Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that places implants in your breast tissue to alter the size and shape of your breasts. It’s one of the most popular types of cosmetic surgery, and has been performed for decades.
Breast augmentation can help you achieve numerous goals. Some of the reasons women choose this procedure include a desire to:
When considering breast augmentation, the most important factor is to ensure the procedure helps you feel more confident about your own body, and not to conform to the aesthetic ideals of anyone else.
You have a number of choices when it comes to the style of breast implants used in your procedure. Dr. Towle can discuss the pros and cons of each option and help you find the product best suited to your treatment goals.
Most implants are made of silicone or saline. Silicone implants contain a soft gel that creates a very natural look and feel, but there is a small risk that the implant material can leak into your body.
Saline implants are made of a silicone shell filled with a saline solution. The size is adjusted by adding or removing saline from the implant. If these implants leak, your body can easily process the saline.
Gummy bear implants are another option. These implants are a bit more firm and hold their shape, and are a great option for some women.
Don’t be concerned about the volume of available options. Dr. Towle ensures you have the full details needed to make an informed decision about your breast augmentation options.
There are several approaches Dr. Towle can take to perform your breast augmentation. The decision on where to place your incisions is made according to your anatomy, the size and type of your implants, and your personal preferences.
Incision lines can be placed in the crease beneath your breasts, around your nipple, and in your armpit. Dr. Towle has the skill and experience needed to complete your enhancement with minimal scarring. You can also improve the appearance of your incision lines by closely adhering to your postoperative instructions.
