When it comes to breast augmentation, there are a few factors that you will need to take into consideration before making your decision. One of the most important is choosing the right size and type of implant for you. There are a variety of implants available on the market, each with its own set of benefits and drawbacks.
In this blog post, we will discuss the different types of breast implants and help you decide which one is right for you!
Types of Breast Implants
The most common types of breast implants are saline and silicone. Saline implants are filled with sterile saltwater, while silicone implants are filled with a gel. Both types of implants have a silicone outer shell.
Saline implants are typically less expensive than silicone implants, but they can also cause more rippling and wrinkles in the breast. Silicone implants are more expensive, but they tend to look and feel more natural.
Safe breast augmentation requires an experienced surgeon. In an interview about cosmetic procedures, the breast augmentation surgeon, Dr. Pratt opines that implants make the women feel more confident in their appearance. Further he suggested on how to choose the right size and type of implant for your body and your goals. So, while looking for the right breast augmentation surgeon, don’t forget to check out the surgeon’s past breast augmentation patients to get an idea of his or her work!
Cost is also an important factor to consider when choosing breast implants. Saline implants typically cost less than silicone implants, but the overall cost of your breast augmentation will also depend on the type of anesthesia used, the facility where your surgery is performed, and other factors.
Right Age for Breast Implants?
There is no right or wrong age to get breast implants. However, it is important to note that breast implants are not considered permanent devices. You may need to replace your implants every ten years or so as they age and change shape. Additionally, breast implants may interfere with breast cancer detection, so it is important to discuss your breast augmentation with your doctor and have regular breast cancer screenings.
Tips Before Visiting Surgeon
If you are considering breast implants, we recommend that you:
- Schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon.
- Bring photos of the breast size and shape you would like to achieve.
- Be prepared to discuss your medical history, including any previous surgeries.
- Understand the risks and benefits of breast implants.
- Be sure to ask any questions you may have about breast implants!
Keep in mind that breast implants are not permanent, and you may need to have them replaced at some point down the road. Choose a breast augmentation surgeon that you feel comfortable with and who you trust to give you the results you want.
