Many Austin women consider getting a boob job. Whether they’ve always had small breasts and desired bigger ones, or have experienced a loss of volume in their breasts due to pregnancy, weight loss or aging, a boob job can be a plastic surgery procedure that boosts an Austin woman’s confidence and self-esteem. In fact, performing boob jobs is one of the most common procedures performed by Dr. Tjelmeland of Meridian Plastic Surgery.
Deciding That a Boob Job is Right for You
It can be difficult to decide if you want to get a boob job or not. Even if you’re an Austin woman who is unhappy with her natural breasts, a boob job is still a major surgery that takes extensive thought and planning. Many Austin women decide that a boob job is the right choice for them because:
- They have low self-esteem because of their current look and silhouette;
- They feel uncomfortable in bathing suits and low-cut tops because their natural boobs don’t fill them out;
- They have noticeably asymmetrical breasts and are embarrassed that this difference in size is obvious to others; and
- Their natural boobs used to be bigger or perkier, but look different now after pregnancy, weight loss or aging.
If you fall into one of the above categories – or more – then getting a boob job just may be the right decision for you.
A Boob Job Consultation – Your First Step to Getting the Breasts You Want
Once you’ve decided that you want to get a boob job, or at least explore the option further, the first thing you should do is make a consultation appointment with board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Tjelmeland of Meridian Plastic Surgery. During this initial consultation, Dr. Tjelmeland will perform a full breast examination, listen to how you want your boobs to look, and answer any questions you may have. Based on your preferences – including photos or magazine clippings of the size and style of bust you want to achieve – Dr. Tjelmeland will make several recommendations for your boob job surgery.
The Boob Job Procedure
When you’ve decided to go forth with getting a boob job, Dr. Tjelmeland will perform your procedure a Meridian Plastic Surgery Center in Austin. For your comfort, you will be placed under anesthesia so that you are asleep during your boob job surgery. Dr. Tjelmeland will perform your surgery based on the unique choices you two made during your pre-operative appointment including:
- Using either silicone or saline breast implants for your boob job surgery;
- Where to place your incision; and
- Placing the breast implant either under your breast tissue or under your chest
Recovering from Your Boob Job Surgery
Getting a boob job is a major surgery, and it’ll take time for you to recover from your procedure. When you initially wake up from your boob job surgery, your breasts will usually feel tight and sore. Don’t worry, Dr. Tjelmeland will prescribe you pain medication. Also, this discomfort will typically only last for 3 to 5 days.
You’ll need to rest for the first few days after your boob job surgery, and you won’t be able to lie on your stomach for quite a while. Instead, Dr. Tjelmeland recommends his boob job patients, sleep on their back with their upper back elevated with pillows.
You’ll be able to return to work or school about 5 days after your boob job surgery, and resume light exercise around 10 days post-op. Strenuous exercise won’t be able to be resumed until around 4 weeks after your boob job surgery.
