Details about Breast Augmentation
It is important to choose the correct implant to achieve the best possible result in breast augmentation surgery. There are many implants on the market and the way to choose the correct one is to systematically look at the goals you have for your breast augmentation.
Type of Implant
There are saline implants and silicone gel implants. Each can be used with great success, but some surgeons prefer certain implants for certain situations. Saline is less commonly used today as the silicone gel implants feel more natural and look more natural.
Shape of Implant
The shape can vary, too. Some surgeons like shaped implants, where as the vast majority of surgeons prefer round implants. The round implants have less of an issue when they move around in the pocket and do not result in problems with tilting or flipping back to front. The shaped implants can have significant issues over time.
There are some patients who prefer less obvious augmentation and might opt for a lower profile breast implant. And some patients want to have more obvious volume changes in their breasts and therefore, choose the high profile implants. These are all factors that you can discuss with plastic surgeon, Dr. Jay Calvert. Expertise in breast implant surgery is one of the many areas of plastic surgery where Dr. Calvert excels.
