Breast Implant Advice

Breast Implant Advice:
Before you bring your plastic surgeon a picture of the perfect breasts to copy, think about what you’re expecting… Rib cage size, breast width, height, weight.  and a dozen other factors will determine your ideal breast size. Bigger implants are not always better. If they are too large, they can permanently damage your breast tissue, cause rib pain, and disfigure and over stretch your breast tissues.

The most common location for breast implant incisions, with the lowest complication rate, may be in the fold under the breast (depending on your body). These incisions will appear to be a little red crease.

Lastly, be aware that your implants will not lift ; only a breast lift can do that. If you want natural-looking implants, stay away from breasts that have a defined 360 degree border. Avoid over sized implants that create a wide, bony gap between the breasts. If your implants are very large, your breasts will not naturally fall to the side when you lay on your back. You don’t want breasts that, in profile, look as full on top as on the bottom or implants that are so high that your nipples point downward. Talk to your plastic surgeon about creating the most natural look for you.
