Breast Augmentation Decisions
Key to finding a plastic surgeon who can give you the result you are looking for is the ability to use as many techniques as possible, instead of relying on a favorite method and ignoring your individual needs. There are many options available to tailor the result to your expectations. In some cases, your surgeon may recommend a breast lift in addition to the breast enlargement procedure to improve both shape and size of the breasts. The shape and placement of the breast implant can both aid in achieving the desired outcome.
For our patients in the South Bay area and Long Beach, breast enlargement uses implants filled with either silicone gel or a sterile saline solution. Our surgeons are skilled in performing this procedure using either saline or silicone gel breast implants. Your surgeon will talk with you in more detail about the benefits of each implant type so you can make an informed choice.
Another important decision is implant size and shape. Standard round implants are dome-shaped. They provide the upper breast fullness that has become popular in magazines and on television. Anatomical implants, on the other hand, are somewhat tear-shaped and provide a more natural appearance. With anatomical implants, patients can augment and enhance their breasts, and look like they never had surgery.
Placement and Incisions
The next major decision that you and your surgeon will make is where and how to insert the implants. The implant can either be inserted over or under the pectoralis (chest) muscle. The implants can be inserted through an incision underneath the breast, underneath the nipple, or in the armpit. All three incisions can place implants over or under the muscle.
Properly combining the right implant, placement, and incision can give you the result you desire. Our surgeons specialize in all types of implants, placements, and incisions. We are proud to be able to tailor each breast enhancement procedure to suit our individual patients' desires.
