The plastic surgery team at The Ottawa Clinic highlights five factors patients undergoing breast augmentation should consider about their breast implants.
Ottawa, ON–Every year, breast augmentation remains one of the most sought after plastic surgery procedures. With so many women interested in the cosmetic enhancement surgery, breast implant companies like Allergan and Mentor continue to develop a wide range of implant varieties to suit women of all body types.
To help patients make an informed decision about their procedure, the plastic surgeons at The Ottawa Clinic educate them on the different implant characteristics and how each can affect their outcome. Among the many factors that should be considered prior to breast augmentation, the plastic surgeons highlight five details, in particular, that can affect the final results:
- Type: saline or silicone
- Size: a wide variety
- Shape: round or teardrop-shaped
- Profile: high, moderate, or low
- Placement: over or under the muscle
While every implant option has the potential to provide beautiful, natural-looking results, the surgeons explain that to choose the right breast implants for each patient, they must first examine the patient’s anatomy and assess their aesthetic goals. By doing so, they can create an individualised treatment plan that can best help the patient achieve their ideal outcome.
Although it can be helpful to understand what different implant options can offer, ultimately, the Ottawa surgeons emphasise that patients should prioritise the expertise of the surgeon they select. By finding an experienced, qualified professional, the team says patients are more likely to achieve successful results and a lowered risk of complications.
