Investigating Breast Implants

Breast augmentation is a highly popular procedure, but many women are unaware of how they can create personalized results when they choose breast implants in Indiana. Knowing and understanding your options can help you effectively achieve the look you desire for an enhanced body contour and improved level of self-confidence.

One of the first questions you”ll probably encounter when it comes to your breast augmentation is silicone or saline. Here”s a breakdown of the two most widely used implants:

  • Silicone Implants are filled with a cohesive elastic gel. Women often report that silicone possesses a very “natural” feel, commonly compared to natural breast tissue. Many surgeons recommend that patients who opt for silicone implants return to their doctor regularly to ensure a rupture or leak does not occur.
  • Saline Implants are filled with a sterile saltwater solution. Some women find that saline does not feel as “natural” as silicone; however, it offers its own set of advantages in that surgeons can fill the implants during surgery (unlike silicone) to achieve the perfect shape and size. The body will also absorb the saline solution without any damage if a leak or rupture occurs.

A great way for you to customize your procedure is through choosing a projection to match your body type. Implant “profile” refers to how much an implant protrudes from the chest. Depending on the width of your chest wall, your surgeon can help you choose the projection level to achieve your desired look.

Regardless of the procedure, I recommend scheduling a consultation with a surgeon who has the experience and technical skills to help you contour your body according to your cosmetic goals.
