Decisions, Decisions: How to Choose the Right Implant
Having a flat chest may have been cool in the sixth grade, but as a woman, it’s not exactly desirable. If you are interested in getting a breast augmentation done to enhance your body, you have several different decisions to make. From the type of implant you are going to get to the location of the incision, this article will discuss the different options that you have. Read on to learn more.
Types of Implants
It used to be that there was only one real type of FDA approved implant: saline. However, with advancements in medical technology, there are now three available options for you to choose from: saline, silicone, and gummy bear implants.
- Saline: This type of implant is composed of a salt water solution. Notorious for giving women more solid looking breasts, if you are an athlete, this type of implant may be the best for you.
- Silicone: Made up of a gel-like, silicone material, silicone implants are not only safe but they give patients a more realistic look and feel.
- Gummy Bear Implants: As the newest type of implant available, gummy bear implants are a type of silicone implant that will give you a more natural look and feel. For instance, unlike saline and traditional silicone implants, gummy bear implants are teardrop shaped which means that they will look more realistic.
When it comes to the incision location for your breast implants, there are two main options: under the armpit and the breasts. Depending on your skin type, the size of implant you are getting, the type of implant you are getting, and other additional factors, your surgeon at Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery will help you decide which option is best for you.
Making the decision to get breast implants will not only help transform your appearance but your self-esteem as well. Once you have made the decision, however, you still need to decide what types of implants to get and what types of incisions to make.
