Your Breast Implant Options
Finding the best breast implants for your aesthetic goals means learning about your options. Patients have several options in terms of type, size, profile, texture, and shape.
Type refers to an implant’s filling. Three options are available: saline breast implants, silicone breast implants, and gummy bear implants. Saline implants are filled with sterile saltwater, whereas silicone and gummy bear breast implants are filled with silicone gel.
Gummy bear breast implants are a very popular option. Gummy bear implants are a type of Natrelle implant manufactured by Allergan. They are filled with a highly cohesive gel, which serves to prevent leaks in the event of an implant rupture. Because the gel stays in the breast implant shell, the implants retain their form, which has earned them the name “form-stable implants.”
In terms of size, patients can benefit from large breast implants or small breast implants depending on their frame and body proportions. Profile refers to an implant’s degree of projection from the chest wall, and low, moderate, and high-profile breast implants are available.
Patients can choose between round and anatomical breast implants and between smooth and textured implants, and all of these characteristics offer their benefits and drawbacks. They will all be discussed during your breast augmentation consultation in Baton Rouge. We have a wide range of implant types and sizes on-site at all times.
Recovering from Breast Augmentation Surgery
Typical augmentation procedures are less than one hour. Recovery for most patients is very manageable and most patients returned to casual daily (or limited work) activities within a week.
Swelling, bruising, and discomfort are common following breast augmentation surgery. A special surgical bra will need to be worn, which will provide additional support during the recovery period. Pain following breast augmentation surgery is minimal.
Throughout this process, we hold you, our patient, at the center of our practice and we want to ensure your happiness throughout. We invite you to let us know how we are doing.
