Breast augmentation is one of the most common plastic surgical procedures. Whether due to lack of adequate development, loss of volume due to pregnancy, or the natural aging process a breast augmentation procedure can enhance or restore a woman’s breast volume and shape.
Considerations when choosing Implants:
- Implant Size: Dr. Antimarino takes into consideration many important elements when choosing an implant such as a patient’s activity level, height, weight and body type. There are many different sizes and shapes of implants that may be used to best enhance a woman to reach her desired outcome. Furthermore, a well-proportioned breast will give balance and create curves that enhance a woman’s shape.
- Implants: There are two main types of implants available. These include silicone and saline. A consultation with Dr. Antimarino will best provide you with necessary information to determine the correct implant for you and ultimately increase your comfort level with the procedure.
- Position: Implants can be placed above and below the muscle. Dr. Antimarino prefers the sub-muscular placement of the implant as it has proven to have less complications and generally improved surveillance for breast cancer in this position.
