If you don’t remember your “why” for doing something, you may back out of a decision or let others’ opinions of what you should do get in the way of what is right for you. If you have been considering a potentially life-changing and confidence boosting procedure like breast augmentation, it’s a decision that should be made by you and not anyone else. Read on for information that may help you know what to do when it comes to your personal breast augmentation decisions.
Las Vegas Breast Augmentation: Figuring Out Your “Why”
With such busy lives and so much going on in the world, making life-changing decisions can be difficult. Once you know your reason for breast augmentation, stick with it. Any related decisions afterward will be much simpler when you have a reason you believe in. Some of the reasons for breast surgery are listed below.
- A desire to enhance breast size and volume (breast implant)
- Treating complications resulting from macromastia (breast reduction)
- Addressing and resolving the problem of sagging breasts (breast lift)
- Improving the results of previous breast surgery (breast revision)
- Rebuilding authentic-looking breasts with surgery after mastectomy, double mastectomy, or radiation therapy (breast reconstruction)

Why You Can Trust Dr. Richards
A board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Richards was trained in advanced cosmetic plastic surgery at the prestigious Cleveland Clinic.

His paper, describing a technique that dramatically reduces pain after breast augmentation, was published in the distinguished national Aesthetic Surgery Journal and has been cited by other breast surgery articles. He also received the top resident research award for studying data at his institution to find patterns that would improve patient care.
Having a strong humanitarian commitment, Dr. Richards has volunteered his time performing cleft lip and palate repairs in Uganda, Africa. After spending 14 years of education and training in the nation’s best plastic surgery centers, Dr. Richards brought his family to the warm weather of the southwest-Las Vegas.
Breast augmentation technology has come a long way over the years, and Dr. Richards now offers the new IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants. With the growing number of implant options and cosmetic decisions one can make, it may feel overwhelming to decide everything on your own. That’s why it’s so important to select a plastic surgeon who will discuss with you thoroughly your unique cosmetic goals and objectives.
Figuring Out Your “What”: Types of Implants
Once you feel confident with the reason for your breast augmentation, you can start making decisions about what you want. The type of implant you select will depend on personal preference, your body shape and frame, and potential risk factors that you may have not yet considered. When you visit Dr. Richards’ office, you will have the opportunity to feel the types of implants available to you, view the breast implants before and after photos, discuss any concerns, and decide which implant you prefer.
- Saline has a soft shell and gives a projected look. If the implant is ruptured, you will be able to immediately see the deflation, and your body will absorb the salt water inside.
- Silicone Gel has a more realistic feel than saline. In the case of rupture, an MRI is usually required to detect a leak.
- IDEAL IMPLANT is the best of both worlds. While it has a realistic feel and projected look, it does not require an MRI to detect a leak–women can tell just by looking in the mirror that their implant is intact.
You can also get an idea of what you want by viewing before and after pictures of other procedures and reading about their experiences like the real-life example below.
