More women are opting to have breast augmentation to improve their appearance, so you may wonder if one of these cosmetic procedures is right for you. For most breast augmentation procedures, you will require an implant in each breast that will change the size or shape of the breast. Our plastic surgeon may also need to perform other procedures to change the appearance of your breasts. Breast augmentation can be performed during a Mommy Makeover procedure at Cosmetic Surgery of DFW. Dustin C. Derrick, MD is our lead plastic surgeon for Mommy Makeovers in Fort Worth, TX.
Implants are available in a variety of sizes and shapes, and our surgeon can offer advice concerning the type that is best for your body. There are also implants that are made from different types of materials, and you should consider the benefits of each type before making a decision. Dr. Derrick can also discuss the pros and cons with you so you can make an informed decision with the help of our professionals.
Schedule an Examination
A great surgeon will examine your breasts to make a decision about implants for your body. Most women have breast sizes that are different, but with an implant procedure, it is possible to create an asymmetrical appearance. A breast implant may have saline, silicone or another type of soft substance inside a durable plastic material. Recent studies reveal that the average breast implants will last up to 12 years, so that means that you will need to have the devices replaced eventually.
The female body changes rapidly over 12 years, so you may gain or lose weight, especially if you experience pregnancies or go through menopause. Some women choose a breast augmentation after completing all of their pregnancies so that the breasts are more likely to remain in the same condition for 12 years. In addition, you may worry about what will happen during a pregnancy when you do have implants or if you choose to breast-feed an infant. These are valid concerns, and you should consider these issues before undergoing breast augmentation.
