Breast Augmentation Options in Miami: Which One is Right for You?
Breast augmentation is, without a doubt, one of the most popular procedures at any plastic surgery office. Patients everywhere love having the ability to finally achieve the shape that they desire, all with a safe and reliable procedure. With this popularity also comes a variety of different options from which to choose, customizing your breast augmentation so that it is exactly what you need. So, if you are wondering about the different implant options and how they will impact your procedure, here is what you need to know:
Saline vs. Silicone
Anyone preparing for a breast augmentation will likely be familiar with the most common question: saline or silicone? This refers to the material of the implant, and is one of the first choices you will make on your path to breast augmentation.
Saline implants are a shell that is filled with saline, a solution similar to the fluid found in the body. Silicone implants, on the other hand, are made of a medical-grade, gummy-feeling material. Although saline implants are easier to spot if a leak should occur, many patients report silicone implants feeling more like natural breast tissue.
Ultimately, neither material is arbitrarily better or worse, and recovery time will be the same–roughly one to two weeks. Ultimately, implant choice is dependent upon the individual to weigh the pros and cons of each. Dr. Afrooz will also provide his professional opinion regarding which implant may be best suited for your body.
Another element of your breast augmentation procedure is the decision of whether to place the implant above or below the chest wall muscle. Both locations are entirely safe and create satisfying results. However, different patients may prefer one placement over another. These questions and concerns can be addressed in detail during your consultation.
