Breast Augmentation Research: 3 Questions To Consider

It is important to research your procedure before any major surgery—and breast augmentation is no exception. Sometimes, our Brooklyn and Staten Island patients feel overwhelmed by the process, though. What’s the best way to sift through so much information on the internet?

Knowing the right questions to ask is half the battle when researching a procedure. In this blog post, we’ll highlight some useful topics to help guide their breast augmentation research.

What Are My Breast Implant Options?

Breast augmentation isn’t a one-size-fits-all procedure. Instead, the surgery is customized to best suit the patient’s needs. Different factors, such as implant size, shape, or material, can significantly change the look of your results.  

When starting your research, we recommend comparing saline vs. silicone implants, considering whether you are looking for enhanced cleavage (round implants) or implants that mimic the natural teardrop slope of your breasts (anatomical implants).

In addition, some implants are better suited to certain body types or profiles that are different from yours. When looking at breast augmentation before-and-after photos, remember that those specific features may not create the exact same results for you. Learning about your different implant options (and seeing how they look on patients with similar builds to you) can help you determine what will work best for your shape.

What Will I Look Like After Breast Augmentation?

Before your consultation, take a moment to think about the overall look you want to achieve. Define your goals and ideal breast augmentation results. This will be helpful when discussing incision details and implant options with your surgeon. They will be able to guide you toward choices that will achieve the look you truly want.

Reference photos can be useful for describing the overall aesthetic you’re looking for. Although individual results will vary, understanding where you want to add volume, whether you may be a good candidate to add a breast lift to your procedure, and how you want to look from all angles can help you choose the implants that are right for you.

What Should I Wear After Breast Augmentation?

When your body changes, so do your clothing options. Women with larger breasts sometimes struggle with certain outfits or types of shirts. Those who prefer to dress modestly might benefit from choosing subtle implants that create a more natural-looking profile. Patients who want to fill out their blouses and bikinis better may find that larger implants that increase their upper pole fullness (cleavage) will help them achieve their desired look.

Put serious thought into the kinds of clothing you want to wear after your breast augmentation. This clarity will help your surgeon create results that make you feel comfortable and confident.

How Long Do Breast Implants Last?

In the end, breast augmentation is a long-term investment, with implants lasting 10+ years before needing to be replaced. Be realistic about the kind of life you want to live after surgery and how your preferences may change over time.

For example, those who enjoy running or swimming may want a slightly smaller cup size to accommodate their active lifestyles. Think about your day to day activities and how they may be affected by your implant decision. 

As long as you are open and honest with your surgeon, you can work together to create a body that you truly love. And, when it comes time for revision surgery, you can make whatever adjustments you need to continue enjoying your results.
