If you lead an active lifestyle, it is important that you discuss your exercise preferences with your plastic surgeon before committing to breast augmentation.
NEW YORK, NY, August 29, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- If you lead an active lifestyle, it is important that you discuss your exercise preferences with your plastic surgeon before committing to breast augmentation. There are certain breast implant options that will reduce your risk of issues following augmentation, but the one best for you will depend on the type of exercise you prefer.
Breast Implant Options
The two placement options for breast implants are subglandular (above the muscles in the chest) and submuscular (below the muscles in your chest). If you are a weight lifter or engage in exercise that requires constant flexion of chest muscles, subglandular placement will best suit your needs. However, if you engage in certain contact sports, submuscular may be your best option. Since there are innumerable variations on this theme, it is important that you discuss placement with your plastic surgeon to avoid issues such as premature implant failure.
The size of your implants can also impact your athletic performance. Studies conducted in the 1980s found that overly-large implants decreased competitive times for swimmers. Breast implants that are too large may also limit your range of motion or interfere with the length of your reach. It is important that you discuss breast implant size with your plastic surgeon to prevent unintentionally limiting your athletic prowess.
Working with an Experienced Plastic Surgeon
Breast augmentation must meet your aesthetic, emotional, and physical needs for it to be effective. This requires a plastic surgeon who listens carefully to both your desires and your requirements, and is able to combine them with both artistry and skill to provide you with a solution that enhances every area of your life.
Exercise with breast implants is not impossible, but breast augmentation may not be right for every athlete. Working with a board-certified plastic surgeon who values your ultimate happiness is the best way to determine if breast implants are right for you.
