In breast augmentation I have chosen to spend time reviewing
photographs with patients to fully understand their expectation of size and
shape. Many times this simply raises
more questions. I will make measurements
and use the implant guides to allow the patient to understand exactly the sizes
that are reasonable for their body type and measurements.
Please find an experienced Board Certified Plastic Surgeon
and member of the Aesthetic Society using the Smart Beauty Guide. These Plastic Surgeons can guide you on all
aspects of facial surgery, breast augmentation and body procedures including
tummy tucks or mommy makeovers!
Most patients who have a saline implant deflation will opt to have both replaced as the "other" implant can theoretically deflate at any time which would result in another surgery. In my experience most patients with saline deflations opt for silicone replacement implants to avoid this problem in the future. If you want to have both implants replaced, this would be the time to change size of the implant. Hope this helps. Dean Vistnes.
Given your history of saline implant rupture, I agree with you that you would be a better candidate for form stable silicone implants. The risk of a rupture or deflation would be significantly lower than with saline implants. With regard to what size would be best for you, this can only be determined after a physical exam. Be certain to seek out a board certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in breast augmentation. Best wishes.
