If your breasts never developed, if they shrank as a result of weight loss or pregnancy, if they do not have an attractive shape, or if they are uneven in size or different in shape, breast augmentation can help. But, this type of surgery is a big decision and you probably have many questions. Your first step when considering breast surgery is to research all your options, such as types of implants and sizes, incision placement and more — so that you achieve your desired outcome. There is a wealth of information available to educate you on these choices, but your best source of information will be from an experienced surgeon who is trustworthy and a good listener.
Choices You’ll Need to Make
Because your cosmetic goals are specific to your body and your idea of what attractive breasts look like, your breast augmentation procedure can be customized to give you the results you desire. Some of the decisions you will need to make to ensure you get the best breast augmentation for you 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). However, your most important decision will be choosing which plastic surgeon will perform your procedure. Because breast augmentation is an important surgery, you should only choose a board certified plastic surgeon who performs breast augmentation surgery on a regular basis. Working with a board-certified surgeon ensures your surgeon is specifically trained and certified in plastic surgery procedures like breast augmentation. You also need a doctor who will take the time to listen to you and understand your specific situation. Being at ease with your surgeon will ensure that you can express your wishes clearly and be confident that your doctor understands what you want.
