Maintaining Realistic Expectations About Breast Augmentation
Many patients come into our offices with a specific vision for their breasts. They may want to increase size or change shape, achieving a look similar to a favorite celebrity. At Restora Austin Plastic Surgery Centre, our world class surgeons will work with you to create a breast augmentation plan that meets your goals, but know that we may be limited in what we’re able to achieve. The final look of your breasts is determined by your anatomy and there is only so much we can do to change that. It’s important to understand that ‘your canvas isn’t blank’. Realistic expectations are very important when preparing for breast surgery.
Your Current Breasts and Your New Breasts
Plastic surgery is an art form and your surgeon will need to create your new breasts from the ‘canvas’ you already have. Your natural breasts will impact the results we can achieve through breast surgery. Implants will make your breasts larger, but they cannot change your breast position on the chest wall or correct significant sagging. Your natural breast shape, size, and position will play a role in determining your look after breast augmentation.
During your consultation, we’ll examine your breasts and point out the unique characteristics that will affect your breast augmentation results. Many techniques and implant options are available to help us work with your anatomy to achieve stunning breast augmentation results. We’ll explain your options and provide recommendations for the best results. We have so many options with regard to implants that we will find the perfect set for you!
What Will I Look Like After Breast Augmentation?
As we meet with potential breast augmentation patients, we strive to provide information so they can make an informed choice about their procedure. We want you to be delighted with your new look and that requires understanding of what we can and cannot achieve. Your final look will be dependent on your anatomy in part, but the decisions you make about implant size, shape, placement, etc. will also impact your look.
Come sit down with us during a consultation and explore your options. We can give a better idea of what is possible and how you’ll look after an in-person consultation.
