Your breast augmentation procedure is completely customizable! You may have spent some time wondering if breast enlargement is something you want to pursue. Perhaps you’ve looked at before-and-after images and found some results that you like and some that you don’t like. Gone are the days when breast augmentation meant one thing. Today, breast augmentation is carefully tailored to the look and the results that you’ve been dreaming about. It’s important to choose an experienced breast surgeon who knows how to customize the procedure in this way.
Here are the main ways you can personalize breast augmentation:
- Implant type (saline, silicone, or gummy bear)
- Breast size
- Placement of the implant above or below the chest muscle
- Incision location around the lower half of the areola, or across the crease where the breast meets the chest wall (periareolar vs. inframammary, respectively)
Each of these aspects of surgery will influence the final look of your results. Dr. Chalekson will walk you through each option and help you choose. Oftentimes, the right options for you will depend on your current breast size, your current breast shape, your body frame, and your expectations of the results. Most women, whether they want large round breasts or a subtler enhancement, want the results to more or less look natural. Dr. Chalekson will help you find breast implants that look flattering and beautiful on your body.
Another way of customizing breast enlargement is by combining it with a breast lift. Some women decide that not only do they want larger breasts, but they also want to lift breasts that have begun to sag and become elongated. This is quite common as a natural part of aging, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and weight fluctuations. Dr. Chalekson can help you decide if you want an augmentation or lift alone, or a combined approach.
