Breast Augmentation: Important Things You Need To Know

Breast augmentation is one of the forms of cosmetic surgery. This surgery is done for increasing the size of your breast or for improving its shape. Many women have claimed that this surgery made them feel more confident about themselves. It is also known as ‘breast aug’ or breast implant. This procedure can be done by a cosmetic surgeon who is a specialist in this field. Sometimes after pregnancy or weight reduction, the breast volume and shape is lost. In this case, a breast aug surgery can be quite helpful for retaining the right shape and volume. This surgery can:

  • Increase the projection as well as the fullness of your breasts.
  • Improve and correct balance of hip and breast contours
  • Enhance the self-confidence and self-image.

Different implants used

There are different types of breast implants that are used during the breast augmentation surgery for enhancing the shape of the breasts. One of the kinds is silicone breast implants in OKC that have elastic gel in them. This can make your breast soft just like the natural breasts. You can choose from the different shapes and sizes of the implants available. These silicones are filled with a gel just before the procedure begins.
Another one is the saline implant which is filled with sterile water instead of the silicone or gel. This sterile water is safe for your body. In case this saline implant ruptures, the water can be easily absorbed into your body. It doesn’t have any negative or harmful effects. The saline implants is mainly filled during or sometimes before the procedure starts. This also feels less natural than that of the silicone implant. You will find it much firmer than the silicone one.

How the procedure is done?

Before the breast augmentation surgery starts, you will go through a blood test first. Your doctor will definitely need to know if you are taking any medication. So, you have to tell all the medicines that you take. Based on that, you will be asked to continue or discontinue the medicines. After some tests, you will be ready for the surgery. Once it is done, there are many more things that you have to notice. Post-surgery, swelling and soreness is quite common to happen. Even you can notice some bruises too. You can expect these scars to gradually fade with time. But they may not disappear completely. When healing, you will be instructed with a dozen of dos and don’ts. You have to follow each of them and make sure that you are not doing something which is told not be done.


Few weeks after the breast augmentation are very crucial. Also, you need to have a clear idea about what you want to do. As mentioned above, there are different types of implants and shapes. You need to decide on what is right for you. Even you need to choose the right size that you want to have for your breasts. It is better to discuss with the top plastic surgeons in OKC about the shapes, sizes and types of implants way before the surgery starts. The surgeon will have a clear idea about what you are exactly looking for.
