What are Breast Implants?
Breast implants are FDA-approved medical devices used to change the size, shape, and feel of your breast. The two main types are saline-filled and gel or silicone-filled plus they come in various sizes, shapes, textures, and firmness. Other sub-types are structured saline, round, textured, smooth, and gummy bear implants. They usually come prefilled, except for saline implants which can be filled and adjusted during your Houston breast implants surgery to achieve the desired results.
Breast Augmentation Techniques
Although all types of implants are designed to give a natural look, the breast implant surgery technique or incision type used can optimize the outcome. Your plastic surgeon may choose to insert the device behind the breasts or behind the chest. The surgical cut may be placed around the nipple, at the crease underneath the breast, within the armpit, or above the belly button. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the incision placement depends on the type of implant, level of breast enlargement desired, your breast characteristics, and your surgeon’s recommendations.
Choosing the Right Plastic Surgeon Can Make a Difference
You can step out in confidence after your breast augmentation surgery. However, choosing the right cosmetic surgeon can make all the difference in how your new breasts look and feel. You should look for a qualified plastic surgeon who has experience performing breast augmentation using the desired incision technique. Houston breast implants services at The Texas Center for Breast and Body in Houston, TX, are provided by a board-certified plastic surgeon who is highly skilled and experienced in performing various surgical techniques.
What Results Can I Expect?
