How Far in Advance Should I Schedule Breast Augmentation Before My Wedding?
Many women consider undergoing breast augmentation before a big event such as a wedding, reunion, or beach vacation. Breast implants can create larger, shapelier, more proportionate breasts, which often flatter the figure and boost body confidence for any occasion. When planning breast augmentation before a special event, it is important to know how far ahead of time should you schedule your breast surgery so you can look and feel your best in your special dress!
We recommend you start looking for a board-certified plastic surgeon long before your event so that you are not making any significant medical decisions while rushed or under stress. We also suggest choosing a skilled, experienced plastic surgeon to perform your breast augmentation to help minimize any chance of complications and lead to a more satisfactory outcome. During your consultation, you must clearly communicate your cosmetic goals and timeline so that your surgeon is made fully aware of your plans. This gives him the opportunity to set reasonable expectations and develop a customized surgical strategy designed to meet your needs.
As with any surgery, breast augmentation entails recovery time that varies from patient to patient. Recovery time can be affected by a number of different factors which you and your surgeon can discuss prior to your procedure. At Regional Plastic Surgery Center, we advise leaving yourself with as much time to rest and heal as possible after breast augmentation. Following post-surgical instructions closely and attending all scheduled appointments is critical for proper healing. Though all major swelling and bruising generally resolves within six to eight weeks, the full results are typically visible between four to six months, when the breast implants have settled into their final position.
