It is important for every woman to feel beautiful and to embrace her body. If you have always dreamed of a curvier figure, consider breast augmentation. This straightforward cosmetic surgery is one of the most popular out there. It is a great way to bring balance to your body, enhance your silhouette, and boost your self-confidence!
Options for Breast Augmentation
There are many options available now for breast augmentation. This is great because it allows Dr. Jeffrey Hartog to get you as close to your ideal body as possible. While many women choose to go with implants, you also have the option of a fat transfer in many cases. This involves using liposuction to remove fat from a problem area such as the abdomen or hips, and then injecting it into the bust. If you decide you want to go with implants, you will need to make several decisions.
Type of Implant
There are three main types of implants available for breast augmentation. Silicone implants have been around for a long time. They can give you a great deal of volume and cleavage. One potential issue is that if they are punctured it is hard to detect the leak on your own. Saline implants are filled with a sterile solution. If one were to be punctured, the implant would deflate and your body could naturally absorb the solution. A newer option is the Gummy Bear Implant. This is made of a more cohesive type of silicone and holds its shape better.
Shape of Implant
Round implants have been popular for many years. Recently, women have begun choosing teardrop shaped implants because they feel they look more natural. A teardrop shaped implant typically has a textured shell. This is so they do not rotate, something that happens occasionally with round implants. Both types of implants can also have different projections. This impacts how they appear from the side.
Textured or Smooth
As stated above, there are definite advantages to having a textured implant. That being said, if you have little breast tissue, you may need to go with a round implant. They are less likely to experience rippling. Textured implants are less prone to capsular contracture, a condition where a scar forms around the implant.
