Breast augmentation continues to be one of the most popular cosmetic procedures out there. It is a straightforward way to take charge of your curves and get the silhouette you have always wanted. Once you have decided that this is the right procedure for you, there are many other decisions that will need to be made.
Types of Breast Augmentation
Most people think of implants when they think of breast augmentation. This is certainly a popular and great option for many people. Fat transfer is another option that is available to some women, depending on their body type and their desires.
Silicone Breast Implants
Silicone implants are very popular because they can give you a lot of projection and cleavage. They are made from a silicone shell that is filled with a silicone gel. These implants have less of a chance of rippling or wrinkling than saline ones.
Saline Breast Implants
Saline implants still have a silicone shell, but this shell is filled with a sterile solution. The advantage here is that if one were to leak, your body can naturally absorb the saline. For this reason, these implants are available to anyone aged 18 or older.
In order to be a candidate for this option, you must have excess fat in another area of the body for extraction. Popular choices are the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks. The fat is removed via liposuction and then strategically injected into the bust. While the results are typically not as dramatic, they look and feel very natural.
Other Considerations for Breast Augmentation
There are other things that will need to be discussed at your consultation, including:
- The shape of the implants
- Incision sites
- Smooth or textured implant shells
- The possibility of a combination procedure
