Women who are unhappy with the size of their breasts and wish to achieve a larger chest can often benefit from a breast augmentation. While this procedure is very popular, it is important to fully understand what it involves and what to expect. Here are a few things that you should consider before undergoing breast augmentation surgery in Brandon.

Breast Augmentation Cannot Lift Breasts

Many women know that a breast augmentation can augment the size of the breast, but many women may not know that it cannot lift the breasts or correct sagging breasts. If you are dealing with sagging or drooping breasts, a breast lift or mastopexy will be needed. In many cases, a breast augmentation can be combined with a lift to give you the larger breasts you want, as well as a lifted breast appearance.

Breast Implant Will Need to Be Replaced

While the breast implants of today are long-lasting, they are not lifetime devices. Implants can last more than 10 years, but eventually they will require replacement. After you receive breast implants, you will need to attend annual checkups and perform self-breast exams regularly to ensure that your breast implants are still intact.

Picking an Implant Type

While saline and silicone breast implants are the most popular types used today, there are also many factors that go into picking breast implants. These include the right shape (round or teardrop), texture (smooth or texturized) and profile. The right sized implant can also differ depending on your individual body proportions and your skin elasticity.
