The Top 4 Things You Should Consider About Breast Augmentation

 If you’re like the thousands of women (and men) here in Santa Rosa, Marin County, and the Bay Area who have considered breast augmentation surgery, we’re sure you’ve put a lot of thought into it. After all, your breasts are an important part of your body, and something that you deal with both physically and aesthetically every day. Breast augmentation procedures are safer and more effective than ever, and Dr. Mohebali has many years of time tested experience and education to provide you with the best fit for your body, with minimal visible scarring or damage. Before you commit, here are four things you should know about breast implants and augmentation that will help you make the best decision in regards to the procedure, and net the best results.

  1. What’s in your implants (Silicone vs. Saline). While there’s no “bad choice” when it comes to either of these materials, it is important to know and understand the difference between them. Saline is essentially salt water that’s injected into the implant after it has been placed within the breast. Incisions for Saline implants are typically smaller, as less material has to go through them to complete the intended outcome of the procedure. Saline is also easier to size, as it is adjusted after the implant is already in. Silicone, on the other hand, is made up of a synthetic gel that is meant to mimic the feel of human fat that’s naturally stored alongside the breast tissue. These implants are sized before insertion, and have a more “natural” feel to the touch. They are also more popular than Saline implants.
  1. Size. The old adage that “bigger is better” really doesn’t apply to breast implants, despite what you may think. Breast augmentations are meant to make the breasts bigger, yes, but the actual size really should depend on the person’s body, and physical comfort. For some women, this means much bigger breasts, and for others, this means simply a slight size change. Breast augmentations don’t just increase size, they also improve shape, which can be even more effective than a massive size change in regards to aesthetics and personal comfort.
  1. Shape. Not all breast implants are shaped alike, and that’s a good thing. Breast implants typically come in two shapes: round or anatomical. This means that you can choose how your breasts fit your body based on the contours of your chest and midsection, as well as how you want them to look. Round breast implants can also be shaped anatomically, however unlike anatomical breast implants, they tend to keep their shape based on the procedure, rather than adjust over time as anatomical breast implants have a tendency to do. Ask Dr. Mohebali what he suggests during your consultation, to make sure you choose the right shape for your fit.
  1. Surgeon. Choosing your surgeon may be the most important decision in the process. Dr. Mohebali is a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in breast surgery, including breast augmentation. He performs hundreds of breast surgeries yearly. Make sure you do your research in choosing a board certified surgeon who will work with you to achieve your desired results.
