In the 21st century, more and more women are turning to breast augmentation as a way to not only improve their overall physique, but also a way to boost their self esteem. When considering a breast augmentation surgery, it is important that your spouse, our significant other, also understand what the surgery will mean and how breast enlargement complications may impose long term health complications.
While breast enlargement surgery is relatively safe, there are a few occasions where women will suffer complications associated with complications in response to the surgery and recovery. These complications may be due to a botched surgery, may be due to infection and scarring, or the complications may be associated with rupture of the implants at a point in the future. When these breast enlargement complications arise, women often suffer from both physical as well as emotional health complications.
For the significant other, especially a spouse, it is important to understand what the risks of surgery may be and how you can support a woman who is experiencing complications. While a breast augmentation support group may be recommended to a woman who is about to undergo enlargement surgery, these same support groups will also provide information to you, as the spouse, in ways you can support in the event of complications.
In addition, be sure that you are also involved in the appointments with the plastic surgeon both before the surgery occurs as well as the follow up appointment. By being educated about the procedure and risks, you can offer more support, at home, when your loved one does sustain complications. When you begin to notice that mental health issues are of a concern, then it will also be important to seek out therapy and possibly medications that can manage and anxiety or depression that may be associated with a poor outcome to breast enlargement surgery.
While not all breast augmentation procedures result in complications, when complication do arise they often fall anywhere on a spectrum of a simple infection that is resolved with medication, to a full blown implant disproportion or rupture which can result in physical and mental health issues. When concerned about these complications, it is important to become involved even before surgery takes place so you are well versed and prepared for any poor outcome that may arise from this cosmetic surgery procedure.
