Four Things to Consider Before Breast Augmentation

Women decide to undergo breast augmentation surgery for a number of reasons, including unhappiness with their breast size, weight fluctuations, and pregnancy. However, undergoing any type of surgery is a big decision. Before deciding to undergo a breast augmentation, take these four topics into consideration.

Type of Implant

One thing to take into consideration is which type of implant you would like. Silicone and saline implants are both safe options on the market today. Silicone implants are filled with a silicone gel and feel closest to the feel of natural breasts. Saline implants are filled with a sterile saline solution and are generally cheaper in price than silicone implants. A consultation with Dr. Hall will help to determine which type of implant is best for you.

Incision Placement

Today there are options to make breast implant incisions inconspicuous and hidden. There is a selection of incision approaches used, though the most popular include under the breast fold (inframammary), around the areola (peri-areolar), and under the armpit (under the armpit).

Implant Size

Another important decision includes which size of implants you desire. Most patients want natural-looking results, and do not want to choose implants that are too large for their frame. During your consultation, Dr. Hall will take into account your individual body frame and shape to help choose which size implants are the most appropriate.

Plastic Surgeon

The most important decision you will make before undergoing any type of cosmetic surgery is choosing which plastic surgeon is right for you. Be sure to choose an ASPS board-certified plastic surgeon. It is also important to see before and after photos of the surgeon’s work, as well as read reviews from previous patients. It is imperative that you choose a board-certified surgeon that you are comfortable with to perform your breast augmentation surgery.
