There are several reasons why you may not be satisfied with the size and shape of your breasts. Whether due to natural aging, pregnancy or weight loss, the breasts can lose volume over time and appear to sag from the chest. Perhaps your breasts have never had the ideal aesthetic and look disproportionate from the rest of your body or you have undergone mastectomy and are ready to reconstruct one or both breasts. Either circumstance can warrant your desire for breast augmentation.
Having a cosmetic or emotional concern about your breasts is usually a sign that you would benefit from surgical breast enhancement, and you have a variety of options to choose from to achieve your desired appearance. Many women opt for breast augmentation using breast implants, which enhances the position and fullness of the breasts using implants, and for women who have lost one or both breasts due to mastectomy or lumpectomy, restoring the breasts can help them regain their femininity.* Dr. Carl Williams has performed many breast reconstruction procedures that include augmentation, and he can help you determine whether surgical enhancement is right for you during a personal consultation.
Choosing the Right Technique
Each patient varies regarding their body composition, skin type, and aesthetic goals. It’s important for Dr. Williams to examine your body contour so that he can choose the surgical technique that will produce natural and beautiful results.* Determining the best methods to use during your procedure takes place during a consultation in his office, where you can decide whether surgery will give you the results you are looking for.
You have several avenues to consider when it comes to breast augmentation. You and Dr. Williams will choose the size, shape, and material of the implant as well as the proper incision and implant placement. Creating a particular treatment plan that aligns with your unique needs will ensure you receive the best possible outcome.
Breast implants contain either a sterile saline solution or silicone gel. The implant you choose depends mostly on how you expect your breasts to feel once breast augmentation is complete along with your budgetary constraints. Dr. Williams will discuss the differences between both implants and help you determine which one will produce the ideal aesthetic.
You will also have to determine the shape of your implant, which coincides with your cosmetic goals. Implants can form a round shape or take on a tear-drop appearance; both create specific contours that control the shape of your breasts. While some patients prefer the natural look of a tear-drop implant, others desire fullness at the top and bottom of their breasts and opt for a round implant. Dr. Williams may have you try on various implants so that you can see first hand which shape looks more appealing.
Other considerations include the type of incision Dr. Williams uses to insert the implant along with where in the breast he places it. This depends particularly on the implant you choose as well as your body composition and the amount of volume present in your natural breasts. Dr. Williams can make an incision either around the areola, underneath the breast or in the underarm, and he can place implants either under the pectoral muscle, behind the breast tissue or over the pectoral muscle.
During your consultation, Dr. Williams can help you determine which technique is right for you; however, all incisions are made to look inconspicuous, and implants are placed to ensure you experience as little downtime as possible.
