If you are thinking about getting a breast implant, you need to weigh your options carefully, and think real hard if that is really what you want. What have influenced you in going through such procedure? Are you doing that for yourself, or to impress a man? If you have thought about augmenting your breasts, then you must have felt that what you are born with is not enough. It is sad that you want to change the way you look and be like other women who have fake parts of their body. But it is your choice to make, and you probably have your reasons too. But there are things that you need to consider before you take the leap.

Breastfeeding

Having a breast implant will not obstruct your ability to produce milk, but it can greatly affect the sensitivity of the nipples and you may not be able to give your own milk to you future baby.

Options

You can choose either saline or silicone to augment you breast. Get a referral from you selected surgeon, and weigh the pros and cons of each breast implant.

Screenings

Women need to undergo breast cancer screening regularly to make sure that the disease does not reach them. But if you have a breast implant, the implants will obstruct the ability of the machine to determine if you are in prime condition or if you are suffering from breast cancer.

Temporary

Breast implants are temporary, and they do not last for a long time. You need to have periodic checkup with your doctor, and in case your implants get busted, you would need to have another breast implant to replace the damaged ones. It will be a potentially life long process, and you need to always be watchful with your breasts.
