If you are one of the many women who are unsatisfied with the appearance of their chest, take control of your figure with breast augmentation. This straightforward form of plastic surgery can help you achieve the curves you have always wanted. When you decide you are interested in this procedure, there are many decisions to make. Having a consultation with an expert is the best way to know what is right for you. In the meantime, give some thought to the following choices.
Silicone or Saline Implants for Breast Augmentation
One of the biggest decisions you have to make is what type of implants you would like. The two main options are silicone and saline, and each of these choices has unique pros and cons. If you are between the ages of 18 and 22, the only option available in saline. Once you reach 22, silicone implants are available.
Silicone implants have a silicone shell that is filled with silicone gel. For many women, these implants look and feel more natural. They are great for achieving impressive cleavage. On the downside, if one is to get punctured and begin to leak, you may not notice. Your body cannot naturally expel the silicone gel, making it important to have your implants regularly examined to ensure they are intact.
Saline implants, on the other hand, are filled with a sterile solution. If one were to be punctured, it immediately deflates and your body will naturally deal with the contents. This is considered to be a somewhat safer option, as a result. It can be inconvenient for women to hide their deflated implant while waiting to have the problem solved, however. While they may not feel quite as natural as silicone implants, you can still achieve a good deal of cleavage with saline implants.
Size Choices for Breast Augmentation
Another big decision you will need to make is how large you would like your implants to be. Your aesthetic desires are very important, but they are not the only factor. Your frame, as well as the amount of natural breast tissue you possess, will both need to be considered. During the consultation, you will be able to try on different bras to help you get a good idea of what your options are. Keep in mind, if your implants are much larger than your natural chest, it may result in back pain until your muscles adapt to the new weight.
