You’ve made your decision to enhance your breasts. That’s the big decision, but not the last, because now you have a series of choices to make about your procedure. You know you want to go bigger, or broader, or have a better shape. But how do you know what implants will work best? First, you must consider projection and proportion. Sound’s easy—right?
Breast implant size and profile are the essential variables that will ensure your successful breast augmentation. You want your results to look natural and proportionate with the rest of your body. So, getting the implant right is critical for optimal breast augmentation results.
Going Too Small
At Dreyfuss Plastic Surgery, we often see women who went too small when choosing their implants. They come to us in Orland Park unsatisfied, wanting a revision to go bigger this time. Though we are happy to help you with your revision surgery, we always counsel our patients that it is critical to get the size right the first time around if possible. Adding another surgery increases the risk of complications like capsular contracture, pronounced scarring, or losing nipple sensation.
Chicago board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Dreyfuss will consult with you on the best implant options that fit your body type and anatomy. You will have access to the latest technologies and expertise to determine the right size, type, and projection with your implant. Remember, the implants not only have to look good but be comfortable to carry around for years.
Going Too Large
When women choose implants too large for their bodies, it can throw the whole body out of balance. Not only can the woman’s figure end up looking disproportionate, but going too large can also cause discomfort from carrying around too much weight. Pain in the neck and lower back may even result. Also, activities like exercise or housework may become painful.
The breast tissue may weaken with the added weight causing breasts to sag and droop. If the patient chooses to take the implants out at some point, the skin may have been stretched too thin to bounce back.
How To Choose Your Implants Well
As we said before, choosing your breast implants correctly is critical for a successful breast enhancement. But the most crucial decision will be who does the surgery. Board-certified plastic surgeons are extensively trained in plastic and reconstructive surgery. They also are held to the highest ethical standards in medicine. So, if you are considering breast augmentation with implants, choose well.
