Breast augmentations have been one of the most popular breast enhancement procedures for years, accounting for a large portion of cosmetic procedures. Thanks to this popularity, there have been numerous advancements in the breast augmentation procedure. Now, patients have more options than ever regarding their breast augmentation treatment. Here are some of the options you have to consider while planning your breast augmentation.
Breast Implant Options
Breast augmentations use breast implants to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. You have many options when it comes to your implants, including the shape, material and size. The shape and size of the implants will directly correlate to your desired breast shape and size. The implant material is the biggest choice when it comes to breast augmentation. The two most popular breast implant materials are saline and silicone. Saline implants are inserted into the breasts empty, then filled with a salt-water solution. Silicone implants, such as MemoryGel® and Natrelle® implants, are made up of a firmer, gelatin-like material. These implants typically feel more like natural breast tissue than saline implants, but cannot be inserted using as many techniques as saline implants.
Breast Augmentation Technique
The techniques used for your breast augmentation will determine the incision location. Saline implants are inserted empty, so they can be inserted with one of several different techniques that may help to minimize scarring. In addition to traditional breast implant techniques, Dr. Leverett specializes in the dual plane technique. This minimizes scarring and other complications that are often associated with breast augmentations while also producing a subtle lift.
