Many women get breast implants to refine or improve the shape of their breasts. However, as with all cosmetic surgeries, they come with a cost – something we discuss in detail below.
What Types of Breast Implants are Available?
Dr. Greenberg’s patients at Winter Park Plastic Surgery consider two types of breast implants: saline and silicone gel.
Saline implants are silicone shells filled with saltwater. Many come pre-filled, allowing Dr. Greenbery to insert them immediately. Others require filling and sealing during the operation itself.
Silicone gel implants are silicone shells filled with a type of plastic gel called silicone. Women typically report that silicone gel implants feel more like natural breasts.
Average Cost of Breast Implants
The average cost of breast implants is $3,947, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Please note that this figure is only a part of the total price. It does not include any ancillary costs associated with the procedure, including prescription medications, anesthesia, or hospital facility costs.
Breast Augmentation Overview
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that adds volume to the breasts and enhances their symmetry. Before the procedure, Dr. Greenberg will consult with you about which implant option will be best for you (either saline or silicone). You will also discuss some of the aesthetic improvements that you would like to achieve. Breast augmentation allows you to increase the size of the breasts and improve things such as shape, projection, and cleavage.
Benefits of Breast Augmentation
Winter Park Plastic Surgery breast augmentation offers a host of benefits. These include:
For some women, living with small breasts can reduce confidence. Breast augmentation, however, can give you much larger and more attractive breasts with many of the characteristics you desire.
Breasts with more cleavage let you take advantage of clothes with plunging necklines or sheer sections with confidence.
Feel more youthful
Lastly, many women report that breast augmentation helps them to feel more youthful. Reversing sagging breasts or dealing with asymmetry can give you extra confidence to live your life as you please.
Am I a Candidate for Breast Augmentation?
You may be a good candidate for breast augmentation if:
- Your breasts are asymmetrical
- You have low self-worth because you feel your breasts are too small
- You want to improve breast projection from the chest
Because breast augmentation is a surgical procedure, candidates should be:
- In good physical health
- Have realistic expectations of what surgery can achieve
