Breast Enhancement Surgery with Implants

Oct 18, 2007
Every day, you make decisions that affect the way you live. Some choices depend on the moment, like the clothing, hairstyle and perfume you'll wear today. Other decisions are deeply significant, because they affect how you feel about yourself as a woman, and how others perceive you.

One decision more and more women are making everyday is to have breast augmentation (a procedure to enhance the size of your breasts by using breast implants.) Breast implants are indicated for females for breast augmentation surgery where the patient is at least 18 years of age, and for reconstruction of the female breast. By inserting breast implants, plastic surgeons are able to increase a woman's bust line by one or more bra cup sizes. Advances in breast implant technology and surgical technique are making breast augmentation a popular option among women of all ages desiring a change in the way they look. The decision to undergo breast augmentation may result in a more flattering, better proportioned figure, more clothing options, and may enhance your confidence and self-esteem.

Breast augmentation offers a unique opportunity to scientifically "customize" the shape of the breast rather than just bra size. You may want to wear an outfit that reveals more cleavage, change your wardrobe style, or simply create the proper balance between your breasts and hips.

Please consult your plastic surgeon if there is anything you don't understand about the procedure.

Many women have made the choice to create the shape they have always dreamed of through breast augmentation. Confident, sensual and beautiful-simply more of what you already are.

Breast implants come in a variety of shapes, surface textures, and sizes. Depending on the desired shape you wish to achieve, you and your plastic surgeon may choose a round or shaped breast implant shape. Generally, the larger you want your cup size, the larger the breast implant the plastic surgeon will consider (measured in cubic centimeters, or cc's).

Your plastic surgeon will also evaluate your existing tissue to determine if you have enough to cover the breast implant. If you desire a breast implant size too large for your tissue, the plastic surgeon may warn you that breast implant edges may be apparent or visible post-operatively.

Virtually all breast implants are made of a round or shaped silicone elastomer (rubber) shell, and are now commonly filled with a saline solution (salt water). Saline solution is used to fill the implant because it is similar to the fluids in your body, and will be absorbed by your body should the implant leak or break.

Your plastic surgeon can provide you with information that fully explains the risks and complications associated with breast implants and the surgery itself. It is recommended that you read all of the information provided before scheduling surgery, so that you have plenty of time to ask questions and evaluate all of your options.
