There are plenty of reasons that a woman might want a Baltimore breast augmentation. It can improve a person’s appearance and self-esteem. It can also fix uneven breasts. If you’re interested, here are a couple of things to consider before you go through with breast implants Maryland.

  1. Expect some discomfort, but not a significant amount

The recovery is easier than you think. Typically, the surgery takes about 1-2 hours and the recovery is only a few days. In fact, Dr. Schreiber uses waterproof dressings so that his patients can shower the next day. Even more, light cardio exercise can start at 1 week with heavy weightlifting at 4-6 weeks.

Furthermore, pain is minimal after a breast augmentation. Dr. Schreiber injects lidocaine during the procedure limiting the immediate post operative discomfort and most patients just take ibuprofen or Tylenol afterward as well.

  1. A breast augmentation is not the same as a breast lift

There are several different types of surgeries that can alter the look of the breasts. If you want your breasts to stop sagging, you might need a breast lift instead of a breast augmentation. However, many patients are great candidates for both a lift and implants at the same time! Talk to your doctor about your desired results, and they will be able to suggest the right surgery for you.

  1. There will immediate results, but some swelling may last a few months.

A Baltimore breast augmentation is a great way to increase the volume and shape of your breasts. When you wake up from surgery, you’ll immediately see the improvement! However, the implants take some time to settle and the swelling may last a few months.

  1. Cheap is not always better

It’s extremely important to go to a certified plastic surgeon for your procedure. Often times, people will go to a cheaper doctor for a discount but discover that the results aren’t as aesthetically pleasing as they desired. In some cases, the surgeries can even be dangerous. Always vet your surgeon first.

  1. May affect breastfeeding
