Tips For Getting The Best Results From A Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentations are one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgeries. In many instances, the surgery's results are those desired by the patient. However, there are some who are not pleased with the results. If you are considering a breast augmentation, here are some tips to help ensure you get the desired results.

Schedule a 3D Imaging Consultation

In the past, cosmetic surgeons relied on various tools, such as a neoprene sack, to give patients an ideal of what to expect from the surgical procedure. Unfortunately, those tools do not always provide the most accurate representation of what to expect.

Advances in cosmetic surgery though have led to the use of 3D imaging technology to get a more accurate depiction of the post-surgical results. During a 3D imaging plastic surgery consultation, a 180-degree image of your chest is taken. The image allows the surgeon to get precise measurements and details about your anatomy that could impact the results.

Your plastic surgeon can then use software to manipulate the image and give you a realistic depiction of what you can expect after the breast augmentation. This allows you a chance to get before and after photos that can be evaluated by you and surgeon.

The imaging also gives you a chance to see if other procedures are also conducted to give the results you want.

Know the Difference in Implants

The decision of which implant type to use is ultimately up to you. Before deciding on an implant, it is important that you know the differences between the two types available.

Saline implants are the lesser used implant in breast augmentations today. The saline can sometimes cause ripples in your breast to appear. If you have a rupture, the implant visibly shrinks over time.

By contrast, a silicone implant is more difficult in leak detection. The implant is more gel-like, which makes detection difficult. However, silicone implants tend to be more realistic.

There is a new procedure that you and your cosmetic surgeon should discuss. An autologous fat transfer involves moving fat that is in other areas of your body into your breasts. In order to qualify for this, you need enough fat from other areas. If you qualify, it can be worth it since it involves using your own fat.

There are many other ways that you can get the best results from your breast augmentation. Talk openly with your cosmetic surgeon about your concerns before making a final decision on surgery. Contact a company like Plastic Surgery Innovation PC for more information.
