Breast Augmentation Q & A
What is breast augmentation?
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that changes the size, shape, fullness, or positioning of your breasts. The process uses silicone or saline implants to augment your natural breast tissue, creating more appealing breast contouring that fits well with your body type.
Never before have there been so many options in breast augmentation. Dr. Brooks works with you to clearly define your treatment goals and choose the right course of action to make those goals a reality.
Why do women pursue breast augmentation?
The decision to pursue breast augmentation is a deeply personal one, and there are a number of factors that influence the decision. Some of the reasons women seek a breast augmentation include:
- To achieve larger breasts
- To address problems with symmetry
- To restore breast size and fullness after cancer treatment
- To reverse the effects of pregnancy and breastfeeding
As long as a woman pursues breast augmentation to move closer to her own aesthetic goals and not those of anyone else, there’s no reason that’s any more or less valid than another.
What types of breast implants are available?
You have a number of choices when it comes to the material, size, and shape of your new breast implants. There are pros and cons with each option, and Dr. Brooks takes the time to go over the benefits and advantages of each choice before you make your decision.
Silicone breast implants
Silicone breast implants are made of an outer shell of silicone filled with a thick silicone gel. They create a soft, natural-looking feel and shape. There is a risk of serious health issues if a silicone implant leaks, so you’ll need to come in for occasional exams to make sure your implants are in good shape.
Saline breast implants
Saline breast implants are made of a silicone shell filled with a sterile saline solution. They can be filled with more or less saline to alter the size and shape. If a saline implant leaks, the solution is absorbed and eliminated from your body without harm.
Dr. Brooks helps you decide which type of implant and which size or shape will help you get closer to your augmentation goals. You’ll have his support and guidance both before and after your procedure, which delivers great peace of mind.
