Breast augmentation can help women improve their self-confidence, wear clothes they always wanted to wear, and restore their youthful figures. But, opting for breast augmentation isn’t just one major decision. It’s a series of big decisions. While it’s one of the most common cosmetic procedures performed in the U.S., it’s a complex surgery that now offers an array of options to give every woman personalized results. Important decisions that will shape the outcome of your breast augmentation include types of implants and sizes, incision placement and more. Doing research can help you understand all of your options, but the best way to truly know how each choice can affect your desired results is to discuss everything with an experienced surgeon who you can trust.
Knowing Your Options
Your body type and your personal preferences help form your idea of attractive breasts. By utilizing all of the available options, your surgeon can tailor your breast augmentation to give you the results you want. Decisions you will need to make include whether you want silicone, saline, or the popular new gummy bear implants; the size and shape of your breast implant; the placement of the implant and where you want the incision (which will leave a small scar). Choosing the plastic surgeon who will perform your procedure is the most important decision you can make. Your plastic surgeon should be board certified and should be highly experienced in performing breast augmentation procedures. Board certification is important because it ensures that the surgeon is specifically trained in plastic surgery procedures like breast augmentation. A surgeon who performs breast surgeries on a regular basis will also be the best one to understand the result you want and how to achieve that result. Breast augmentation is a big step on your journey to a new you. That’s why it is vital to also choose a doctor who listens to you, answers all of your questions and who makes sure to understand your specific situation.
