Do Breast Implants Get Bigger After Surgery? The first few days after breast augmentation are exciting. The biggest breasts you have wanted for a long time are finally here! At the same time, you may be so excited about your new size that you worry that your breasts may get smaller as they heal. After breast implants, it is time to love your new body and we hope you will embrace the new confidence that your new breast gives you. But what if do breast implants get bigger after surgery?
Having this desire may surprise you, but in reality it is not so rare. Many women undergo breast augmentation surgery and then decide that they really want a bigger size.
If you are feeling shy or nervous about this, here are some questions to consider before approaching your surgeon.
The Sizing Process
When you go to the consultation appointment, you can “try” the sizes. This is usually the most time consuming part of the process. Women can try breast implants called “sizers”, which are neoprene bags full of beads to place under their clothes to get an idea of what they would like. Of course, women who are thinking of almost tripling the size of their breasts are advised not to do so, as complications can occur for a long time.
Your body needs time to adjust to the changes and the transition from size A to D may not be the right answer for your body, so it is important to set realistic goals for the size you choose. The frame of your body, the size, the weight and the anatomy of the breast also play a role in the size of your implants. However, there are many women who later decide to increase their size and this is sometimes easier when the skin has managed to stretch with the first round.
Am I waiting for a suitable time?
As you know, breast augmentation surgery requires recovery time. You have (and probably still have) aches, pains and bloating.
- First of all, it would not be ideal to undergo surgery while still experiencing pain and soreness from another surgery. You want this pain to go away long before you do it again.
- Most importantly, the swelling from the initial surgery must disappear completely before you visit again. Operation on swollen tissues and skin can cause problems with an abnormal and incorrect size.
- This usually lasts at least three months, sometimes up to six months. If in doubt, it’s not bad to wait, just to make sure all the swelling is down.
Do I know how much bigger I want to go?
Do you fully understand how much you want to go? You do not want bad communication between you and your surgeon!
The procedure you are considering is called breast implant review surgery. If you want to grow, the implants go up from cc. The 200 cc have about 1 1/2 cup sizes.
If you are considering breast implant recurrence surgery, find out what new, larger size you want.
Do I have complications?
Breast implant review surgery is for women who want to grow up and women who suffer from complications from their initial procedures. It is important to distinguish whether your new procedure is just about enlarging your size, resolving complications, or both.
Of course, the procedure is simpler if you just increase the size of your breast. Talk to your surgeon about any complications you may have. Discuss openly the high and low levels of your treatment process.
Your absolute honesty can make a difference in the audit process. You want the best of the best and you want it done right, so don’t cut corners!
The swelling is normal
Swelling is your body’s natural response to trauma and is a normal part of the healing process. The maximum swelling is usually in the first 2-3 days after surgery, after which point it begins to subside. The amount of swelling varies from patient to patient and will be greater when the implant is placed under the muscle.
Immediately after surgery, everything is a little more elevated. The chest is swollen. The main muscle of the swollen breast is Within two to three weeks, much of the swelling subsides.
As the swelling subsides, the breasts appear to recede, taking on a more natural shape. The shape and feel of the breast will continue to improve as the skin, muscles and tissue of the breast relax around the implant over time.
As the swelling subsides, new breasts form
It is important to realize that the swelling may fall faster on one breast than the other. Women who are right-handed, for example, may find that their right breasts remain slightly swollen as they use the muscles more on the right side of their body. Movements such as brushing your hair and knocking on a car door with your right hand activate all the right chest muscles. If the breasts initially appear in two different sizes, it is often the swelling that subsides faster from one side to the other.
When to get fitted underwear
Unsurprisingly, many patients are excited to be given a new bra after surgery. As tempting as the rush of the procedure can be, it is important to give yourself time to heal as the swelling subsides and the breasts continue to change.
It may take three to six months for the swelling to completely subside and your implants to fall into place.
