Should I get a Boob Job?

Your breasts are one of the most important features in defining your appearance and femininity. Today, breast enlargement surgery, otherwise referred to as breast augmentation (a.k.a ‘A boob job’), is an incredibly popular option for women who were not naturally graced with the curves they want. Nearly everyone knows at least one friend who has undergone the procedure, and countless surgeons offer the procedure at their practice.

You’ve been wondering whether a boob job is the right procedure for you for some time. There are so many factors, questions and concerns on your mind, but Dr Damon Thomas has the answers that will help you make the right choice for you.

Do you have?

  • Smaller breasts than you desire?
  • Sagging breasts after your pregnancy?
  • Breasts that are not in proportion with the rest of your figure?
  • Malaligned, mismatched or asymmetrical breasts?
  • A low sense of confidence and self-esteem due to the shape, size or feel of your breasts?

Whether you have answered “yes” to one of these questions or all five, breast augmentation may an excellent option for you. This procedure adds fullness and size to the breasts, while correcting asymmetries and creating a more attractive upper body profile.

What happens before surgery?

Before your breast augmentation procedure takes place, Dr Damon Thomas will conduct a thorough assessment of your breasts and body proportions to ensure that your goals are realistic and achievable. During this initial consultation, all decisions surrounding the surgery will be discussed, options analysed and questions answered. The number of choices that must be made prior to breast enlargement may feel overwhelming, but Dr Thomas will walk you through each step so you are comfortable with your options. He will explain the difference between implant types, sizes, shapes, projection, implant placement and incision placement. You and Dr Thomas will create the right surgical plan for you, depending on your precise needs and aesthetic goals.

All these variables are options that make your breast augmentation unique to you and your body. Through a thorough discussion of your needs and wants with Dr Damon Thomas during your consultation, he will be able to tailor your procedure to meet your expectations.

What happens during surgery?

Performed under general anaesthesia, many patients are permitted to return home the same day as their breast augmentation procedure. Some may prefer an overnight stay, however. The decision is up to you, the complexity of your procedure and your individual recovery process.

What happens after surgery?

After your breast augmentation has been completed, you will need to wear a surgical bra to hold the breasts in a stable and safe position during your recovery period. Medications will be prescribed to alleviate discomfort during the early days of your recovery. Dr Thomas will advise you to refrain from strenuous physical activity and contact sports for the first few weeks after surgery.

Every recovery process is unique, and during your initial consultation, recovery will be discussed in detail so you have an idea of what to expect and how to prepare for your recuperation.
