For most women, feeling your best, means looking your best. And in some cases, women choose breast augmentation to help them love their appearance even more. Breast augmentation can be used to enlarge the breasts to add proportionality to the body, to reshape and enlarge breasts that have lost their shape due to breastfeeding, and to balance breasts that differ in size and/or shape.
The results of breast augmentation can be stunning and most women will work with their medical team to ensure the outcome looks naturally beautiful. Every woman considering breast augmentation has very personal reasons for doing so, which is why you should speak with your physician about your own needs, desires, and expectations, if you are considering breast augmentation surgery.
Types of Breast Implants
There are many different types of implants that you will want to discuss with your physician. One of the most common kinds include gel-filled breast implants. These implants use cohesive gel to help them hold their shape. With these implants, your options range from cohesive level 1 (softest) to cohesive level 3 (firmest). Your physician can advise you on best choice for your personal situation. In addition to gel cohesiveness, there are other options to consider as well, such as implant shapes and implant surfaces.
Choosing a Physician You Trust
When consulting with a physician about breast augmentation surgery, ask your physician all the questions that come to mind. For instance, you may ask them how long they have been performing breast implant procedures, and how many they perform each year (on average). This will help you gauge their experience level. You can then ask them about possible risks and complications, along with all of your options for breast augmentation.
At The Plastic Surgery Practice, we can help guide you through important questions like the shape, size, surface texturing, incision site, and recommended placement site for your body. We can also discuss personal considerations with you, such as whether breast feeding will be affected.
