reast implants and breast augmentation are popular, and we completely understand why. We show more skin now than people used to, and we have social media to allow us to show off the parts of ourselves we love.
We don’t think that striving for perfection is the goal here (because there’s no such thing), but we do understand the self-consciousness that can come from breasts that just don’t seem to suit us. And though new breasts won’t completely solve self-esteem issues, they may help you feel better when you’re in a swimsuit this summer.
Whether you feel that your breasts are too small for your body type, or you have one breast that is larger than the other, we can help. Keep reading to learn more about breast augmentation and implants.
Type of Breast Implants
There are two types of implants: saline and silicone. And obviously each type has their own pros and cons. Saline, for example, can be naturally absorbed by the body in case the implant happens to rupture. The incision for saline implants is also smaller, since the implant is filled after it has been placed in the breast. So, you will likely have a smaller scar.
Silicone, on the other hand, must be surgically removed if the implant ruptures. Silicone is sometimes preferred, as some people believe it feels and behaves more like natural breasts.
Where Should I Have My Incision?
We can help you decide the best place for your incision, to minimize the appearance of it and how noticeable it will be. You have plenty of options. You can have an incision placed in the armpit, at the base of the nipple, or in the crease underneath the breast. Whichever works best for you will depend on what you like to wear.
