Top Cosmetic Questions For 2006 - Articles Surfing
The following information is meant to provide a basic understanding of breast augmentation surgery. If you have further questions, make a list and bring it with you to your Denver breast augmentation surgery consultation appointment.
Q: Am I a good candidate for breast augmentation?
A: If you're in good overall health and you have realistic expectations about what breast augmentation can and cannot achieve, then according to Denver breast augmentation doctors, you likely are a good candidate. Most women who seek breast augmentation have either never achieved a desirable breast size or have experienced a decrease in the amount of breast tissue after pregnancy or after losing weight. Age generally is not a factor as long as your health is good.
Q: Does breast augmentation hurt?
A: Breast augmentation surgery does not usually hurt because you will be given either general or local anesthesia. You likely will experience noticeable pain for a few days following the procedure and your breast augmentation surgeon can prescribe medication.
Q: What are the most common side effects of breast augmentation?
As is the case with any type of surgery, breast augmentation will produce swelling, tenderness, pain and bruising, all of which usually subside after 1 ' 2 weeks. A few patients develop bleeding, an infection and/or a change in nipple sensitivity.
Q: Will breast augmentation cause me to lose sensitivity in my nipples?
A: Women who have undergone breast augmentation usually experience a short-term change in the nipple or breast's sensitivity. Some experience increased sensitivity while others experience a decrease. In rare instances a woman will experience complete and permanent loss of nipple sensitivity after breast augmentation surgery.
Q: Why should I choose a Board Certified Denver Plastic Surgeon?
A: The simple answer is because a surgeon who is board certified has a minimum of 7 ' years of additional training after graduating medical school. To be certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, a Denver plastic surgeon must: have graduated from an accredited medical school; have completed an internship and residency program in general surgery or otolaryngology plus an approved residency in either reconstructive or plastic surgery; and have been in practice for a minimum of 2 years after graduating. In addition, the Denver plastic surgeon takes countless exams which he or she must pass. If you're interested in cosmetic surgery, be sure to consult with a surgeon who focuses on breast augmentation.
Q: How much does breast augmentation surgery cost?
A: It's nearly impossible to quote a precise cost for breast augmentation surgery because every case is different and because costs can range from state to state and also among breast augmentation surgeons. So consult with a Denver breast augmentation surgeon who can quote you exact costs for everything involved including the pre-op, the implants and medical supplies, anesthesia, any hospital costs, follow-up care, etc. Expect the entire costs of breast augmentation surgery to range between $5,000 and $8,000. Because it's most often considered a cosmetic procedure, health insurance usually won't cover breast augmentation surgery.
