    Know Before You Undergo: Breast Augmentation

    If you are considering having breast augmentation, you should then consider your two breast augmentation surgery options and talk to your plastic surgeon about the each to determine and which is going to be better for you.

    There are two different types of implants used when performing breast augmentation surgery; saline and silicone. The solutions used in each and how they are filled are what make them so different. Depending on which one you choose will also effect the way the incision is made as well how the entire procedure is played out.

    Saline-filled implants are placed within the body before being filled with a salt water solution. The size of the incision is much smaller than the implant itself and in comparison, much smaller than that of a silicone implant. Silicone implants are filled with silicone prior to inserting it into the breast cavity and therefore have a larger incision than a saline implant would. In turn though, a silicone implant is much less noticeable to the eye and to the touch. They are also a overall better decision for women who are without very much breast tissue to begin with.

    In 2006, there were 329,000 breast augmentation procedures performed in the U.S. Considering this number tell that there are a lot of women having plastic surgery/cosmetic surgery. It is important to go into any cosmetic surgery feeling that you know as much as you can about the particular procedure you’re about to undergo.
