Choosing Your Breast Implant
The FDA recently approved a new generation of silicone gel-filled breast implants, so now women have a choice between silicone gel and saline breast implants. A variety of implant shapes are available, depending on your preference. Your plastic surgeon at FACESplusTM will discuss with you the choice of implant and what size changes are possible for your body structure. There are a number of areas where your plastic surgeon can make an incision to insert the breast implants:
- In the crease underneath your breast
- Along the lower edge of your areola
- In your axilla or armpit
What to Expect During Recovery from Breast Augmentation? A surgical dressing will protect your incisions. You will experience some swelling and bruising for several days after the breast augmentation surgery. The surgeon will also prescribe pain medication to ease any discomfort. After healing, your new breasts will appear natural and enhanced.
The FDA recently approved a new generation of silicone gel filled breast implants for women who are at least 22 years old. This gives women seeking breast augmentation choices in breast implant type as well as the profile of the implant.
