Augmentation Shaped Implants
Breasts and body types fluctuate greatly from woman to woman, so the idyllic breast implant shape for each patient must be determined with care. Dr. Salomon helps his patients to select the perfect implant shape and size from the wide variety available. As the name indicates, a teardrop breast implant, also known as a contoured, shaped, or anatomical breast implant, is shaped like a teardrop. Breasts attain a more gently sloping contour with teardrop breast implants. Although the upper portion of breasts that have been augmented with teardrop implants are not as full as breasts that have round implants, teardrop-shaped implants often provide greater projection by volume.
For women who want more naturally shaped teardrop breasts, these implants may be the ideal choice.
Augmentation-Shaped Implants FAQs
What is the recovery time for this procedure?
A patient will have to wait until her recommended pain management regimen has concluded. During that time, the patient should not lift her arms above her head for the first ten days after her procedure. Also, the patient should not perform large movements or strenuous lifting for a full six weeks after surgery. Driving, working in an office environment, and performing other smaller activities may be performed sooner at the discretion of your surgeon.
Does breast augmentation affect breast feeding in any way?
Almost every study performed in this area agrees that there is no ill effect on breast milk or infant health as a result from breast augmentation. Because of this, new mothers should feel confident in breast feeding their children just as if they had not had augmentation surgery at all.
What is the “right” size for a breast augmentation surgery?
Because each situation and patient is different, when it comes to cosmetic surgery, including breast augmentation and lifts, the “right size” is highly subjective. Dr. Salomon will work with you to help determine a size that is manageable, aesthetically pleasing, and in line with your goals for your body.
Is there a long-term impact on health?
Although there has been some controversy in regards to silicone gel implants, the FDA ultimately ruled almost ten years ago that these implants do not lead to any health complications which include an increased risk of disease or infection. Saline implants are also regarded as safe and are another option if you are considering a breast augmentation. It is always advisable to check with a physician about the different types and brands of implants to better understand the options that are available to you.
