What Implants Should I Choose for my Breast Augmentation?

Breast Implants Atlantic County

If you feel dissatisfied with the size or shape of your breasts, you have plenty of company. Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries, and demand shows no signs of decreasing. Dr. Coville, who has performed thousands of Breast procedures, will help you select the best implant to give you the size, shape, and feel you prefer. 

How Does Breast Augmentation Work?

To insert your breast implants, Dr. Coville will make an incision under the breast, around the areola, or in the underarm area. He will create a pocket behind the breast tissue or under the pectoral muscle, depending on the final results you want to achieve. After placing the implants in their pockets, Dr. Coville closes the small incisions for an inconspicuous, often barely visible scar. 

What Implants Should I Choose for my Breast Augmentation? 

You have a wide range of options when choosing breast implants. Depending on what results you want from your breast augmentation, you may choose from various shapes and a more or less natural look and feel. Dr. Coville prefers to use Sientra breast implants which are only available for use by Board Eligible or Board Certified Plastic Surgeons.

Silicone vs. Saline

Breast implants contain saline, a sterile saltwater solution, or silicone, an inert body-safe material. Dr. Coville feels that silicone implants usually give a more natural feel and appearance, but he will use saline implants if you prefer them. He has extensive familiarity with silicone implants used worldwide and offers the best, safest options. 

Gummy Bear Implants

These implants use a firmer, more resilient type of silicone than the gel contained in typical implants. This material maintains its shape even if damaged. Discuss gummy bear implants with Dr. Coville if you are interested in them. 

Implant Shape

Implants not only change the size of your breasts but can also reshape them. Implants in different shapes can add noticeable upper volume, increase forward projection, or give a more natural pear-shaped appearance. 

No Implants

You also have an option that uses no implants at all. Fat transfer breast augmentation removes your fat from elsewhere in your body and injects it into strategic locations in the breasts. You will see a subtle but noticeable volume enhancement.

What are the Benefits of Breast Augmentation?

Benefits from breast augmentation extend beyond just breast size. Many women find that they feel more feminine, can fit into a wider variety of clothes, and feel more confident. Breast augmentation can also correct volume loss after pregnancy or significant weight changes.  

What is Recovery Like From Breast Augmentation?

Each person’s surgery will be different, so each will have a different recovery timeline. If your job requires minimal physical activity, you can return within a week. Strenuous exercise, especially any type of lifting, should wait up to six weeks. Most people have fully recovered within four to six weeks.
