Breast Augmentation Q & A
What is breast augmentation?
Breast augmentation is a type of cosmetic surgery dedicated to improving the shape of your breasts or increasing their size. If your breasts are small, flat, or asymmetrical, Dr. Hsu can use implants to improve the appearance of your chest and help you feel more proportionate to your body’s shape.
Dr. Hsu examines your anatomy before coming up with your surgical treatment strategy. She will discuss with you the location of your incisions, most commonly placed in the crease under your breasts, or sometimes around your nipple. Breast implants are usually placed under your chest muscles, and occasionally under the breast tissue.
Breast augmentation surgery can be performed in 1-2 hours at Best Impression Cosmetic Surgery’s accredited private outpatient surgery center.
What are my breast augmentation implant options?
One key part of getting a breast augmentation is selecting the type of implant you’d like. Best Impression Cosmetic Surgery offers all of the choices available in today’s marketplace for breast enhancement, including implants of any shape or profile as well as silicone and saline breast implants.
Saline implants include an empty silicone shell that Dr. Hsu fills to your specifications with sterile saline. You can get saline implants starting at age 18.
Silicone implants also use a silicone shell but are filled with a cohesive silicone gel instead of saline. Silicone implants feel like natural breasts, but you need to come in regularly for Dr. Hsu to check them. You must be at least 22 years old to get a silicone implant breast augmentation.
During your consultation, you have the opportunity to explore a variety of possible breast sizes and a number of options regarding implant types. Dr. Hsu helps each patient choose the breast size and shape of her dreams.
You will also undergo VECTRA 3D Imaging and sizing during your consultation so that you can have a clear idea of how you will look after your breast augmentation surgery.
What makes me a good candidate for breast augmentation?
Breast augmentation can give you a new appreciation for your body, something that all women can benefit from. During your thorough discussion of your health and goals with Dr. Hsu, you will review the following:
- Are you physically healthy?
- Are your breasts fully developed? Have you had children yet or breastfed?
- What would you like to change about the shape or size of your breasts?
- What improvements are possible to achieve with breast augmentation?
With this information, Dr. Hsu helps you choose the right implant type and size for you, and she will give you instructions to follow before and after your surgery.
