What Type of Procedure and Implants Are the Best Fit for Me?
There is an amazing assortment of breast implant options now available, and a similarly diverse selection of placement techniques. As a result, you may wonder which combination of products and procedures will be right for your breast augmentation. Dr. Denton Watumull, Dr. Bruce Byrne, Dr. Joshua A. Lemmon, and Dr. Robert Kwon, our board certified plastic surgeons, will customize a treatment plan to suit your needs and goals during your initial consultation.
An excellent way to determine the appropriate implant size, shape, and material for your body and desired outcome is to use our Vectra® 3D imaging software, which allows you to virtually “try on” breast implant types to see how they may potentially look following surgery. Furthermore, a thorough physical examination and discussion about your medical history can help to determine the optimal placement for the implants. Our doctors recommend implants be placed below the muscle to support the weight of the implant over time and for the most aesthetically appealing look and lowest risk of complications possible. Only in rare instances will they recommend placement above the muscle. We take your safety and result seriously, and we will never recommend a procedure that isn’t in your best interests. While our surgeons can provide guidance and advice, the ultimate decision of implant type will be up to you.
If you’re considering breast augmentation but feel overwhelmed by the options, including silicone or saline, round or shaped, textured or smooth, we can help you understand the differences between these products. Furthermore, breast implant sizes can look dramatically different on one body frame and another. Just because 350cc implants look great on your friend doesn’t mean that’s the ideal size for you. Our imaging software can allow you to compare various volumes to find the one that gives you the shape and fullness you’ve been dreaming of.
