Breast Augmentation is probably the most personal of all choices a woman can make in terms of cosmetic procedures. There are many reasons a woman may choose breast implants for breast augmentation:
Dr. Dellinger believes that your breast augmentation surgery should be custom designed around you. Our goal is to achieve a result that you find accents and enhances your figure. There are many different results that can be achieved, and we’re here to guide and advise you in the making the choices that create the result that’s personalized just for you.
Size: What type of breast size results do you want to achieve? This is probably the most important decision to make. Rather than focus on cup size or numbers of cc’s, we would like to see you choose based on appearance. You will be given the opportunity to try out implants and make the selection based on what you like. We’ll be here to help guide you in the sizing process and you’ll be given the opportunity to try implants out more than once just to be sure.
Shape: Are you looking for breasts that emphasize projection rather than fullness, or do you want a fuller breast with more volume and better cleavage? Each size of breast implant is available in a variety of profiles – from low profile, moderate profile, high profile and ultra-high. The higher the profile, the more projection (out) and the smaller the base (width). This means you can achieve a greater degree of projection with a smaller implant but may have less cleavage.
Implants: Most patients choose silicone breast implants as they provide the best, most natural texture and feel, with the least amount of rippling. Saline filled breast implants are best for patients who still have worries about silicone, however saline feels the least natural and is more prone to visible rippling. Cohesive gel or “gummy bear” implants are good for certain situations, and may be good choice under the right circumstances.
Incision Choices: Most women choose to have a small incision under the fold of the breast, which best for silicone implants and very well camouflaged in the final result. Other incision choices include peri-areolar (around the edge of the nipple) or trans-axillary (armpit).
Placement: Most patients choose to have implants placed above the muscle, however in certain situations, a patient may be an acceptable candidate for placement above.
