Three Questions Women Should Ask Prior To Breast Augmentation in California
I’ve performed thousands of cosmetic procedures in my career, but I’ve made a point to educate each and every one my patients about their options, both surgical and non surgical. One of the most requested procedures I encounter at our Inland Cosmetic Surgery practice is the breast augmentation in California.
I know that, nationwide, over a quarter million breast augmentation surgeries are performed, as reported by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery. A breast augmentation, also known as mammoplasty, is a very personal, private decision that should be made after careful consideration. My role is not only as your breast augmentation surgeon, but to inform you about the various benefits, risks, and options you need to consider.
Most women come to Inland Cosmetic Surgery knowing that their primary goal is to increase their overall breast size. Others seek a breast augmentation in California in order to correct a physical irregularity or asymmetry in the breasts, areolae, or nipples. Regardless of your reasons for getting a breast augmentation, it’s a good idea to do as much independent research as possible to make the most of your consultation with me.
Three important questions women should ask themselves about breast augmentation in California:
1. What size breasts do I want?
I work with each of my breast augmentation patients to help them determine what size will bring them the best results for their body proportions. I also consider various physical factors, including the amount of skin on their breasts that can safely support their new size.
2. Do I want silicone- or saline-filled breast implants? Each type of breast implant has its advantages. Saline-filled implants are less expensive and typically require a smaller incision for implantation. Silicone-filled implants last longer, and move and feel more like natural breast tissue.
3. Which breast augmentation technique would I be most comfortable with? I will explain the different techniques and their possible outcomes. I specialize in a technique called “Transumbilical Breast Augmentation (TUBA),” which results in no visible scarring, reduced risk of infection, and less impact to nerves especially around the nipples.
