What questions should I be asking about Breast Augmentation?

Will my friends and family look at me differently? These are all personal questions. But rest assured, the popularity and social acceptance of Breast Augmentation means women feel more comfortable about the choice and will more readily share their decision and experience with friends, family and coworkers.

What are the different types of Breast Augmentation surgery?
There are many procedures for Breast Augmentation surgery and Esprit Cosmetic Surgeons are experts in each. The most appropriate solution is dependent on a number of factors.
Breast Augmentation with Implants:The most well-known augmentation procedure where saline or silicone gel implants are surgically placed.
Breast Augmentation with Fat Grafting: Augmentation which uses fat from another area of the body; typically the stomach, flanks or thighs.
Breast Implants Plus Fat Grafting: Augmentation procedure which combines both saline or silicone gel implants with transfer of fat from another area.
Breast Lift Plus Fat Grafting: Provides additional volume to the breast area, with greater fullness in the upper portion and cleavage of breast.
What decisions will I be making before Breast Augmentation surgery?
You should know that there are a number of important decisions to make before embarking on Breast Augmentation surgery, including the issues related to your medical history, your financial stability, your emotional state, and the possible impacts that surgery can have on work and family.
There are some general technical points we will discuss together to consider and ensuring a successful Breast Augmentation:
- Breast implant insertion site: Axillary or breast fold?
- Breast implant position: Above or under the pectoralis major muscle?
- Breast implant type: Saline or silicone gel?
- Breast implant surface: Smooth or textured shell surface?
- Breast implant shape: Round or teardrop?
- Breast implant projection: Low, moderate or high-profile projection?
- Breast implant volume: How big, how small?
- Breast implant dimensions: How wide and how projecting?
We don’t expect you to make these decisions alone, nor do we expect you to be able answer these questions on your own. During your initial consultation, our staff will review all necessary information with you and help you become informed and confident in your choice. Learn more
Am I a candidate for Breast Augmentation surgery?
You must be 18 years of age or older and in good physical and emotional health. You should have completed your last pregnancy (and nursing) at least three to six months prior to surgery. We suggest you defer Breast Augmentation if you plan to become pregnant within 1-2 years of surgery.
Above all, it is necessary that your expectations are realistic. You must be honest with yourself in terms of how far surgery can go to improve the aesthetics of your breasts, your body image and your life. While surgery is effective, it simply can’t do everything. And while it is safe, you should have a trusted support person to help you through the entire surgical process and to assist you during the first 24 hours after surgery.
“The staff made me feel so comfortable and so excited to finally go ahead with this procedure. Dr. Connall couldn’t have been more organized and intelligent regarding all of my procedural questions. His level of experience made me so confident in him. Since the procedure I have gained a confidence I never thought possible and I could not thank Dr. Connall and his staff enough. This was such a great experience!” JAMIE, PORTLAND
