3 Things to Know Before Breast Augmentation

About Breast Augmentation

From New York all the way to Pasadena, breast augmentation surgery has given a much desired boost to a woman's figure and self-confidence. In fact, it is the top cosmetic surgery performed in America. Although it’s extremely common, it’s also extremely valuable to know these three important facts.

3 Things About Breast Augmentation

  1. Not All Breast Implants Are the Same: Nope, they really aren’t. They aren’t the same in shape, size, material, and textures. When deciding which breast implant to choose, it’s important to weigh their features and determine what’s best for your body. For instance each come with their own pros and cons. Silicone implants are thought to have a more natural breast appearance, while requiring larger incisions and cost more. Saline implants are less expensive, can require smaller incisions, but are thought to ripple every so often.
  2. Implants Do Not Cause Cancer: Health concerns with any surgery are only normal, but after being carefully studied, breast implants have not been found to cause cancer.
  3. Bigger is Not Always Better:Often in the quest to achieve fuller, larger breasts, women believe that bigger is always better, but when it comes to implants this is not the case. In terms of breast implant size, reviewing these factors should come into play:

Body frame

Current breast tissue

Chest width

Lifestyle & activity level

Don’t be overwhelmed. What’s most important is to determine what size best suits each individual during a consultation, sizing sessions and evaluations with your surgeon help to produce the best results.
