GETTING THE BEST RESULTS FROM BREAST AUGMENTATION
20 June 2018
When it comes to breast augmentation, patients are typically looking to increase their breast size, but there are a few other key factors to keep in mind when choosing the right breast implants that will both achieve the desired results and highlight your natural figure.
When considering breast implants, it is important to distinguish between cup size and implant size. Bra sizes are not uniform and can vary from brand to brand and by style, whereas implant sizes are uniform and are measured in cubic centimeters of volume. Discussing the difference with your surgeon can help find the right match for you.
It’s similarly vital to know what you are looking for as a result of the surgery. Some patients seek subtle improvements while others hope for dramatic changes. Visually, patients may be looking to increase cleavage, lift sagging breasts, or alter breast position.
Another aspect to consider is your lifestyle. If you work out, play a lot of sports, or have a physically demanding job, this could affect the size of breast implants you choose. Of course, women who lead an active life can still enjoy implants, just in some cases a smaller increase in volume may be a better choice.
Perhaps most importantly for those having breast augmentation is to have good rapport with your surgeon. Be sure to clearly communicate your goals and discuss them with your doctor. He or she will be able to help you choose the right size for implants as well as possibly suggesting a breast lift to go with the augmentation. In the office you will also have the opportunity to look at before and after photos to find pictures of women with similar body types and see how their augmentation improved their appearance.
