What Is A Breast Augmentation?
There are two types of breast augmentation techniques, one uses a fat transfer while the other uses breast implants. Your surgeon can discuss these two procedures with you and will recommend which will be best for your specific needs.
Breast implant surgery is a commonly performed procedure that is highly customizable for patients. RealSelf shows that breast augmentation procedures have a 97% worth-it rating from previous patients who have undergone the procedure.
What Are The Different Types Of Breast Implants?
Patients can individualize their breast augmentation procedure by choosing the size, shape, projection and feel of their breast implants. During your consultation, Dr. Liland will discuss and assess your individual goals and help recommend the most suitable size and shape of implants for your body type. One of the main decisions to make is the material of the breast implants as this has the potential to impact the feel, cost, longevity, and surgical technique. The three main implant types include:
These implants are the cheapest and the only type that patients aged between 18 and 21 can have inserted. The implant has a shell made out of silicone which is inserted into the breast before being filled with a saltwater solution. If the implant ruptures this saltwater solution would be absorbed by the body which does not pose any health threats but will cause the implant to visibly deflate. The implant shell can be removed and then new implants can be inserted.
These implants can only be inserted in patients who are aged 21 or older since the FDA-approved age is 21. These implants are more expensive than saline implants and are filled with silicone rather than a saltwater solution. This impacts the feel of the implant and is thought to be more similar to actual breast tissue. If these implants rupture they also do not pose any risk to a patient’s health. The silicone is not absorbed by the body it instead will leak from the implant and remain in the breast. This is why it is harder for patients to know when a silicone implant has ruptured as the implant will not deflate. Regular breast screenings are conducted for patients with silicone breast implants so that it can be determined if an implant has ruptured and needs replacing.
Gummy Bear Implants
Since gummy bear implants are a type of silicone breast implant they also require regular breast screenings to determine if the implants have ruptured as again these implants would not deflate. Gummy bear implants are more expensive than regular silicone implants but are said to have the most natural feel.
How Much Does A Breast Augmentation Cost In Johnson County, Texas?
The cost of a breast augmentation procedure is one of the main concerns for patients as the vast majority of patients have to fund the entire procedure themselves. This is because breast augmentation procedures are rarely covered by insurance policies as they are performed to address aesthetic concerns. There are some circumstances in which insurance companies will help fund the cost of a breast augmentation procedure but you would need to contact your provider to make sure what your policy covers. Patients who have suffered from an illness or disease which has impacted their breasts are patients who may qualify for funding from their insurance.
The average cost of a breast augmentation in the United States according to Realself is over $6,500. This cost will significantly vary depending on the type of breast implant chosen and the expertise of your surgeon. For more information on the factors which impact the price of a breast augmentation as well as advice on financing the procedure you can read our blog ‘How Much Does A Breast Augmentation Cost In Dallas, Texas?‘ To find out the cost of the breast augmentation procedure you wish to undergo you should book a consultation with a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon.
How Long Do Breast Implants Last?
There is no way to guarantee how long your breast implants will last as some patients have issues which means their implants only last a couple of years, while other patients have their implants in place for 20 years without any problems. The average time an implant lasts for most patients is said to be around 10 to 15 years but there are various factors that can require implants to be removed sooner including:
Implant rupture- one of the main reasons implants need to be removed and replaced is because they have ruptured and the filling of the implant has either been absorbed or leaked into the breast. This is why regular breast screenings are recommended so that patients can discover if their silicone implants have leaked and need replacing.
Capsular Contracture- there is a risk of a capsule forming around the implant which is known as capsular contracture. This leads to pain as well as aesthetic changes to the breasts which means the implants may need removing and replacing. For more information on Capsular Contracture and its symptoms and treatments, you can view our webpage.
Change of mind- frequently patients choose to have their breast implants removed even if there is no issue. Many patients change their minds about the type of implant they chose and desire a different size, shape, or implant type. Some patients also decide they no longer desire implants and so have them removed and not replaced. This is why it is important to spend time thinking about your procedure and receive advice from a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon who specializes in breast procedures so you can make an informed decision.
