3 Things to Consider For Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures performed in the U.S., and for good reason; not only can the procedure give you a full, balanced breast appearance, it can give your confidence and self-image a boost.

If you are thinking about breast augmentation, consider the following:

Choosing the Right Implant

Choosing the right implant involves more than moving up to a new cup size; your new breasts should fully complement your physique. Dr. Chalekson offers the following types of breast implants:

  • Saline
  • Silicone
  • Gummy bear
  • Fat transfer

The size of your breast implant is important, but so is the shape, texture, and material. During your initial consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Charles Chalekson, he will explain all of your options and customize a treatment plan tailored specifically for you and your unique needs.

Incision Placement Options

Another key consideration for breast augmentation is the placement of your incisions. The ideal incision placement option for you will be based on your unique anatomy and needs. Depending on your individual circumstances, Dr. Chalekson may recommend:

  • Incision along the breast crease (inframammary)
  • Incision along the lower part of the nipple (peri-areolar)

Dr. Chalekson will discuss these options with you and recommend the approach he believes is best for your procedure.

Breast Implant Placement

Breast implants can be placed behind the breast tissue and over the chest muscle (subglandular), beneath the majority of the pectorals major chest muscle (submuscular) or a dual plane placement, in which the upper part of the implant is placed beneath the chest muscle and the lower part is placed below the breast placement.

The right placement for your breast implants will involve a number of considerations. Dr. Chalekson will discuss the different benefits of each option with you and determine which is best for your procedure.
