Dr. Joseph Fata believes that your breast augmentation should be all about you. Your goals, your desires, your safety. That’s why he’ll present you with a wide range of options for your breast implants. With these options you and Dr. Fata will be able to customize your augmentation experience. The end result will be breast implants that will serve to help you achieve your personal cosmetic objectives. Those choices include:
- Implant type: One of your primary choices will be between saline breast implants and silicone breast implants. Each offers their own set of advantages; silicone implants are softer and present a more natural shape, while saline implants require smaller incisions and a reduced recovery time.
- Incision placement: You will have four options for incision placement: under the breast fold, along the skin of your areola, along the armpit and the fold of the belly button. Again, each option has certain trade-offs, so it’s important you have a clear sense of your own priorities before getting breast implants.
- Breast implant placement: When considering breast implant placement you will have three choices: under the pectoral muscle, above the muscle and a hybrid approach in which a part of the implant is under the muscle and a part is above.
You won’t have to make these choices alone. Dr. Fata will walk you through the ramifications of each decision so that you can make the choices that are right for your specific needs.
