When considering breast implants or breast augmentation in San Antonio, it’s common to have more than a few questions. Before you commit to such a procedure, it’s important to be well-informed and comfortable with what’s to come and what you can expect throughout your recovery and beyond. To help you make an informed decision, here are some common questions.
What types are available?
Breast implants in San Antonio come in a few forms, but most surgeons have a preference for certain types in terms of familiarity and preferred outcomes. The most significant divides lay in the shape of the implant, i.e. round versus teardrop shaped, and the content of the implant, i.e. saline or silicone gel.
Will they look fake?
Modern breast implants in San Antonio are generally indistinguishable from a natural breast, outside of intentional shaping of the breast for a specific aesthetic or exceptional size. From a visual perspective, saline and silicone both look great, but some women do note that silicone implants feel more natural than saline implants.
How long does recovery take?
Recovery from breast augmentation doesn’t take too long, but you won’t be doing military presses for a while. Once you are completely healed, you’ll be ready to tackle the gym again at full force.
Are they safe?
While minor complications aren’t rare with any augmentation, both silicone and saline breast augmentation are well-studied and approved by the FDA. That said, the majority of women experience no issues with their new implants.
How long will they last?
At best, your breast implants will last your entire life without any issues, adjustments or replacement. More realistically, you should expect your implants to go the average of 10-20 years before they need replacement or removal.
