There are so many different kinds and names of silicone breast implants out there. But when we zoom out, there’s really only 2 different types. Silicone breast implants have been through 5 generations of evolution to get us to the breast implants plastic surgeons use in their practice today.
Learning how breast implants will enhance your breasts is a super exciting part of your pre-surgery journey. You may find yourself wondering how exactly breastimplants will change your breasts. And even… your areola size.
The most common reason women chose to change their breast implants is to change the size. That being said, I’ve seen plenty of women on Instagram and in my private breast augmentation community, Bustmob who choose to change their breast implant type.
Whether you’re prepping ahead of baby’s arrival for a little boobie boost or your little bundle of joy has just arrived, it’s worth knowing that there is a bit of waiting required before you can head into surgery.
Ok, so there’s no getting around it, money is a BIG factor when you’re considering a breast augmentation. After all, it’s a big investment. But the cost should never be the deciding factor when you’re making a decision on who to carry out your breast surgery.
Whether you’re just embarking on the beginning of a breast augmentation journey there’ll be a whole host of new things you’ll learn. Like…. there are MANY different implant choices! Focusing specifically on one type of salinebreast implant, let me introduce you to the Ideal Implant.
There’s no getting away from it… a breast augmentation is a BIG financial investment. So you should definitely be focused on spending your money to get a surgical outcome you’re happy with. This is where knowing your augmentation goals is super important!
We each bring our own unique existing anatomy to the breast augmentation table. Your existing breast anatomy is key to what your augmentation surgery will involve, the kind of implants that you can have and what your post-surgical outcome will be. Let’s talk about tuberous breasts!
There may come a point in life when women decide that they would like a breast augmentation. It kinda fits with the whole ‘after kids’ phase in life that the average age of women seeking a BA is mid-30’s. But I’ve heard of women in their 70s getting breast implants!
Traveling for surgery may not have been something you’d thought about. But when you think outside the box and consider ALL the different ways of finding the right surgeon for you, you might come to the conclusion that experience and quality are worth traveling for over cost and convenience.
When you’re finding out all you can ahead of a breast augmentation surgery you may come across a few terms you don’t know the meaning of! Like… what is a Keller Funnel?! And what does it have to do with my future silicone breast implants?
Focusing on silicone, there are also two different versions of silicone breast implants: There are Silicone gels (usually just referred to as silicone implants), and highly-cohesive silicone gels (called Gummy Bear)! Here’s the difference between the two.
Fat Grafting is a relatively new option in cosmetic breast surgery. You’ll have likely heard about liposuction (removing excess fat from the body), but only recently have surgeons been then using a patient’s removed fat to enhance other areas of the body.
I get asked a LOT which breast implants feel most like breast tissue. Straight up, there is no exact answer to this question! The reason I can’t give you an exact answer is that it depends on a few things. Here are a few things you need to consider before selecting your breast implant!
It’s fair to say that most women don’t walk in to a plastic surgeon’s office and specifically asks for additional scars on their breasts! A lift may not even have crossed your mind but it could be a really useful surgical procedure to give you the look you’re wanting.
Our bodies go through some amazing changes and transformations for our little ones while pregnant. But once we’re done having kids, you may not be super pumped about how things have… changed. You may have heard the term “mommy makeover” but are wondering “what the heck IS a mommy makeover?!”
When you choose to consult with a Board Certified plastic surgeon about a breast augmentation you can expect them to run through2 key areas that will steer them (and you - in collaboration with your surgeon) to the right size breast implant for you.
We are all unique. Our breasts are unique. In fact, each of our breasts are unique. Ever heard the phrase “they’re sisters, not twins”? Well, what this means is that our breasts are not identical, in shape or size!
