Getting breast implants is a very personal decision. If you are considering enhancing the size and look of your breasts or want to reconstruct your breasts after surgery from cancer or trauma, here are some important things to consider.
Type of Implant - The reason you are considering breast augmentation in the first place should factor in to what type of implant you’ll want to consider. For example, if you’re seeking reconstructive surgery you might want to consider an anatomical implant placed above the muscle that can look and feel completely natural.
On the other hand, if you want rounded, fuller breasts, consider a round implant which can be either silicone or saline and is usually placed underneath the muscle. New varieties of implants come out all the time so don’t hesitate to ask what types are available at your consultation.
Understanding Proportions - When deciding what type and size of implants you want to enhance your body with, make sure you take your body frame into account. For example, petite women may choose a more conservative implant while tall or athletic women may opt for larger implants. Your Orange County plastic surgeon will discuss what’s best for your body type to ensure you are satisfied with the final results.
Activity Level - In California it isn't uncommon for plastic surgery patients to have a very active lifestyle. If you are one who is intent on being a part of the many outdoor sports or other physical activities you’ll want to know how you’re new breasts will fit into that lifestyle.
Post-surgical recovery may vary depending on how much “enhancement” you’re getting. Sadly, larger breasts can interfere in some ways with certain activities. Discuss all your hobbies and activities with us so you won’t have to miss out on your favorite things to do.
