One of the most performed cosmetic procedures in the U.S., breast augmentation has developed to offer a variety of options to help women improve confidence, wear the clothes they love, and restore their youthful figures. But all those options also bring many questions — questions that are important for this type of surgery. A major life decision, breast surgery options include types of implants and sizes, incision placement and more. All of the choices you make will be vital in helping you achieve your desired outcome. Most likely, you have researched these options on your own. The next step in getting the best information is talking to an experienced surgeon who you can trust.
Knowing Your Options for Breast Augmentation
Your cosmetic goals are personal and your breast augmentation procedure can be personalized to give you the results you want. Based on your body and your idea of what makes breasts attractive, you’ll be able to select options that will ensure you get the best breast augmentation for you. 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). Your biggest decision, though, is selecting the plastic surgeon who will perform your procedure. Choosing a board certified plastic surgeon who performs breast augmentation surgery on a regular basis is critical because breast augmentation is an important surgery. Board-certification means that your surgeon is specifically trained and certified in plastic surgery procedures like breast augmentation. Your surgeon should also make you feel comfortable enough to discuss your options openly, ask questions, and explain your goals and your desired outcome.
