How to Choose the Right Breast Implant
When choosing your breast implants, keep in mind that the best choice will be based on your profile and your intended results, as well as a few other anatomical factors. You may want to restore your breasts to a pre-pregnancy or pre-weight loss size and shape, which could mean you also need a breast lift to treat sagging. An important aspect of breast augmentation is the surface of the implants. Implants with textured surfaces can reduce the chance of capsular contraction, but are more likely to be seen through the skin depending on the placement of the implant. The shape, volume and profile of the breast implant placement should ideally be chosen based on your individual breast-line goals. Placement is also a factor to consider because depending on where the implant is placed can change the appearance of it.
Surgical decisions such as placement and incision have an impact on the outcome of your surgery, which is why it is so important to discuss your options with one of our highly-experienced surgeons who have experience with breast augmentation surgery with breast implants. Your doctor can help you choose the implant and placement that best suit your condition as well as your goals. You surgeon can also explain the cost for Austin breast augmentation, which includes the breast implants cost and the fees for the surgeon, anesthesia, and facility.
