For women who plan to look their best for Valentine’s Day and the beginning of spring, a breast procedure may be an appropriate choice. Valentine’s Day is a time to feel sexy and confident in your body, and a breast procedure can be the perfect gift you give yourself this Valentine’s Day celebration.

What Are the Main Types of Breast Procedures?

Breast procedures can be grouped into three main categories: breast augmentation, breast lift, and breast reduction.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation enhances the size, shape, and contour of the breasts. 

If you feel that your breasts are too small, a breast augmentation can give you the silhouette you have always wanted. This can make you feel more womanly and feminine, boosting your self-confidence.

While a full recovery can take up to six weeks, most women feel fine just one week after having a breast augmentation procedure. So, make sure you schedule correctly and get a consultation and procedure in the books before Valentine’s Day sneaks up on you!

Breast Lift

A woman may want to get a breast lift for many reasons. Breasts can start to sag due to the natural aging process, breastfeeding, significant weight loss, or genetics. Whatever the reason, a breast lift can give you back the perky breasts of your youth.

A breast lift will take a few weeks for recovery, including at least two to three weeks off of sexual activity. As a result, if you are getting a breast lift for Valentine’s Day, you’ll want to schedule it as soon as possible.

Breast Reduction

Usually, women get a breast reduction to solve what has felt like a long-lasting issue. The breasts could be causing back pain, attracting unwanted attention, or feel like they don’t match the woman’s body size. 

Whatever the reason, the majority of women who undergo a breast reduction report feeling incredibly happy with the results.

It can take up to six weeks to recover from breast reduction surgery, with at least one week needed off of work. Make sure to give yourself time to heal and be ready for your big Valentine’s Day celebrations.
