Choosing your breast implants
LET US HELP YOU TO GET THE LOOK YOU HAVE ALWAYS WANTED WITH BREAST AUGMENTATION SURGERY
NYC breast augmentation with Saline or Silicone
These can be placed through any incision and are positioned either above or below the chest muscle. Their shell is created from silicone. These are filled to the desired size once placed inside their breast position. The incisions used to insert the implant tend to be smaller than those required for silicone gel. Because of this difference, only saline implants are inserted through the trans umbilical route ( navel) and typically the trans-axillary (armpit) route as well.
Saline implants tend to be priced lower than silicone, yet they can be more prone to visible rippling and rupture. In the rare event of a breach, saline fluid is harmlessly absorbed into the body and the implant will need to be replaced.
Silicone Breast Implants
After extensive research, the new generation of silicone cohesive gel implant was created and approved for public use November 2006. Today’s silicone gel implants are constructed with a form of a cohesive gel, which is gummy, soft and palpable. Unlike the liquid silicone, it won’t run or flow if the shell is breached. Cohesive silicone gel implants are available in round or shaped implants, smooth or textured, and an expansive variety of volumes.
Cohesive gel implants tend to provide a more natural feel than saline, and they move like real, natural breasts. The risk of visible rippling is lower than that of saline as well. Because these implants come pre-filled, the size of implant chosen, and a patient’s anatomy can present limitations for insertion. For instance, using the peri-areolar approach is not advisable if the areolae are too small or the implant is too large.
In the rare event of a shell rupture, the silicone gel contents are expected to stay in position. This is a benefit to safety, yet it can make any changes to the implant difficult to detect. An MRI might be required to confirm a suspected rupture.
YOUR GUIDE TO BREAST AUGMENTATION NYC
Breast augmentation in NYC appeals to a wide variety of people. After all, this popular cosmetic surgery can achieve so much. But, is breast enhancement surgery the best choice for you? Here’s a closer look at factors that qualify or disqualify a person for breast implants.
Good candidates for any cosmetic surgery are generally healthy. Factors such as chronic disease, bleeding disorders, infection or immunity issues can compromise healing. Your plastic surgeon will ask you health and lifestyle questions to ensure your safety.
Your plastic surgeon will advise you to wait for breast augmentation in NYC if you’re pregnant, breastfeeding, or planning to become pregnant soon. The incision route you choose will be a factor for breastfeeding in the future. The natural expansion of glandular tissue during pregnancy means your breast implant results may be altered if you become pregnant in the future.
Do you need a breast lift?
Many patients learn that they’ll benefit from a mastopexy plus breast implants when they visit an NYC breast augmentation surgeon. Augmentation mastopexy achieves a lifted, perkier breast shape along with volume enhancement.
Is your cosmetic surgery entirely your choice?
People who choose to alter their body independently, for their own satisfaction, are generally happier with the outcomes. No one should decide to undergo a physical alteration because of the advice or pressure of another person.
Do you understand procedure risks and limits?
Breast augmentation can achieve impressive, customized results. The surgery carries a very high patient satisfaction rate; however, there are limits and concerns to be aware of. You should feel free to ask questions about safety, potential complications, and how you and your surgeon will minimize them. Your results will depend somewhat on your existing anatomy, so the goal of improvement, not perfection, is most realistic.
Patients should be at least 18 to consider breast augmentation in NYC. The body is generally developed by that age and the breasts will have stopped growing. Saline implants may be selected for those under age 22, and silicone cohesive gel breast implants for women over 22.
Though there is no set weight or BMI required for breast augmentation, your plastic surgeon will want to ensure that your body weight is healthy before you undergo surgery. Additionally, if you plan to gain or lose significant body fat, you should know that the breasts will likely change size and shape. Because that can alter breast augmentation outcomes, you’ll be advised to achieve your ideal weight before surgery.
