Natural Look Through Surgical Technique
Once you understand your surgeon’s favored surgical technique, you’ll see how they go about creating natural-looking breasts for their patients regardless of size. Using an areolar incision or the fold incision allows them excellent access to the breast for making a pocket and maneuvering the implant into perfect position. They also favor implanting behind the pectoral muscle, ensuring the resized breast slopes gently and normally away from the chest wall.
Your Body, Your Choice
Your body and its attributes will influence what size breasts you choose. Many small-framed women decide to go no bigger than a C cup size to look like they could have been born with their new breasts. Skin tone is also a factor. Patients with very tight skin may not find large implants fit very well. The doctors are experienced in evaluating body and skin types and will help you understand how these factors may come into play for you.
What if your true desire is to “go big?” If this is the case, don’t hesitate for a moment to bring it up with your surgeon. After all, you’ve made the decision to have augmentation; you should have the breasts you want to have.
Since our surgeons’ surgical techniques are designed to create natural-looking breasts, many people can still choose large implants with beautiful results. What’s more, the surgeons are two of only 15 physicians in the U.S. who can offer some of their patients the opportunity to participate in FDA-sanctioned trials of high strength silicone gel breast implants commonly referred to as “gummy bear” implants. Filled with a cohesive gel that looks and feels like normal breast tissue, these particular implants can range up to DDD in size.
The Ins and Outs of Breast Implants
Relating the size of an implant to a new breast size for you can be tricky. Implant manufacturers describe the size (volume) of their products in cc’s, or cubic centimeters. That’s not a metric most of us use in our daily lives. And, let’s face it, bra cup sizes aren’t exactly standard. So telling your surgeon you want to be a “C” cup or a “D” cup is just the start of the discussion.
That’s why the staff at Marina Plastic Surgery Associates will advise you to bring photos along with you to your consultation. Showing your doctor what you want to look like and being ready for an open two-way conversation will make all the difference. But don’t worry if you don’t have any photos. Dr. Stevens and Dr. Macias have thousands of photos for you to look through in both offices.
