What Options are Available for Breast Augmentation?
December 14, 2010
When considering breast augmentation, you have several decisions to make. Experienced New York plastic surgeon Dr. Scott Newman will help you determine what options are best suited for your body, but having a general idea of your options before your initial consultation can help you know what to expect during your visit.
Breast Augmentation Options
One of the most important decisions is what size you would like your breasts, and therefore your breast implants, to be. Dr. Newman will assess your frame during your initial consultation to help you determine an appropriate size, but brining pictures of breasts you find attractive will give him a better idea of what you hope to achieve.
You will need to decide what type of implant you are interested in. Implants can be filled with either saline or silicone gel. There are advantages and disadvantages to both types of implants. Dr. Newman will discuss this with you during your initial consultation.
You also have options when it comes to the placement of incisions for your breast augmentation. The three incision options offered by Dr. Newman are underneath your breast, around your areola, or through your armpit. Each of these options enjoys some advantages, and the decision will ultimately rely on where you want your implants placed, and where you want the scars from your surgery to be.
The placement of your implants will determine your final aesthetic results. It will also determine the amount of time surgery and recovery will take. Dr. Newman prefers to insert implants submuscularly, but will take your concerns and the dimensions of your body into account when helping you decide what option is best for you.
