There are a number of popular cosmetic procedures. However, breast augmentation is by far one of the most popular. If you are considering this procedure, it’s likely that you have some questions. The main aspects to consider regarding this procedure are: what type of implants you should choose, how the implants should be placed, and whether or not you should consider fat transfer. Our professionals can discuss all of these points with you at your consultation, but we have covered a few of the basics below.
What Is Breast Augmentation?
There is often a little bit of confusion between breast augmentation and breast lift. Within an augmentation procedure, the goal is to increase the size and shape of the breasts. In most cases, this goal is reached using a traditional implant. Usually, this procedure is designed to enhance the shape of the breasts, to create balance with the rest of the body, and to add volume. A breast lift, on the other hand, only lifts the breasts without adding volume. The procedures can be performed at the same time if desired.
What Types of Implants Are Available?
Implants are usually made of a silicone shell. The shell can be filled with saline, which is saltwater, or a silicone gel. At The Bougainvillea Clinique, we offer saline, silicone, and fat transfer. You will need to determine which implant you’re going to use based on your aesthetic goals and personal preferences. Contact us for a more in-depth overview of these implants and which may be right for you.
Am I a Good Candidate?
A good candidate is someone who doesn’t smoke, someone who is not pregnant or breastfeeding, and someone who has a healthy and stable weight. You should have realistic expectations. If you are considering breast augmentation because you want to please someone else or because you are being pressured to by someone else, you may not be the ideal candidate for this procedure. If you think that breast augmentation is going to drastically change your life, you may not have realistic expectations.
