Honolulu Liposuction and Breast Augmentation Options Randy Wong, MD on 19 Aug 2016
Every woman has her own idea about the ideal size of her overall body, and her breasts in particular. Unfortunately, this is often not the size they have naturally been given. Honolulu Plastic surgery provides top of the line breast augmentation in Honolulu. In addition to breast enhancement surgery, surgeons at this center are also recognized for tummy tuck in Honolulu and liposuction in Honolulu. These procedures can be combined to create the patient’s dream body size and shape!
One of the biggest and most difficult decisions for a plastic surgery candidate is about the change in breast size. Though many women may desire a change, some may feel intimidated about the process or have unanswered questions regarding what type of surgery to have. It is recommended that all candidates for breast augmentation surgery do some research before consulting with a surgeon. Think about your desired end results before consulting with a surgeon, so you can have a collaborative consultation where your needs will be met.
There are two major types of breast implants: saline water and silicone gel. In addition to filler types, there are also texture options. Generally, texture can be either smooth or textured. Water implants tend to feel similar to a water balloon whereas a silicone implant may feel more natural. Regarding texture, a smooth type is more susceptible to “capsular contraption”, or popping, than a textured implant. More important than these factors, however, is the woman’s own personal anatomy and the type of implant that will best form to their body. Factors such as chest width and skin elasticity will be important deciding components in choosing breast implant types. Surgeons will help you assess your anatomy to find a size, shape, and texture that will be most beneficial for your body.
When considering size, surgeons say it is actually not best to go off of bra or cup sizing, though this is generally the inclination. A “D” cup in one brand may be largely different than a “D” cup by another line and therefore is not a consistent or accurate form of sizing. A better form of measurement is cubic centimeters or “cc’s.” This is a much more accurate depiction of size and puts the surgeon and patient on the same playing field with equal understanding.
Breast Augmentation Honolulu provides a service with beautiful end results and rapid recovery time. This surgery is a great option for individuals who know what they want and are ready to get the results they desire. Many choose to have liposuction and a tummy tuck at the same time, saving money and recovery time. Surgeons are happy and ready to get you the breasts and body you have been dreaming of, keeping you informed and comfortable throughout the process.
