Part of the breast augmentation process is choosing the right breast implant for one’s needs. This includes the type of implant, such as saline or silicone, as well as the size and shape of the implant. Dr. Kenrick A. Spence of Hillcrest Plastic Surgery in Orlando, FL encourages patients to ask him questions about choosing the right implant to get the most natural-looking and effective solution for one’s needs.
What should l consider when choosing my breast implant size and shape?
Working with an experienced plastic surgeon is the best way to find out the right implant size for you. Below are a few of the factors patients need to consider when choosing their new implants to improve the volume, shape, and size of the breasts:
- Consider lifestyle factors. Women who are in high-intensity sports or incredibly active will want to choose a smaller breast implant when compared to a woman who is focused on clothing fitting better on their feminine figure.
- Shape and positioning of the implant. The way the implant is placed within the muscle and breast tissue of the chest may also play a role in the size and shape of the implant itself. Women who need to restore lost volume to the chest may need to choose a larger implant than someone who wants smaller, perkier breasts sitting higher on the chest.
- Bring a friend. Having a second opinion from someone you trust is another way to feel confident in your breast implant size selection.
- Consider the recommendations of the doctor. Experienced plastic surgeons have placed hundreds if not thousands of breast implants and may be able to offer words of advice when selecting the breast implant for your body. If you have questions, Dr. Kenrick A. Spence can answer them and help narrow your decision.
