Cosmetic Surgeon Tampa- Everything You need to Know About Breast Augmentation Tampa

Posted Jan 14 2012 5:37am


Before you undergo breast augmentation with breast implants, there are several decisions that need to be made.  One of the most important decisions about your breast implants has several options.  You will need to select the type of filling, texture, shape, and manufacturer.  Below is a guideline to three most important breast implant questions that you will have to make.

  1. Breast Implant Fill - The two most common breast implants used in Breast Augmentation Tampa are filled with silicone or saline.  Saline implants are more likely to cause visible rippling than silicone implants.  While silicone gel implants are prefilled, saline implants are filled at the time of surgery allowing the surgeon to make adjustments during the surgery. Overfilling the implants can cause too much firmness and not filling saline implants sufficiently can cause the implant to fold leading to a failure. If the breast implant ruptures, saline will be released and the empty implant can be removed and replaced.  Saline implants are generally firmer to the touch and are often described as appearing less natural than silicone breast implants.


  1. Breast Implant Size - Choosing the right implant size may seem complicated, but the decision is easier if you receive proper guidance from a plastic surgeon.   The two main factors that your breast size will depend on are: how big your chest is now and the implant size that you want.  In order to get the best breast augmentation results, it is best to let a Cosmetic Surgeon Tampa guide you.  Choosing your own breast implant volume is not the best decision because there are several variables such as ribcage, chest shape, and existing breast volume that may affect what a given breast implant will do for you.  Your cosmetic surgeon will recommend the right size breast implant for your body based on his years of training and experience.
  1. Breast Implant Shape - Choosing breast implant shape can be one of the toughest decisions to make since each manufacturer offers several styles.  However, the two main choices that you have are the actual breast implant shape and its profile.  The shape will either be round or anatomical (“tear-drop”) shaped.  Tear drop implants are meant to resemble the natural slope or a breast and have a textured surface to avoid the implant flipping over.  Round Implants have the most natural shape since they are placed beneath the muscle to create a natural appearance.
