What is Udder Augmentation?
Udder Augmentation is performed to enlarge small, underdeveloped,
uneven udders, or those that have become uneven after long strainous calfrearing.
By Surgically inserting an implant behind the Udder, results can be dramatic,
depending on your preference. You most certinally can have larger, firmer,
fuller udders after udder augmentation.
How does it work?
Udder Augmentation usually starts with an incision under the
udder, around the a quarter of the base under the hair. A pocket is created
for the implant behind the entire udder mass tissue, or behing a muscle
between the udder and chest wall. Depending on the type and manufacturer
of your udder implant, it may already be filled and placed inside the
pocket as is, or may be flat and then rolled while attached to small tube.
This type of implant allows the surgeon to insert the implant through
a very small incisin and tunnel it under your skin, and fill it with fluid
to the desired size. The small tub is removed and the udder imlant remains
filled and permanently sealed.
And how about after it's done?
Udder Augmentation is usually performed as inbarn surgery. Following
the surgery, you will wear approximatly 15 pounds of gauze dressing and
a XXXXL Surgical Bra. This type bra will be worn for several weeks after
surgery. Swelling and discoloration will occur but will subside. Vigorous
activies, which are quite uncommon to Bovine, should be avioded.
What should I ask my cosmetic Farmers' Surgeon?
Beggers can not be choosers. There is a limited amount of Surgeons
out there. However, you still have the limited luxury of choosing one.
- Is the Implant Fluid Dairy Safe?
- How long until I may nurse again?
- Are you a Vegetarian?
- Can I get a Doctors' Note for the Bull?
First, it's very important to make sure the fluid is Dairy Safe. Accidents
unfortunatly do happen, and when they do, you do not wish to put your
calf in jepordy.
Speaking of nursing, you may want to make sure that you
will be fully recovered from Surgery before allowing the little calves
to pull and yank on your teats. Nothing could be more unexpected than
having to return to Surgery for fixing a torn udder.
Farmer Wilcox (right) has been under investigation by the Bovine Freedom
Coalition, for having a high fatality rate with simple bovine related
surgeries. Further research found he is also a two time first place winner
in the Kentucky Bar B Que Cook off. Cowsmopolitan.com can't stress enough
that you should really get to know your surgeon!
Most Farmers' Surgeons never make enough money to make ends meet, and
sadly a few may not have YOUR best interest in mind. Be sure to further
validate their professionalism by picking only those that don't look at
you like you're some sort of dish.
And as always, it's a cows life in the Herd, and pleasing your bull is
one of them. Be sure to get as much proof for that Persistant Bull in
the herd to know that you're now quite up to his activities. A note may
not help matters, so try to graze sitting down and hiding behind other
Will he Notice?
Lets be honest. You didn't do all this solely for your self esteem did
you, after all, you are a cow. You want the bull to notice you!
Well, most bulls don't actually look at the size of a Heifers' Udder,
unless they are really into that sort of thing (17% is the latest estimate).
What really matters to the Bull is how stetched out your udder is. It
isnt' common for a Heifer to bear a dozen calves in her lifetime, however
you don't want to look like that - a good surgeon will tighten up those
stetched teats for a small fee.
Finding a Mid Heifer
There are rumors your milk will turn sour after the implants. If you were
smart enough to ensure the fluid is a dairy safe mixture, then by all
means continue nurseing your calf, and once they are on their own, visit
the Surgeon again for a little repairs.
