Choosing the Right Breast Implant

There are many types of breast implants in Houston women can choose from. In order to help you decide if a breast implant is right for you or which type to get, it may be easier to think of them as a device. Like other devices, they are not perfect, do not last forever, and require maintenance. By thinking of them this way you can learn how to prolong their life and make a decision about maintenance if it is needed. In addition to deciding which type of implant to choose, women need to decide if they want a breast augmentation that gives them implants while changing or lifting the shape of their breasts.
It can be hard sorting through the different type of implants that are available today. A couple of the more popular choices are the prefilled breast implants and inflatable breast implants. These can be inserted around the nipple or on the fold under the breast. A new technique, the transumbilical breast augmentation, is an option for those who do not want any visible scar.  In order to decide which method and type of implant is right for you it can be discussed with a Houston cosmetic surgeon. What your expectations are after the surgery can help determine which implant and procedure is best for you.

In order to choose the right breast implant, a woman needs to think about how they want their breasts to feel afterward since not all implants feel the same. Keep in mind how long the shell of a breast implant is expected to last and what happens if there is a leak. You can do much of this research yourself but it is important to find a plastic surgeon that is open about the pros and cons each type of breast implant brings with it. An honest plastic surgeon means you can make the right decision for you and your body. You can learn what increases the chance of the shell from failing and avoid those situations as much as possible to increase the longevity of your breast implants.
