How Adjustable Breast Implants Work
If you’re considering breast augmentation in the San Antonio or Austin area, you should learn more about adjustable breast implants. Once you’ve undergone the surgery and received the implants, you’ll have six months to test out the implants. Depending on your preferences, the patient can come back to increase or decrease the size of the implant at three to six months post-op. The port is removed in the office (under local) after six months and is temporary.
Imagine if you could change the size of your breasts just by thinking it. Although they’re not nearly this powerful, adjustable breast implants do let you change the size of the implants. The problem that many women face is swelling. During the first two months after breast augmentation, the area tends to remain swollen, so it’s almost impossible to determine the true size.
If you have implants that are adjustable, you can choose between smaller or larger breasts. However, you only have the first six months after the procedure to decide on the size.
After two months have passed, the swelling lessens, and patients can decide if they’re happy with the results. Traditional implants require a complete replacement of the implants, which can get quite complicated.
Achieve the Breast of Your Dreams with Adjustable Breast Implants
Are you ready for a beautiful new bustline but are not sure what size you want? Adjustable Breast Implant surgery just might be what you are looking for and can change the way you look and the way you feel about your body.
Is Breast Augmentation Right for You?
Most women would say that the way their breasts look plays a major role in how they feel about themselves. If you’re not happy with the size, shape or firmness of your breasts, it can have a serious impact on many aspects of your life. You might suffer from low self-esteem, feel self-conscious in your personal relationships and dislike the way you look in certain clothes.
The good news is that breast augmentation surgery can help any woman achieve her dreams of a full, firm and shapely bust. This procedure has been safely performed on millions of women. It can give you the same gorgeous results.
What is Breast Augmentation?
The term “breast augmentation” refers to any cosmetic surgical procedure that enhances the size of your breasts. If your breasts are small, misshapen, or noticeably different in size, a breast augmentation can change the way they look, making them larger, more shapely and more balanced. Breast augmentation is the most popular body-shaping surgery in the U.S. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, more than 290,000 women got a “boob job” in the past year, and the number grows every year.
Why is breast augmentation a popular procedure? There are several reasons.
- Many women feel that large breasts make them look and feel more desirable.
- There is a current societal preference for voluptuous, curvy shapes.
- The procedure has become so common that it’s no longer regarded as a shameful secret.
- Advances in surgery have led to results that look and feel more natural than ever.
- Many women get an augmentation as part of the popular “mommy makeover.”
Benefits of Breast Augmentation
- You’ll enhance the way you look in your favorite outfits and your bathing suit.
- You can stop wondering what it would be like to have full, beautiful breasts.
- You can choose your implant size and shape to get the exact bustline that you want.
- Breast augmentation is a safe, proven procedure that gets extremely high ratings from women who have had it done.
Who is a Good Candidate for Adjustable Breast Implant Surgery?
- Any woman who feels that her self-esteem would be improved if she had larger breasts.
- Women who have lost one or both breasts to cancer, trauma or other conditions.
- Women who were born with unevenly-sized breasts.
- Healthy, nonsmoking women whose weight is stable.
- Any woman who wants a better-looking body.
Is a Breast Augmentation the Same as a Breast Lift?
A breast lift is not the same thing as a breast augmentation. Breast augmentation only enlarges the breasts. It doesn’t lift them.
A breast lift is designed for women who don’t want larger breasts, but want their breasts to be “perky” and lifted. Age, childbirth and gravity can leave a woman’s breasts looking sunken and flabby. A breast lift restores them to their high, youthful position.
If you’re happy with the size and shape of your breasts but not their firmness, a breast lift is a better option for you. Of course, some women combine both procedures, and that is also an option.
Types of Breast Augmentation Surgery
When you’re considering breast augmentation, you can choose traditional implant surgery or the new fat grafting method. What are the differences between these two types? Which one is better for you? Here’s the rundown on each one.
Breast Implant Surgery
Implant surgery is the most common type of breast augmentation. This is the classic procedure that involves placing a silicone or saline implant in the breast to add volume and shape.
What the Procedure Involves
Your breast implant surgery starts with a consultation with your plastic surgeon. You can talk about how large you’d like your breasts to be and how you want your new bust to look. You’ll have the chance to try on different implant sizes to help you make the choice.
