In an interview this week with Dr. Michelle Copeland questions are answered for anyone considering breast surgery. How would you like to be perceived, bold or natural? Do you want your breasts to be the first thing someone notices when they meet you, or would you like a more natural look? Dr. Copeland’s advice: buy a bra of your desired size and fill it accordingly, put on your clothes and see what you think.
Take a look in the mirror, would you prefer a lift or volume? Woman with saggy breasts may opt for a breast lift, while those with smaller breasts tend to want an increase in breast volume. But, don’t be fooled, aside from aesthetics, lifestyle plays a role too. An athletically involved woman may want to consider how the size of her new breasts will affect her workout. Proportion. Proportion. Proportion. Shoulder width, waistline and other factors are included in the decision making process.
You may have an idea by now what you would like your breasts to look like, but which implant is right for you? You could use siliconE or saline. Saline uses a salt water filled implant and was considered safer at one time. Now, both are ranked equally in safeness to the patient. But, maybe you would like to try something a little more natural. In recent years, using the body’s own fat storage as filler has gained popularity. This method is called fat grafting.
We’re not surprised this is a popular method. Who wouldn’t want to lose fat from other parts of the body while achieving their desired breast size at the same time? We know we would! Would you? Inserting your own fat into the breast can be done all at one time or in intervals until desired fullness is attained. And remember, desired fullness is what you think “desired fullness is”. While most of us do like to please our significant other, ultimately, it’s your body and your body only.
It’s important to consider all aspects of breast surgery before you dive in. That’s why it’s recommended you make an appointment with the Doctor and see what options are right for you. Final advice: if you are unhappy with the appearance of your breasts, do something about it, because breasts matter.
