By now you’re probably aware that breast augments can be a very risky and potentially life-threatening procedure.
There are countless complications associated with the procedure.
A recent study published in the Journal of Surgery revealed that the majority of women who received a breast implant had to have it done within 24 hours.
But what’s the best time to do it?
The American Academy of Breast Surgery suggests that you should start your procedure in a time that is ideal for the body.
“The ideal time to have a breast-surgery is between the ages of 15 and 50,” said Dr. William J. Hagen, MD, a surgeon and associate professor of surgery at the University of Washington in Seattle.
“Most of the people who have breast augs don’t go to the age where they are very mature enough to have to have that procedure.”
For most women, having a procedure done in the first month after childbirth will be a safe, comfortable and routine way to start.
Hager says that in some cases, the patient might not have the full range of movement necessary to make the decision about whether to have surgery.
“In other cases, there might be concerns that the patient may be able to move their body,” he said.
However, Dr. Hagan says that for those women who do decide to have breast surgery, there are some specific guidelines to follow that should help to make your decision easier.
“There are some important things to remember that should make the surgery a safe and good choice,” he explained.
“For women who are at a lower risk of breast cancer, there should be a plan to get started on early intervention to help with their recovery.””
You should also talk to your doctor about the specific risks and benefits of having a breast surgery. “

If you or someone you know has a medical condition that can affect your ability to have or receive breast implants, consult with your healthcare provider. “
Once you have the surgeon evaluate you, the first thing you want to do is talk to them about what is happening to your breast and the risk and benefits, which you should do as part of the discussion with the doctor.”

Hagers guidelines for women with the following medical conditions: “Women with pre-existing conditions such as breast cancer who have had breast augmented surgery are at increased risk of developing complications, including bleeding or scarring of the breast.”
“Women of any age who have not had surgery in the past 12 months are at risk of bleeding or scars, as is the case with many other breast implants.”
“Any type of trauma, such as a broken bone, injury, or infection, may lead to scarring or bleeding.”