You’ll probably have the surgery at your surgeon’s office or surgical clinic. Breast implant surgery usually takes about three hours, and you’ll be under general anesthesia. You should make arrangements for a ride home afterward.
How to Choose the Right Breast Implants
In addition to choosing your breast size, you’ll also be choosing the material for your breast implants. Your plastic surgeon is the best person to consult for help when making this decision.
This is the most popular choice. Silicone implants are used in over 90% of breast implant surgeries, according to a report in Allure magazine. Silicone has many benefits. Silicone implants have continued to improve over the past decade, and many are now manufactured with special features that make them look, move and feel like natural breasts. Silicone implants look natural, feel comfortable and have been proven safe.
If you have medical reasons for avoiding silicone, or you prefer an implant that’s made of natural materials, you can still get excellent results with saline implants. Saline implants sometimes come with special inserts that help them look more natural.
These are the new entry on the implant scene. So-called gummy bear implants are made of thicker silicone with a consistency similar to their candy namesakes. Some doctors believe that they are less likely to shift than traditional silicone implants.
The best part of adjustable breast implants is that you don’t have to choose upfront, on your follow ups with Dr Jeneby, he will evaluate how you feel at the starting size and add or remove until you get the size you feel most comfortable with.
Breast implant sizes are measured in cubic centimeters. Implants come in sizes from 120 cc to 800 cc. The most popular sizes are the small 250 cc and the medium 350 cc sizes. If your natural breasts are different in size, you will probably need a different size for each one.
In addition to size, you should also discuss profile with your doctor. In breast terminology, profile refers to how much your breasts point out from your chest. You can select low, high or ultra high profiles.
What Results Can You Expect from Breast Implant Surgery?
Breast implant surgery can give you the exact size, shape and profile that you want. You’ll see dramatic results as soon as you recover. It is a procedure trusted by millions of satisfied women.
It’s also long-lasting. Breast implants can last up to 10 years.
- The procedure is done in one day and does not require a hospital stay.
- You have a huge selection of breast sizes and shapes to choose from.
- It’s the only way to increase breast size by two cups or more.
- The results are controllable and predictable.
- Women report almost universally high satisfaction for breast implant surgery.
- The recovery is longer than it is for fat graft augmentation.
- The cost is generally higher than the cost of fat graft augmentation.
Fat Graft Augmentation Surgery
This is also known as fat transfer augmentation, natural breast enhancement or natural breast augmentation. It’s called “natural” because it uses fat from your own body to enhance your breasts. Some women who don’t like the idea of implants have chosen this technique.
What the Procedure Involves
This procedure actually involves three steps. First, you have liposuction to remove fat from a targeted area. This could be your waist, stomach, thighs or buttocks.
Your surgeon then preserves and sterilizes the harvested fat cells from the liposuction. You may be asked to wear a special bra that gently stretches out the skin of your breasts. This ensures that your breasts will have enough volume to absorb the fat. You may have to wear the bra to bed for several nights or weeks.
The final step is the fat injection. Your doctor injects the harvested fat directly into your breast tissue. Your breasts absorb the fat and grow larger.
What Results Can You Expect from Breast Implant Surgery?
Natural breast augmentation gives the most natural-looking results because it uses your own fat. You get a look similar to the look you’d have if you were born with a larger bust.
You won’t see the results immediately, however, as it can take a few weeks for your body to fully absorb the fat cells. It’s also not t suitable for women who want to go up more than one cup size.
- It is less invasive than traditional surgery.
- The results look and feel completely natural.
- You can eliminate fat from somewhere else on your body.
- It usually costs less than surgery.
- It produces a more natural-looking cleavage than implant surgery.
- The process involves two procedures and several other steps.
- It can only increase breasts by about one cup size.
- Because it relies on your body’s natural processes, the final outcome is less predictable than it is for implant surgery.
After Your Breast Augmentation Surgery
Whether you have implant surgery or natural breast enhancement, it’s important to follow your surgeon’s instructions for aftercare and follow-up appointments.
After your surgery, your breasts may initially feel hard. They may also look like they’re placed too high on your chest. This is normal. After a few weeks, they will get soft and fall into a natural line. This process is known as “drop and fluff.” It’s more common among women who have increased their breast size significantly.
