You’ve done your homework, scheduled your consultation, and have arrived at ROXY Plastic Surgery for your appointment. Once your name is called and you take a seat in the consultation room, however, you find yourself staring at Dr. Grawe like a deer in headlights. What happened to all those questions you wanted to ask? They seemed to have fallen into some black hole…where you presume your knowledge of ninth grade Algebra also lives.
Don’t sweat it. Dr. Grawe will give you an in-depth rundown of everything you need to know. But, to help you out, here’s a look at the top three breast augmentation questions patients want answers to.
Unsure which breast implant type will deliver your idea of a killer bod? Questions surrounding implant type is a popular topic of discussion, so you’re not alone. Like most things in life, both choices have their pluses and minuses, and what it ultimately boils down to is the right fit for you.
Between the two options, silicone is by far the more popular choice. First, most patients enjoy the more natural look and feel of silicone implants compared to saline. Also, silicone implants tend to provide more volume in terms of how they look aesthetically. Plus, silicone implants are available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes in comparison to their saline counterparts.
But don’t rule out saline just yet. Saline implants are a great choice for patients who have an aversion to silicone or who are eager to make their girls pop but want a less invasive type of incision. Always talk over both options with your plastic surgeon to ensure you’ve selected the best choice for you and your body.
Like most patients, you’re probably thinking, “Hey doc, when will I be on my feet again?” Whether you’re fantasizing about the moment you’ll be able to slay that red dress in your closet or you need to plan your timeline for returning to your daily grind, recovery time is different for everyone. How quickly your body heals, the type of incision you get, and your implant size, can all impact your road to recovery.
To give you a rough idea, however, here’s what you can expect:
The shelf life of implants is a big question on everyone’s mind. Depending on the condition of your saline or silicone implants, your implants can last up to 20 years or more. There are a few reasons why patients elect to undergo surgery after a few years, including they’re looking to go bigger, they are disappointed in their results from another surgeon, they want to switch from saline to silicone, or they simply want their implants removed.
While having breast augmentation surgery means making multiple decisions, you’ll have the support of Dr. Grawe and the entire team of ROXY girls to help you along the way.
