During a breast augmentation procedure, breast implants are used to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. It is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the United States. If you are considering breast augmentation with breast implants, you probably have a lot of questions.
Dr. Wright Jones and Dr. Sabine Lovell of Muse Plastic Surgery are experienced plastic surgeons. Here, they answer the questions you’ve always wanted to ask about breast implants.
Is Bigger Better?
Breast implants come in a variety of sizes. If you are getting breast implants, you get to choose the size that you think will best suit your body and your aesthetic goals. While one of the goals of a breast augmentation procedure is to improve the size of the breasts, it doesn’t necessarily mean that bigger is better. The best breast implant size is the size that makes the patient comfortable. A patient often chooses implants that look natural with their physique.
Will I Have Scars?
A common concern before any surgical procedure is scarring. At Muse Plastic Surgery patients have the choice of four surgical techniques that determine the location of the scars. Keep in mind that certain breast implants necessitate certain incision placements, which may restrict your choice.
While all breast augmentation procedures will result in scars, Dr. Jones and Dr. Lovell use their experience and training to minimize scarring. Over time, scars will fade and become less noticeable.
Will My Breast Implants Look and Feel Real?
Most women are concerned with their breasts appearing and feeling natural. Whether or not your breast implants look and feel real will depend on the breast implants that you select. Silicone gel implants are the type of implants that most closely resemble the texture and feel of natural breasts.
The shape of the implants can also make them appear more like natural breasts. Teardrop shaped implants most closely resemble real breasts.
Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Implants?
The only way to know if you are a good candidate for breast implants is by talking to a plastic surgeon. A breast augmentation procedure is best for patients who want to increase their breast size. In general, a good candidate is a healthy, non-smoker with realistic expectations for the procedure.
