Considering breast implants in Palm Beach? Whether your reason behind wanting implants is medical or cosmetic, there’s no doubt implants can dramatically improve your appearance and self-esteem. There are some things you should know before making a decision on whether to get them or not.

There are different textures, shapes, and styles of breast implants.

There are many different types of breast implants available. Textured implants have a sandpaper-like surface that helps the implant better adhere to the surrounding tissue. Implants come in many different shapes and styles. Most of the time it is just a matter of a personal preference whether you choose conical, round, or anatomical shapes or which profile you choose. Factors that weigh into decision include your body type, your appearance goals, and placement type. Your cosmetic surgeon will review with you the various types of implants and help you choose the best type for you based on your desired look and feel.

You have placement options for breast implants in palm beach.

Again, your surgeon can help you make this decision, which is affected by the type of implants you choose, the amount of breast tissue you already have, the shape and size of your chest and breasts, and other factors. Breast implants can be placed submuscularly (under chest muscle and fatty breast tissue) or subglandularly (between breast tissue and muscle).

The quality of your breast tissue may affect the size implants you’re able to get.

Integrity of the breast tissue is very important. This plays an important role in deciding how much larger you can go with your implants. Your doctor may determine it’s best not to go from A to D if surrounding tissues will be negatively affected.

Breast Implants in Palm beach are not lifelong devices.

Many women outlive their implants, which means that you should go into surgery with the understanding that you are likely to have a surgery in the future to remove or redo your implants. Implants are intended to be long lasting however, and the risk of requiring surgery due to complications from breast implants is more slim now than in the past.

You will need lifelong breast exams to monitor implants.

Expect to have regular checkups to catch any complications such as rupturing that may arise  as soon as possible. If you choose silicone implants, you may even require ultrasounds or MRIs to monitor your implants, which your insurance may not cover.

Your cosmetic surgeon can combine other surgeries with breast implants in Palm Beach.

You can have a breast lift, tummy tuck, and / or liposuction done at the same time as implant surgery. Many women choose to have these surgeries combined, known as a “Mommy Makeover” after they are finished having children.

Talk to your doctor about any concerns you may have.

Keep the communication open with your surgeon, and ask any questions you may have before making a final decision. For a consultation to learn more about breast implant surgery, call Dr. Rosenstein today at 561-736-9800.
