Please read "Choosing Your Breast Implant" by Judy Brandy-Yoho for more detail, as well as the summary below.
When planning breast augmentation, breast implants (enlargement) in the Los Angeles or Fresno, Bakersfield areas, there are several decisions you'll be making. We will help you fully understand the following breast implantation issues when you come in for your consultation.
Two companies currently make breast implants in the U.S., and their implant shapes aren't exactly the same. We will choose your implant based on your chest size, breast shape, and individual goals. Dr. Yoho offers both silicone and saline (salt water) implants. Saline is less expensive, but many women believe that silicone is softer and more natural. Silicone implants are available for our Bakersfield, Simi Valley, and Los Angeles breast enlargement patients, but some guidelines must be followed.
Breast Enlargement Considerations
In addition to implant type, there are many other choices that go into creating an attractive breast augmentation result, including:
Preparing for Your Breast Enhancement Procedure
We will show you how the saline implant that's flat like a taco can be rolled up like a taquito and inserted through a tiny passageway from the belly button up under the breast. It's then inflated through a removable tube. Size difference in breasts can be adjusted by filling the implants a bit more or less. The silicone ones, on the other hand, must be squeezed in through a bigger hole and their size is fixed at the time of manufacture. If you have differently sized breasts, we must buy the exact silicone size prior to the procedure.
We have to examine your breasts carefully to see how they will respond to implants, and determine particularly how close they match. Remember, they are sisters, not twins. Although we'll try to match them, the more different they are before surgery, the more different they will be after.
If our approach to breast enhancement makes sense to you, we invite you to request a free consultation with Dr. Yoho today.
