How to Find the Right Breast Implants for You

Breast Augmentation DCThe breast augmentation procedure is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures. Women across the nation undergo the procedure to increase their breast size, improve cleavage, increase breast fullness and feel confident in their body. But, when you decide you want a breast augmentation it’s important to find the procedure that matches your goals for your desired look.

Your breast implant options

  • Silicone- A silicone shell is filled to your desired volume and offers a more natural feel.
  • Saline- The shell is filled with saline to your preferred volume, increasing the shape and size of your breasts with a firmer feel.
  • Ideal 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.
  • Fat grafting- Some patients don’t want implants or feel they aren’t right for them, but there is an option. Fat grafting achieves a fuller look with a careful injection of fat. Fat is injected through very small straw-like cannulas leaving minimal evidence of the procedure.

Considerations for your breast implants

During your consultation, we’ll go through your goals for your procedure. Each implant can offer a different look so we’ll work to find the one that’s perfect for you. We’ll talk through the size and fullness you would like and how each implant could achieve that look.

Our doctors perform technically advanced procedures to achieve the best possible results for our patients. We take the time to listen to your wishlist and answer any questions you have before we get started. We’re here to help you achieve the breasts you want and support you through the process.

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.

When Is the Best Time to Get a Breast Augmentation?

Ideal timing for your breast augmentation procedure

  • You’re near your ideal body weight– We recommend that our patients are near their ideal body weight as weight loss and weight gain can have a large impact on the appearance of your breasts. We always want our patients to be happy with their results for years to come and to ensure long-term success, it’s best to maintain a relatively steady weight.
  • You’re not currently pregnant– This goes for almost any procedure, but we recommend that you wait until you’re no longer pregnant and your body has had time to adjust after giving birth. Pregnancy and its after-effects can drastically change your breast’s appearance. We can discuss this during your consultation as our recommendation can vary from patient to patient.
  • You’re ready to make a change in appearance– We understand that most patients take time to do their research prior to scheduling a consultation, but it’s important to fully understand the procedure you’re opting into. We’ll talk you through the procedure and ensure it’s right for your specific goals prior to moving forward. The procedure can drastically change your appearance and we want to ensure it’s in line with your desired look.
  • You have a week or two to recover– As with any surgery, there is a recovery period that should be taken seriously. Some patients need longer to properly recover than others but we always recommend you take your time easing back into your daily routine. This is something we’ll discuss prior to surgery so you can properly prepare for your recovery period.

What we discuss during your consultation for a breast augmentation

When To Consider Breast Implants

Breast Implants in DCBreast implants are common among women who wish to achieve larger, more symmetrical breasts. Many women wish to achieve larger looking breasts. Some turn to push-up bras, others turn to workout routines, but the only way to achieve natural-looking, long-lasting results is breast implants.

Signs that breast implants may be right for you:

  • You’re unable to achieve your desired result non-surgically– Push-up bras, exercise, and other non-surgical options can certainly help your breasts look larger than they are, but if you’re still unable to achieve the results you want and you’re ready for a more permanent solution, breast implants might be right for you.
  • You want more symmetrical breasts– It’s very common for women to have two different sized breasts. In most cases, the difference in breast size can be masked with clothes and clever bra tricks but if you suffer from a major difference and you’re ready for your breasts to match, breast implants can help.
  • You want to achieve more cleavage and larger breasts– Breast implants can make your breasts larger and/or achieve more cleavage. Whether you’re simply looking to achieve a fuller breast or you’re wanting to achieve a larger look, we can help find the right implant for you.

Your Breast Lift Questions Answered

Breast Lift in DCDo you suffer from less than perky breasts and want to make an improvement? You’re not alone. In fact, over 100,000 breast lift procedures were performed in 2019 to help women achieve the perky chest they desired. Several factors play into the need for a breast lift including age, pregnancy, and weight loss. Unfortunately for many patients, no amount of exercise, diet, or bra tricks seem to help and they’re left feeling unhappy with their breasts. If you are curious about giving your breasts a boost, we may be able to help.

Common breast lift questions

Q: Can I combine a breast lift with another procedure such as breast augmentation?

A: We often have patients come in who want to give their breasts a boost but also wish to add more fullness. It’s not uncommon at all for us to perform more than one procedure and combine a breast lift with a breast augmentation. We actually recommend this to patients who are considering both procedures as they can recover from both at once instead of having two separate recovery periods.

Q: What benefits can I expect from this procedure?

A: Women tend to lose breast volume over time due to aging, pregnancy, and weight loss. This procedure can help remove excess skin and make your breasts appear perkier and firmer giving you a more youthful appearance.

Q: What is the recovery period like?

A: Recovery periods can vary depending on the extent of your breast lift but most patients report that they’re back to normal after 1-2 weeks of recovery.

How to prepare for a breast lift consultation

During your appointment you should be prepared to discuss your goals for your procedure and tell us about your lifestyle.

This can affect the type of implant and implant size we use during your procedure, or what a fat grafting procedure would involve to achieve your desired size.

  • Your age and future plans– We recommend that you be at least 18 years of age before undergoing the procedure to ensure full development of your breasts.
