All about breast augmentation

The first question that is usually asked when the topic is breast implants in New Jersey is; “who is a good candidate for the procedure?” The truth is, any healthy woman who wishes to enhance the size and shape of her breasts is a good candidate. The best candidates however are those who are healthy and don’t smoke and are close to or at their ideal weight. A great candidate is also one who has enough natural breast tissue to completely cover the larger breast.

Rarely does the procedure result in any complications but when there are complications they usually include loss of sensation, asymmetry, infection, bruising and rupture of the implant. When the implant that is chosen is tear drop in shape there is always a slight risk that the implant will rotate into an awkward position, giving the breast a misshapen look.

Recovery time:

This is always a concern because most of the women who undergo breast implants in New Jersey hold a job and time away from work is an important consideration. Recovery time is difficult to forecast because there are a number of options when it comes to the location of the incision and the placement of the implant, either under or over the pectoral muscle. Generally speaking, two days is sufficient following the operation which should then be followed by a few extra days with limited activity. Well within a week most patients can be back on the job although there may be some redness, tenderness and swelling for up to a month.

Implant types:

Implants can have a smooth surface or a slightly textured surface. Textured implants have a slightly rough surface which most surgeons prefer as there is a belief that a slightly textured surface on the implant will lessen the risk of capsular contracture which is a hardening of the breast. The implant shape can either be completely round or tear drop shaped. Many women prefer the tear drop shape as it closer mimics the shape of a natural breast.

The main consideration is the filling material. Silicone filled implants are more natural feeling and although after many years of study no adverse health effects have ever been proven, many women still prefer saline filled implants as they still harbor doubts.
