Woman often feel more attractive and confident when they have a more prominent physique. Those who are displeased with the proportions of their chest often seek out breast augmentation, a proce-dure that literally enlarges the breasts with implants. With refined skills and a kind demeanor, elite plastic surgeon Dr. David K. Funt has a well-earned reputation for helping his patients to attain the breasts of their dreams.
Breast Augmentation Benefits
Women may choose to enlarge the size of their chests for a variety of reasons. Some of the reasons that Dr. Funt’s patients have cited for loving their breast augmentation include:
- A curvy, more feminine physique
- An ability to wear new clothing that did not fit as well on their previous body shape
- Improved self-esteem
- Better symmetry between the breasts
- New social and career opportunities
Which Breast Implant Type is Best for You?
Dr. Funt offers three main types of implants in order to accommodate his patients’ specific wishes. They are:
Saline implants feature sterilized salt water at the center of a silicone shell. Since these implants can be inserted empty and filled with salt water later, Dr. Funt can make smaller incisions, leaving less con-spicuous scarring. In the extremely rare case that an implant ruptures, your body will expel the saline solution without suffering health consequences.
Silicone implants consist of a gel substance between a silicone shell. Compared to the other im-plant options, they most closely imitate breast tissue in texture, thereby providing the most natu-ral feel. As a trade-off, the incisions for these implants must be somewhat larger than for saline implants because they are put into the body at full size.
Also known as form-stable implants, this newer advancement in implants mimics a teardrop shape. As opposed to the traditional options, teardrop implants better recreates the natural shape of young, perky breasts. Studies have found that these implants are also the least likely to rup-ture.
At your consultation, you will discuss all of the options with Dr. Funt to determine what size, shape and material will not only best create your desired aesthetic, but also make you feel the most comfortable.
