Each year, many women decide to undergo breast augmentation surgery to enhance their self-confidence. Breast augmentation involves surgically placing breast implants to increase the size of naturally small breasts, restore breast volume after breast-feeding, weight loss, or pregnancy, or to provide improved symmetry.
Breast Augmentation Choices
Women have several options when it comes to breast augmentation surgery, including silicone and saline implants. These choices depend on the desires and needs of each individual patient. Another alternative that offers the best of both worlds is the IDEAL IMPLANT. The innovative design of the IDEAL IMPLANT helps to minimize the bouncing linked with standard saline implants while having the natural feel of silicone gel implants.
Benefits of the IDEAL IMPLANT
The IDEAL IMPLANT, which is manufactured in the United States, is made up of several saline implant shells that gradually increase in size. Since the IDEAL IMPLANT is created to provide internal support, the upper portion does not collapse like a standard saline implant. It is also likely that this internal structure also helps to minimize the appearance of any wrinkles and folds. These wrinkles and folds are believed to be a common cause of implant deflation.
The IDEAL IMPLANT is inserted empty, which allows for a relatively small incision. After the implant is inserted, each lumen is filled with saline using self-sealing valves. If the IDEAL IMPLANT happens to rupture, a physical examination should be able to detect the rupture. To fix this problem, many patients can have the implant replaced with the use of just local anesthesia.
Before the Procedure
If you have been considering breast augmentation, there are a few important questions to ask your doctor before having the surgery:
- Are you certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery?
- How many years of training have you had?
- Am I a good candidate for this procedure?
