If you are considering a breast augmentation procedure, there are several important things to keep in mind prior to the surgery. Our doctor will go through all of these different aspects, but it will ultimately come down to what you want and what your final goals are for your body.
There are various locations to consider for your breast augmentation procedure. Our plastic surgeon in New Orleans will give you some options and recommendations based on the size of the implant and your desired look, but you’ll want to keep the basic options in mind.
Generally speaking, going in under the breast is the most straightforward method. Depending on the size of the implant, there will probably be some scarring, although as long as you keep it out of the sun and follow recommended care suggestions made by our doctor, you can keep any scaring to a minimum. There are other placement options available as well.
Breast Implant Materials
There are also different material options available when considering breast enhancement surgery.
The first and most popular option is the saline implant. Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water, and structured saline breast implants give a bit more structure to the enhancement. Structured saline breast implants give a natural feel and look. The FDA approves saline breast implants for individuals 18 years of age and older
Silicone breast implants are another breast implant material, although these implants are made from a silicone gel. Gel typically feels more natural than the saline option, although you’ll likely have to visit the doctor more frequently for check-ups following such a procedure.
