Considerations Before Surgery
There are several decisions that need to made before having breast augmentation surgery including;
- Size of Implant
- Type of Implant
- Placement of Implant
- Surface of Implant
- Location of Incision
Size of Breast Implant
One of the first decisions you will need to make before you meet with any doctor is the breast size and overall look that you are wanting to achieve. Dr. Doohi Lee use special sizers to help you visualize different implant shapes and sizes. They can be placed under your clothing to help you see how you would look with different shapes and sizes. This first decision is so important to the outcome of your surgery, that Dr. Lee will use his trained aesthetic eye to help you to choose the implant that best fits your body shape.
Type of Breast Implant
There are primarily two types of breast implants; saline, and silicone. Saline implants are inserted while they’re deflated, then filled after they are placed in the body. Silicone implants are pre-filled with a gel-like material that feels and moves more like your natural breasts. Both types of implants come in a variety of sizes and shapes and should last more than 10 years.
Implants can be placed in front of or behind your chest muscles. The best placement location depends on your ultimate appearance goals and the density of your breast tissue. During your consultation, the doctor will explain which method is best for your body.
Saline and silicone implants both have an outer silicone shell. This shell can have a smooth or textured surface. Smooth implants move slightly, mimicking natural breasts, while textured implants promote tissue growth that holds them in place.
Location of Incision
The incision for breast augmentation is typically made in one of three places — the fold under your breast, around the nipple or in your armpit. A less common method for insertion is through your belly-button- transumbilical(TUBA). The TUBA method is used if you are concerned with hiding the incision marks. Dr. Lee is an expert in all of these breast augmentation methods.
