtually every patient we meet asks for enhancement that suits their natural body-frame. The ideal look and feel are achieved through multiple details, from implant type to projection to material.
