Breast Augmentation Options: Which One is Right for You?

Breast Augmentation in Atlanta, GADo you find yourself wishing for larger or fuller breasts? Many women feel as though their figure would be more proportional and attractive if only their breasts were larger. Breast augmentation is a great option for women wishing to enhance the natural size and shape of their breasts. Many women choose to have breast augmentation surgery after childbirth and breastfeeding.

What’s my first step?

Before your breast augmentation procedure, schedule a consultation appointment for evaluation and to discuss different options. Depending on your body type, age, and desired appearance, your doctor will help you decide between saline implants and silicone implants. There is no “right choice,” and your breast augmentation solution will probably be different from someone else’s. During this appointment, your doctor will develop a personalized treatment plan fit for your body and discuss the details of the procedure with you.

Which implants are right for me?

Saline implants are silicone shells that are filled with sterile salt water. The shell is filled with saline after it is inserted in your body, so a smaller incision is made for saline implants. Saline implants are typically more firm than silicone implants, and some women say that their saline implants feel similar to water balloons. Saline implants are available to women ages 18 and over. Silicone implants are filled with a gel-like substance. Because the implants are filled before being inserted into the body, a larger incision is needed for silicone implants. The silicone gel flows within the shell, closely mimicking the look and feel of natural breasts. Silicone implants are softer than saline implants. Silicone implants are available to women ages 22 and over. Are you ready to restore your confidence? Contact Dr. Killingsworth at Atlanta Aesthetics, serving the Atlanta and Forsyth County areas.
