Breast Implants: Are They For Me?

Breast Augmentation | Dallas, TXBreast implants and breast augmentation are popular treatments in today’s world. We show more skin than in the good old days, and we have social media to give us reason to look at and analyze every part of our bodies. We don’t think that people should strive for perfection (there’s no such thing), but we do understand the self-consciousness that is due to breasts that are unsatisfactory. And though new breasts won’t solve those self-esteem issues, they may help you feel better when you’re in a swimsuit or trying on clothes.

Whether you feel that your breasts are too small for your body type, or you have one breast that is larger than the other, we can help. Keep reading to learn more about breast augmentation and implants.

Type of Implants

There are two types of implants: saline and silicone. There are pros and cons to each. Saline, for example, can be naturally absorbed by the body in case the implant ruptures. The incision for saline implants is also smaller, since the implant is filled after it has been placed in the breast. Silicone, on the other hand, will need to be surgically removed if the implant ruptures. Silicone is sometimes preferred, as some people believe it feels more like natural breast tissue.

Where to Place Your Incision

We can help you decide the best place for your incision, to minimize the appearance and noticeability of it. Did you know that you can have an incision placed in the armpit, at the base of the nipple, or in the crease underneath the breast?

Where to Place Your Implants

We can place your implants beneath or on top of the chest muscle. Implants beneath the muscle have a lower risk of capsular contracture, where scar tissue forms around the implant and leads to a tightening sensation.

The other option is to place the implant under the breast tissue, but on top of the chest muscle. This generally makes for an easier recovery after surgery, though it can also pose issues during mammograms.
