Breast augmentation is the most popular cosmetic surgical procedure in the United States. It is the most commonly performed procedure by Dr. Alton Ingram in Nashville TN.
This is because breast augmentation has the highest patient satisfaction and the lowest complication rate of all common cosmetic procedures. Breast augmentation is not just about having larger breasts. This incredibly popular procedure doesn’t only add size. It also transforms the shape and quality of a woman’s chest.
Women may seek breast augmentation for many reasons. Breast augmentation can increase your breast size to balance your proportions, can restore your breast fullness after weight loss or pregnancy, can increase the symmetry of your chest, and can transform the way you dress and improve your self-confidence.
Breast Augmentation includes many different breast enlargement procedures: breast implants, fat injections, breast lifts, and may other more specific techniques which can increase your symmetry and give you other overall cosmetic improvements.
For most people, breast augmentation is performed by inserting an implant behind the breast through an incision which can be as small as one inch. Your implants may be placed behind your breast gland or behind your pectoral muscle – this decision depends on the shape you want to achieve, the type of implant that you choose, how much breast tissue you already have, and how loose or tight your skin already is.
You may undergo breast augmentation for variety of personal reasons. When you are ready seriously to think about breast augmentation surgery, you may want to consider the following issues
Physical Changes You May Seek:
Before your breast augmentation consultation, you should think about all of the above considerations and make sure that you are ready for breast augmentation. Once you know that it’s time, you probably will have done lots of internet research and even may have spoken about the surgery with some friends who have had the operation and even with some other surgeons.
Some of the most important things for you to think about before we speak in person and can focus just on you, your body, and your goals, are:
Think about Saline versus Silicone implants.
Silicone implants look and feel more like natural breasts – otherwise, nobody would ever use them!
But silicone implants are a bit more expensive than saline, some people have concerns about their safety, and some patients will actually have a better result (will be better able to achieve their specific cosmetic goals, given their body shape) with saline implants
Think about the shape you want to have after surgery.
Talk to people who have had the operation and look at lots of photos.
