Should I Get Breast Implants?

If you struggle with your confidence due to your breast size, getting breast implants in Philadelphia can help you get it back. As women age and have children, breasts can sag and lose their volume. At the Center for SmartLipo and Plastic Surgery, Dr. Richard Goldfarb can use breast implants to help you achieve your goals and desires.breast implants in philadelphia

Are There Multiple Types of Breast Implants?

At the Center for SmartLipo, we deal with two types of breast implants. Both extremely popular types, silicone and saline are widely used for breast augmentation. With these, you can rarely tell the difference between the two by the look.

Saline implants do have a slight advantage. For saline, the breast implants aren’t filled with the solution until they’re already in place. This means a far smaller incision can be used and then filled with a saline solution when they’re already in the body. For silicone gel implants, a larger incision is used because they’re filled before they’re implanted in the body.

Implant Placement and Incisions

Breast implants can be placed in multiple different positions, depending on the desired look you’re going for. There are also four different incision sites Dr. Goldfarb can use to place the breast implant. Both advantages and disadvantages come with all incision sites, but our experienced surgeons can help you determine which one is right for you.

Placement is considered over or under. This mainly focuses on whether the implants go over or under the pectoral muscles and other tissues. They can go above all muscle and tissue, below all muscle and tissue, or under the pectoral muscle and just the breast tissue. Your doctor can explain the differences between all of these and compare them to the goals you have for your look after breast implants.

What About Natural Breast Augmentation?

Natural breast augmentation uses fat from other places on your body to increase the size of your breasts. While this can be an ideal option for many women, it can only do so much. Natural augmentation can help your breasts look fuller, but if you want to increase by a cup size or more, breast implants are the best options. If you’d like, fat transfer can be used in addition to breast implants to help implants look more natural.

Are Breast Implants Right for Me?

Dr. Goldfarb will do an exam to make sure that you’re medically ready for breast implants. He’ll also talk to you about your goals and what you want the final product to look like. The type, size, and placement of the implants will also determine how much your implants will cost. This price will also factor into if breast implants are the right choice for you.

Breast augmentation surgery also does require some recovery time where you’ll have to be off of work. However, that time is only about ten days. You’ll get the self-confidence benefits immediately, though. The results are seen the instant that you look in the mirror after surgery.
