Choosing your breast implant type and size is a critical part of the process of breast augmentation. Many women have a specific cup size in mind but forget to consider their body shape, lifestyle and other factors that influence the style and size of breast implant for each patient. Dr. Hause is a board-certified plastic surgeon who offers several breast implant types, including silicone, saline and IDEAL breast implants, and will help you determine the right breast implant for your unique goals and figure.
1. Consider Your Body Shape and Lifestyle for Breast Implant Size
Choosing the volume of your breast implants is about more than bra size. The same size breast implant will look vastly different on a short and thin patient than someone tall with a curvier figure. Consider your motives for breast enhancement, such as restoring breasts after pregnancy and breastfeeding or increasing a naturally small bust. Your implants should fit your body and balance your figure, not overwhelm your physique. Implant sizers used in our Sacramento office will help you visualize your breast augmentation results.
If you lead an active lifestyle, you will want to incorporate that into your decision. Cardio exercises such as running are challenging with large breasts, so a bigger implant size could limit your activities after recovery. Breast implants should fit your body and stature so you can continue to enjoy specific exercises and sports.
2. Consult a Trusted Friend About Your Breast Implants
Talk with a loved one whom you trust about your goals for your breasts. They can help you weigh your options and pick an implant type and size that will provide the breast enhancement you’re looking for while maintaining a natural look and feel. Their input will ensure you make a well-balanced decision for breast augmentation. You can bring them with you to your consultation at Sacramento Aesthetic Surgery to help you absorb all of the information about the procedure, your available choices and the process from start to finish.
3. Ask Plenty of Questions at Your Breast Augmentation Consultation
Most of our patients have done cursory research online about breast augmentation and implant choices, but it’s important to ask plenty of questions when you’re face to face with an expert plastic surgeon such as Dr. Hause. He will go over your medical history and discuss your breast implant options, such as the pros and cons of saline implants versus silicone implants and your desired results for look and feel.
Every woman is unique, and no two breasts are the same. Your breast augmentation will be tailored to you so you can enjoy a larger bust that fills out clothing and matches your body shape.
