Whether due to heredity, weight loss, or pregnancy and breast feeding, small breasts plague women of all ages. Though padded and push up bras can help clothes fit and look better, they are not a real solution. Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that can permanently enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breasts through the use of either silicone or saline implants.
Though they are both encased in an outer silicone shell, the substances within are what make the two types of implants different from one another, and each offers different advantages for patients to consider. Though many patients prefer silicone gel implants for their natural look and feel, still many others prefer implants filled with a sterile saline solution. If you are considering breast augmentation in Okemos or the local area, you will have the opportunity to see and touch each type of implant during your complimentary consultation with Dr. Lee H Colony prior to surgery. Examining each type of implant and discussing the pros and cons of each with Dr. Colony will allow you to weigh your options more carefully and make an informed decision that you feel is best for you. During your consultation you will also be able to discuss your desired cup size.
On the day of your procedure, you will be administered anesthesia – either general or intravenous sedation based on your own personal preference. The surgery itself is fairly straightforward. Dr. Colony will make small incisions that will allow him to place your implants. If you choose silicone implants, they will be per-filled. Saline implants are placed first and then filled. Rest and time off of work is required following breast augmentation surgery to help facilitate a safe recovery. Be sure to follow all of Dr. Colony’s directions carefully.
