The Stigma is Gone
Nearly 400,000 woman and teens have had breast augmentations done since 2014 alone. That is an astonishing number and definitely shows that there is no stigma left toward having your breasts done. Women get breast augmentation in Chicago for many and varied reasons but chief among them are to increase their breast sizes, to make their shapes more balanced and to boost their self-confidence.
Recovery Generally Takes Just a Few Weeks
After you have your surgery you will go to the recovery room as you would after any procedure and be closely monitored for a few hours. Your new breasts will be wrapped with gauze and either an ace bandage or a support bra will be used to cut down on any swelling. Before you leave from your surgery site, you will get written and oral instruction regarding the care and cleaning of your breasts plus any medications and creams or ointments you need to be using. You will need to reduce your activity level for a few days as instructed by your surgeon and should expect soreness and swelling for a few weeks.
Types of Breast Implants
There are a variety of breasts implants and which type you end up using is a decision to be made by both you and your surgeon. Saline implants are full of sterile saline water, stable in shape and are FDA approved for women over 18. Silicone Implants are gel filled, feel more like a real breast, these do need to be checked regularly and are FDA approved for women 22 or older. Gummy bear implants are filled with a thicker gel, maintain their shape even if the form breaks and require a longer cut in your skin. Smooth implants give you the softest feeling and can move within the pocket which give more natural movement,
