Choosing the Right Breast Implant

Choosing the Right Breast Implant

Overview

A breast augmentation or mammoplasty is the procedure in which breast size is increased with the use of breast implants. The process begins with a consultation with Dr. Rosenberg, because the right choice of implants for your body can be a tricky one. The implants should enhance the shape and size of the breasts in volume and aesthetic appeal as well, hence the expertise of the surgeon and choice of implants are the two most important factors that you should consider before undergoing the procedure.

The Right Consultation

During the consultation, you’ll discuss the aesthetic goals that you are trying to achieve with a breast augmentation. That conversation is essential in helping Dr. Rosenberg properly advise you on the method, type, and placement of implants that will suit best to your body and help you reach those aesthetic goals. There are many types of implants but the two main types are saline implants and silicone implants. It is important that you look for an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Rosenberg who is experienced with all types of implants and techniques and is able to provide you with the optimal procedure.

Choice of Implant Size

Every individual is unique and the most important consideration when choosing the size of your implant is your body’s anatomy. Women have the tendency to relate implants with cup size of bras, but the cup size can vary with the variation of brands. The implant size you select should be in proportion to your body, hip and shoulder width, your weight, height and the current size of your breasts.

The size of the implants depend on the quantity of gel or fluid in the implants. They can be as little as 125cc and they can be as large as 400cc or greater. Small implants are often used for correcting asymmetry, while larger implants are used if the patient desires a fuller bust line.

Dr. Rosenberg of Maryland suggests that you see different implant profiles and sizes. And you should try out different implant sizes at his clinic before finalizing your choice of implant for your breast augmentation procedure.
