Breast Implants: Implant Types, Procedure, & Recovery
Are you currently considering breast implants but aren’t sure if they’re right for you? The experienced plastic surgeons at Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery are here to help you determine if the procedure is right for you.
What to know about breast implants
Breast implants can be used to increase the size of your breasts, restore fullness lost due to aging or weight loss, and offer more symmetry among many other benefits.
There are several types of breast implants including:
- Saline Breast Implants: The shell is filled with saline to your preferred volume, increasing the shape and size of your breasts with a firmer feel.
- Silicone Breast Implants: A silicone shell is filled to your desired volume and offers a more natural feel.
- Ideal Breast Implants: Ideal Implants are saline implants that provide a natural feel and youthful look without using silicone gel by using a series of implant shells nested together and two separate chambers that hold the saline.
During your consultation, we’ll go through each type of implant to help you decide which is best for you. We’ll talk about your goals for your breast augmentation surgery, the size and shape you’re trying to achieve, and any other goals you’re hoping to achieve.
How we can support you during your breast implant recovery
Following your procedure, we will provide you with a supportive surgical bra to help control swelling. The average recovery time for most patients is between 1-2 weeks. It can vary depending on how the individual heals, but most can return to regular activity after a week and exercise after you’re fully healed.
