Feeling confident, more feminine and “normal,” enhancing self-esteem – these are just a few of the reasons why breast augmentation is the number one cosmetic procedure in the world for women. Since 1961, when the first of the silicone breast implants were created, women have flocked to plastic surgeons to request this procedure.
- Basic silicone implants have changed dramatically since the early days and were approved for general use by the FDA in November 2006; they are pre-filled by the manufacturer. As another choice in fill material, saline implants are filled with sterile injectable 0.9% saline at the time of surgery.
- San Antonio Cosmetic Surgery offers both saline and the newest silicone gel or “gummy-bear” Because each patient is unique, the pros and cons of each implant material will be explained to you to ensure that you make the correct choice for your body.
- In addition to the choice of implant materials, you can choose the shape or contour of your implant – either round, the most common shape in the U.S. – or contoured, “tear drop” shaped, which is most often used in breast reconstruction following tissue expansion and in thinner patients.
- Other augmentation considerations which will be discussed with you at your consultation are the placement of the incisions and choosing the correct implant size.
These considerations are important as you decide whether or not to undergo breast augmentation surgery, and are just a few of the reasons to choose Dr. Ortegon as your plastic surgeon.
Keep in mind that breast augmentation surgery is major surgery, on your body. It is something to do for you. Doing it for someone else may cause emotional problems and resentment. If your current love interest wishes you had larger breasts, perhaps you should reconsider. Breast implants can be life-changing and the decision to undergo this surgery is one of the most important decisions you will make.
