Breast Implants in Cleveland, OH
What are Breast Implants?
When women feel insecure and unsatisfied with the size of their breasts, they often look to breast implants for a feminine figure and increased confidence. For other patients, breast implants are recommended as part of reconstructive surgery following a mastectomy, traumatic injury, or to correct birth defects. While many reasons exist for patients to consider breast implants, all patients should be aware of the range of materials available and how the choice can affect their desired results.
When it comes to breast implants, the two most well-known options are saline and silicone breast implants. Fat transfer is a fairly new technique that avoids the use of breast implants by harvesting natural fatty tissue from donor areas of the body, like the midsection or thighs. Each breast enhancement option has its own set of advantages.
How Much Do Breast Implants Cost in Cleveland, OH?
The cost of your breast implants is going to depend on the type of implants you choose to help you achieve your desired results. Dr. Husni will go over the details of your breast augmentation including the overall cost of your implants during the time of your private consultation. At Neo Aesthetic Institute, we are happy to offer financing options that allow you the comfort and convenience of paying for your procedure at your leisure.
What is the Difference Between Saline Breast Implants and Silicone Breast Implants?
Silicone implants are filled with a plastic gel to give them their shape and feel. Saline breast implants have silicone shells, albeit a different form, that are filled with sterile saltwater, also known as saline. Many women agree that silicone breast implants feel and look more like real, natural breasts than saline breast implants. However, silicone breast implants come with higher risks if they leak than the saline options. The new silicone breast implants are now made with a cohesive gel, rather than a liquid to reduce risks if a rupture occurs. It is important to acknowledge that women’s breasts can continue to grow and develop in their late teens or early 20s. For this reason and the potential risks that come with silicone implants, the FDA requires women to be at least 22 years old prior to receiving silicone implants and at least 18 years old prior to receiving saline implants.
What is Fat Transfer for Breast Augmentation?
The fat transfer breast augmentation option is available for patients who wish to achieve fuller breasts without the insertion of an artificial breast implant. During this procedure, the doctor will harvest fat from the donor sites of the patient, such as the thighs and the abdomen areas, via liposuction. The fat collected will then be refined and purified before it is injected into the breasts again with small syringes so that the harvested tissue is evenly distributed. The fat transfer option is considered more natural because it uses the patient’s own natural tissues. The patient’s body often absorbs some of the transferred fat, but there is no significant health risk associated with this process.
Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Implants?
Women who would like to increase the size of their breasts or restore breast volume that has been lost after weight loss or pregnancy are often considered good candidates for breast implants. While breast implants can address the shape of breasts by adding fullness, they may not be appropriate for severely drooping breasts. If sagging is a concern in addition to size, consider a procedure such as a breast lift, which may be performed separately or completed in conjunction with breast implants for optimal results.
Qualities of a good candidate for breast implants include being physically healthy and having realistic expectations for the procedure. Women who would like to improve their overall appearance after childbirth are advised to wait until they have finished having children. Waiting allows new mothers to get the most out of a mommy makeover. As with any surgery, Dr. Husni will want to know about your medical history and any medical conditions that may impact whether you are healthy enough for an elective cosmetic procedure.
