Breast Augmentation Can Give You a Fuller, Natural Look
Gone are the days when breast implants were associated with an artificial, over-the-top look. In modern times, women from all walks of life choose breast augmentation for a variety of reasons, including simply to enhance their natural curves and create a more feminine figure. At Omar Ahmed, M.D., board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgical specialist Dr. Omar Ahmed helps women achieve their desired outcomes through advanced breast enhancement surgeries, including breast augmentation. Take a closer look here at the different options you may have for breast augmentation surgery, and find out which approach is preferred for patients hoping for the most natural look and feel possible.
Is breast augmentation right for me?
Breast augmentation surgery can be highly beneficial – both cosmetically and psychologically – for a number of women, including those with naturally small breasts and those who have lost breast volume due to age, pregnancy, or breastfeeding. Patients considering breast augmentation should be at a healthy weight, nonsmoking, and have realistic expectations for their outcome.
What are my options for breast implants?
The majority of breast augmentation procedures involve the placement of either saline or silicone gel breast implants. A third option, which does not use a synthetic implant, is known as a fat transfer to the breast. Some of the unique characteristics of each include:
- Saline breast implants: Saline implants are composed of a silicone shell, which is filled with a sterile, fluid saline solution. If ruptured, saline implants will deflate almost immediately, meaning implant replacement will need to be performed in a timely fashion in order to restore breast symmetry. The saline solution can be safely absorbed by the body in the event of implant rupture.
- Silicone gel breast implants: Reserved for women 22 years of age and older, silicone gel implants are widely popular – particularly for the more natural look and feel they provide compared with saline implants. Women who are thin, have thin skin, or have little natural breast tissue may be better suited to breast augmentation with silicone implants, as these implants are less prone to visible rippling.
- Fat transfer to the breast: In a fat transfer breast augmentation, excess fat is removed from one area of the patient’s body via liposuction and reinjected into the breasts to create a fuller, more desirable shape. Patients who prefer the most natural approach – as well as the most natural look and feel possible – may be good candidates for a breast fat transfer.
Will my breasts look fake with breast implants?
During your initial consultation, Dr. Ahmed will discuss your goals at length and recommend the most appropriate implant type, size, profile, and placement for you. For women who prefer a natural look, Dr. Ahmed may recommend fat transfer to the breast – or, in some cases, a combination of breast implants with fat transfer. Whether you’re hoping for a subtle enhancement or a dramatic change to your look, Dr. Ahmed can create a customized surgical plan just for you.
