Whether or not to get breast augmentation surgery is an important decision for anyone to make. Before your call your plastic surgeon to set up an appointment, consider these four points:
- Type of Implant. Both silicone and saline implants are safe options on the market today. Silicone implants are filled with a silicone gel and feel closest to the feel of natural breasts. Saline implants are filled with a sterile saline solution and are generally cheaper in price than silicone implants. A consultation with your surgeon will help to determine which type of implant is best for you.
- Incision Placement. Today there are options to make breast implant incisions inconspicuous and hidden. There is a selection of incision approaches used, though the most popular include under the breast fold, around the areola, and under the armpit.
- Implant Size. Another important decision is what size of implants you want. Most patients want natural-looking results, and do not want to choose implants that are too large for their frame. During your consultation, your surgeon will take into account your individual body frame and shape to help choose which size implants are the most appropriate.
- Plastic Surgeon. The most important decision you will make before undergoing any type of cosmetic surgery is choosing which plastic surgeon is right for you. Be sure to choose an ASPS board-certified plastic surgeon. It is also important to see before and after photos of the surgeon’s work, as well as read reviews from previous patients. It is imperative that you choose a board-certified surgeon that you are comfortable with to perform your breast augmentation surgery.
