Decisions about your breast augmentation
Dr. Lacerna will emphasize the importance of all decisions during your initial consultation. Prior to breast enhancement surgery, Dr. Lacerna will discuss topics such as the incision to be used and whether to place the breast implant beneath the muscle of the chest wall as well as the breast tissue.
One of the most important decisions relates to the choice of the breast implants. The first decision which most determines the naturalness of the ultimate look, continues to be the size of the breast implant. The use of breast implant sizers as well as chest and breast measurements help identify the appropriate profile and volume of the breast implant.
Women will also need to decide if they will combine their breast augmentation with a breast lift, for a youthful look.
Your new look!
For many women, the result of breast augmentation can be satisfying, even exhilarating, as they learn to appreciate their fuller appearance.
Even if you believe your implants are functioning well, it is important that you follow-up as directed with your plastic surgeon to assess the condition of your breast implants. In addition, whether you choose to have breast implants or not, it is essential to your health that you practice a monthly breast self-exam and schedule regular diagnostic breast screenings.
Your decision to have breast augmentation is a highly personal one that not everyone will understand. The important thing is how you feel about it. If you've met your goals, then your surgery is a success.
