4 Important Considerations for Women Considering Breast Augmentation

Plastic Surgeon Scottsdale

Breast augmentation is an incredibly popular cosmetic surgery procedure that has enjoyed many advancements in techniques. Because of this, women planning for this procedure have several options to weigh. Continue reading to learn 4 factors for you to think about when considering breast augmentation.

1. Surgical Incision
Although this type of procedure is popular and continues to grow in use, it’s common for women to want to keep their surgery private. For this reason, it’s important to consider what type of surgical incision you would prefer. Advancements in techniques used for breast augmentation surgery have helped minimize scars for many patients, and Dr. Geoghegan will discuss your options with you to help you determine which incision is most in line with your desired outcome.

2. Implant Type
When it comes to breast augmentation, one of the biggest decisions that you need to make is between saline or silicone implants. Saline breast implants can be the ideal choice for individuals who wish to have a slightly smaller incision and have enough existing breast tissue to better hide an implant as saline has a higher risk of rippling and wrinkling. However, silicone implants are the most popular choice due to their softer, lighter, and more natural feel.

3. Implant Size
Selecting an implant size is a decision that typically gives patients the most anxiety. Dr. Geoghegan can provide you with expert advice regarding the ideal implant size for your goals. Also, during your consultation, Dr. Geoghegan will take measurements and will have you try on implant sizes and view 3D Vectra imaging technology to gain better insight into which implant size you would prefer.

4. Plastic Surgeon
The final and most important consideration for women who wish to take advantage of breast augmentation is their choice of plastic surgeon. Your surgeon should be an ASPS member and be certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Also, ask to look at examples of previous surgeries that the surgeon has performed, and choose a doctor you are confident will provide you with your desired results.
