Breast augmentation is the most popular cosmetic surgery that is performed to improve the size and shape of breasts and mostly breast implants are used for this purpose. Breast implants are sac like structures filled with some substance and are placed in the breasts to give them shape and volume. Breast implants improve the appearance of your breasts but for this purpose there are some factors that are important to consider because they affect the results and can make them better.
Breast implants come in variety of shapes and sizes and the results of the procedure differ depending on their size and shape. Your surgeon can decide about selecting the size and shape of implants that is suitable for you and can give better results. During consultation, you should discuss all of your issues and expectations with your surgeon so that he can come to know about the results you want.
There are various types of breast implants but saline implants and silicone gel implants are mostly used for breast augmentation. Various factors associated with breast implants that can affect the results are given below.
The main thing that affects the appearance of breasts is the profile of breast implants. Low profile implants are generally flat and wide and a medium profile breast implant of same volume will have smaller diameter but will have more projection. High profile breast implants have the most bubbly appearance and are perfect for the women having narrow chest wall. High profile breast implants are considered giving better shape to wide and flat breasts.
The size of breast implants is another important thing that matters in achieving better appearance of breast implants. Saline and silicone implants come in different sizes. When it comes to consider size saline implants are better option because they are filled after placing them in the breasts and size can be customized to the one that is best suitable for you. On the other hand, silicone implants come pre-filled and size can’t be altered after inserting them.
Another important thing that can affect the appearance and shape of breasts is the texture of implants and the surface of the breast implants can be smooth or textured. Previously smooth shell implants came in the market but then textured shell implants were developed to decrease the risk of capsular contracture that is hardening of implant. Textured implants show rippling and feel harder but smooth implants give more natural looking results and are mostly preferred on textured implants.
Shape of breast implants is also an important issue to keep in mind if you want to achieve better appearance of breasts. Breast implants have round and anatomical shapes. Round implants are symmetric but shaped implants are more projected at the bottom and have more volume.
In short, there are a number of issues to consider if you want to achieve perfect appearance of your breasts through breast implants.
