Breast augmentation procedures with implants are some of the most popular cosmetic surgeries performed in the United States. This is because they help women feel more confident in their bodies. Your reason for opting for an augmentation may be based on a variety of medical or aesthetic needs.
You may simply want to have a larger bust size or have a way to better balance your bust with your hips. Breast augmentation can give you naturally beautiful proportions and balance out other parts of your body that you may not like very well. In addition, an augmentation can make each breast the same size. This procedure can also be used to improve breast size when size decreases due to natural aging, pregnancy or breastfeeding or following a mastectomy.
Whatever your reason is for seeking breast augmentation, you will have many choices to consider. The shape and size of your breasts is fully your decision, although our surgeon will help you think through what would work best for you. Most patients opt to go up one or two cup sizes. However, we customize each treatment for your needs and ultimate body goals.
Another choice you will have to make is what type of implant you will want. Today, two main types of implants are offered. Each type of implant is perfectly safe and approved by the FDA. Your choice should be based on how you want your breasts to look and how often you are willing to have your breasts monitored.
Silicone implants are favored by many women and may be your best option, but it all depends on the unique situation. These implants are filled with a silicone gel that many say feels more natural than the saline implant does. If something happens to the implant, your body will not naturally reabsorb the silicone, and you will have to see our cosmetic surgeon again. However, your breast will not collapse if this happens.
