Many women struggle with achieving their ideal silhouette. Breasts can have a profound effect in this regard. If you feel like your breasts are not how you would like them to be or even a source of insecurity for you, you should consider Breast Augmentation.
Perhaps you have lost breast mass due to aging, weight loss, or pregnancy, or maybe you never had the breasts you always wanted. There are a number of outcomes you can achieve with breast augmentation, from enlarging your breasts and restoring mass to changing their shape.
Types of Implants
This cosmetic procedure features various implant choices made of different materials. During the procedure, these flexible, soft implants get inserted behind the breast tissue to enlarge the appearance of your breasts and enhance your body symmetry. Each type of implant has benefits and drawbacks. A doctor can help you choose the implants that feel right for your body.
Silicone implants have been a popular choice among women for decades. The texture and feeling of silicone is very similar to natural breasts. Some patients opt for this type of implant when they want more natural-looking (and feeling) results.
Saline implants consist of a silicone shell filled with sterilized salt water. During breast augmentation surgery, your doctor will insert the implants while they’re empty and fill them with saline once in place to ensure they are proportionate to your figure.
Gummy Bear Implants
As the name suggests, gummy bear implants are relatively rigid in shape. They are made of a silicone shell and gel filling that feels like human fat. Gummy bear implants look firmer and feel harder under your skin than other materials, and many patients find this implant type looks and feels very much like natural breast tissue.
Breast augmentation is individualized for every patient. You choose the size and shape of the implants that work best for you and your body. Some patients want to even out the size of their breasts due to asymmetry. Others wish to simply enlarge their breasts. Find a good team of plastic surgeons that can guide you to the option that best suits your aesthetic preferences.
There are many different factors in implant sizing. Your anatomy dictates where the implant is placed in your breast. Similarly, the size and shape of your current breasts have an impact on the sizing.
When you meet with your surgeon, they will go over the necessary information for implant sizing. You will have the chance to view sample sizes of actual implants to help you determine what size is best for your goals.
