4 Things To Know Before Getting Breast Implants

Breast Implants DCIf you’re one of the many women considering breast implants, there are a few things to know before deciding on the procedure.

The 4 things to know about breast implants

  1. Not all implants are the same– Some implants can give you a fuller look, others can offer more projection, and some offer a natural look. At Bruno | Brown we offer ideal implants, silicone, and saline. Each implant has its own set of benefits which we can discuss during your consultation.
  2. You can combine the procedure with others– Many of our patients choose to combine their breast implant procedure with other procedures such as a breast lift or tummy tuck. Combining procedures can also mean that your recovery time is combined and you can reach your overall goals quicker.
  3. Scarring can be minimal and practically invisible– Each patient heals differently, but our doctors are extremely conscious about incision placement so your scarring is minimal, and for some patients completely unnoticeable once fully recovered.
  4. There are other options to enlarge your breasts without implants– Some patients aren’t sure that they want to commit to getting implants, in that case, a fat-grafting breast augmentation might be right for you. In this procedure, we can remove fat from other areas of your body and place it in your breast to enlarge it using your own fat.

What we’ll go over during your breast implant consultation

During your consultation, we’ll discuss your goals for your breasts and what you’re hoping to achieve. We want to ensure it’s the right procedure for you and go through what to expect before, during, and after the procedure.

After the incisions are made, the underlying breast tissue is lifted and reshaped, the nipple and areola are repositioned, and any excess breast skin is removed.

The four types of breast lift procedure are:

  • Anchor: 3 basic incisions, one around the areola, one vertical to the breast crease, and one horizontal along the breast crease
  • Lollipop: 2 basic incisions, one around the areola and one vertical to the breast crease
  • Periareolar: 1 incision around the areola
  • Crescent: 1 along the top half of the areola

Most patients experience a recovery time of 1-2 weeks so you can be back to your normal activities in no time.
