The ‘Boob Job’ – And What You Should Know About It

Spread the love

As a woman, you most likely have considered what is known as a boob job at some point in your life. It might have been during your awkward teenage years when puberty did not yet begin for you, or it might have been after you realized puberty really did nothing for you. Whether you were serious or not in your deliberations, you have to agree that you have thought about the procedure at once – such is the importance society, and women at large, have placed on breasts. Whilst the global average in breast size is definitely nothing impressive (hint: the B-cup size is the average), many women still feel inadequate about their own chest size. It is a common enough insecurity shared by many – and of course, you also have to factor in the insecurities faced by trans-women, who will naturally feel far more inadequately than a cis-woman in this regard. As such, the artificial augmentation of breasts through surgery, namely through the use of breast implants Melbourne price is nothing new or unheard of. That being said, many women are still often uninformed when making their choices (and a lot of this has to with the spread of misinformation in today’s age). Below are some very important things you should know about this specific procedure:

The procedure can be quite expensive – as you would know, plastic surgery is usually on the more expensive side of medical procedures, especially given the fact that most of them are invasive procedures that involve hospital stays and significant recovery periods. Furthermore, most insurance companies and insurance-related laws, regardless of the country, tend to view these cosmetic procedures as ‘elective’ and ‘optional’ procedures. In other words, most of the time, you will find that these procedures won’t be covered by your medical insurance, and warrant an out-of-pocket expense for you.

You will likely need a few more procedures in the coming years – if you believe a boob job is a one-time affair, then you are mistaken: it is quite common for women who have had augmentation procedures done on their breasts to come back in for refills, adjustments, etc. The reason is quite simple – the implants in question are made of surgical-grade silicon, but they tend to lose their shape or ‘leak’ over the years. Not to add, bodily changes over the years might also alter their overall look. And lastly, there is also the fact that preferences change over the years – you might want to opt-out of your implants (yes, the procedure is reversible).

Breastfeeding might be impeded as a result – you might have heard of this warning, and your expert surgeon will definitely inform you of this. Depending on the nature of your surgery, there is a chance that your ducts connected to the mammary gland get damaged, and this in turn, makes breastfeeding impossible. Of course, not all augmentation procedures lead to this, but it is a possible risk you should keep in mind (especially if you are planning on having kids in the near future).
