Many women who are unhappy with their breasts can have them augmented to their desired size, shape and contour thanks to a popular procedure known as breast augmentation. Residents of Chicago, IL can have this procedure carried out by our highly-qualified, board-certified plastic surgeon. We warmly invite you to learn more about breast augmentation, who can have it, and the types of implants that are available.
Understanding Breast Augmentation
This is a surgery done by a plastic surgeon. It typically involves the insertion of implants so that the breasts can be reshaped, given a different texture, or enlarged. It is an elective procedure, and it is only gaining in popularity in Chicago, IL and elsewhere.
This is a great way to get the kind of breasts you desire. And the procedure can be customized based on your wants and needs! Our plastic surgeon will guide you on what implants are suitable for you and as you make other important decisions regarding your procedure.
Who Should Have Breast Augmentation?
You are likely suited for breast augmentation if you are in good overall health and have realistic expectations regarding the procedure, the recovery, and the results. If your breasts have fully developed, and you would like them to be bigger, you could definitely benefit from this procedure. It’s also a great option for breasts that are asymmetrical.
Types of Breast Implants
Silicone and saline implants are the most popular FDA-approved implants. A silicone implant has a pre-filled silicone shell. The gel in the shell gives the implant a natural feel. A saline implant has an elastometer silicone shell that is inserted and then filled with a saline solution. The right implant type for you can ultimately be determined during a consultation with our surgeon in Chicago, IL.
