Before your breast enlargement take some time to look at before and after pictures like the one above. These pictures will help you get an idea of the results you want. Take a few of these pictures to your consultation with Dr. Barone to ensure you are on the same page about your goals. Dr. Barone will discuss your desires and help you choose a breast implant, placement, and incision site to fit your needs.
What to Expect During Your Breast Enlargement Consultation
During your consultation with Dr. Barone you will make several choice about your San Antonio breast enlargement. Dr. Barone will give you information about implant type, incision site, implant placement, and implant size. Because every woman’s body is different you should pick what works best in your unique situation. For example, don’t pick an implant size just because that size looked great on your neighbor. Chest width, existing breast tissue, and fat distribution will all have an impact on your end result. Dr. Barone works closely with each patient to determine the best way to enhance their natural beauty.
Natural Looking Results From Your San Antonio Breast Enlargement
One of the most important choices you can make is breast implant type. Each breast implant type has a unique feel, rate of complications, and more. Dr. Barone tells us, “I feel very strongly that you have to expose patients to all the different types of implants and give them the positives and the negatives about all the implants and what the requirements are to maintain those implants.” Read below to learn about the different implant types offered at Barone Plastic Surgery.
- Saline Breast Implants: These implants are filled with saline, which is naturally absorbed by the body if the implant ruptures. As long as the implant stays intact there is no maintenance needed. However, Dr. Barone tells us saline breast implants feel unnatural. She says, “one of the things I hated and most women hated about the saline was the unnatural feel of the saline implants. They felt like balloons underneath the chest wall.”
- Silicone Gel Breast Implants: These implants are an alternative to saline that feels more natural. But what many women do not know is the FDA recommends an MRI every two years to check for a “silent rupture,” which is an out-of-pocket cost. Additionally, Dr. Barone typically recommends removing and replacing silicone gel breast implants after 10 years in order to avoid complications.
- IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant: This implant is filled with saline for peace of mind if it ruptures, however the internal structure gives it a feel similar to silicone gel breast implants. That means women get a natural looking result without the anxiety about the status of their implant. Dr. Barone tells us “I show patients every type of implant available. I show them saline. I show them silicone gel. And I show them the IDEAL IMPLANT. They get to feel and see each of their options, and almost exclusively these days, they pick the IDEAL IMPLANT. Women are very smart, they know what they want.”
Before your San Antonio breast enlargement take some time to research your breast implant options. At Dr. Barone’s office you will be able to see and feel each implant to help you make your choice. You will also receive statistics on complications such as implant rupture and capsular contracture so you will know how likely it is that you will need revision surgery in the future.
