What should I consider when choosing Breast Implants?
You will have many options to choose from when selecting your breast implants. Dr. Austin has extensive skill and experience with breast implants and will explain all of your options clearly to help you make the most appropriate selection for your unique body and lifestyle. We provide several types of breast implants that you may choose from, and you can make your selection taking into account the following variables:
- Materials: Saline or Silicone
Dr. Austin will explain the pros and cons of saline and silicone implants, and recommend the most appropriate type for your body and lifestyle.
You may choose between a high, medium, or low projection profile that determines the distance or projection of your new breasts, or how far they protrude from your chest.
You will have the option to choose between round or teardrop-shaped implants, depending on which type most suits your figure.
Dr. Austin may decide to place the implant either on top of or underneath the pectoral muscle, depending on your particular figure and aesthetic goals.
What can I expect from the Breast Implant procedure?
Breast augmentation surgery with the insertion of breast implants requires general anesthesia and tiny incisions that may be located beneath the breast, around the areola, or under the arm. The implant may be positioned either under the pectoral muscle or directly behind the fatty breast tissue. Scarring is minimal, and most scars fade over time. You will need someone to drive you home after surgery, and the recovery period after this procedure is about four weeks.
Is it safe to breastfeed with Breast Implants?
Yes. Breast implants do not generally interfere with breastfeeding, and most women have no trouble breastfeeding with breast implants.
Will Breast Implants reduce sagging in the breasts?
Breast implants alone do not typically lift sagging breasts, although in some cases, the added volume may make breasts appear slightly higher on the chest. For optimal correction of breast sagging, a breast lift procedure combined with your breast implants would be recommended.
How long do Breast Implants last?
Breast implants may last 10 to 20 years before requiring replacement, although there are cases that may require implant exchange before that time. Dr. Austin and our staff of cosmetic specialists will help you to identify any signs of problems or complications that may require the removal or exchange of your implants.
What if I change my mind after Breast Implants?
Breast implants may be easily removed or replaced if you change your mind after your procedure, and you are free to try different size or shape implants for a new look.
