Breast Augmentation Q & A

What is breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a cosmetic surgery that expands the size of your breasts, improves their shape or symmetry, or makes them appear perkier or higher on your chest. There are numerous changes you can make with a breast augmentation, but the main objective is to make your bosom more attractive. 

At Diamond Surgical Institute, you can get a breast augmentation as a preferential and confidence-boosting body alteration or to rebuild your breasts after a mastectomy, or removal of breast tissue due to breast cancer. To do this, your surgeon inserts artificial breast implants that imitate the texture of true breast tissue beneath your skin. These implants help them feel firmer and more youthful in texture, too.

What are my choices for breast implants?

At Diamond Surgical Institute, you have two options for implant materials: saline and silicone. They use breast implants by Mentor® that stay strong and hold firm in your body. 

Saline implants

Saline implants are breast-shaped pouches filled with a sterile saltwater solution. With the liquid inside, your new breasts fall naturally on your chest and don’t place much pressure on the underlying tissues.

Silicone implants

Silicone implants feel more firm and are more difficult to damage than their saline counterparts since they contain a silicone gel instead of a liquid. 

Can men get breast augmentation surgery?

While breast augmentation is far more popular for women who want larger breasts, many patients don’t realize that the surgery is available for men, too. Men often opt for firm silicone implants to take the form of defined pectoral muscles on their chests. Just like with women, this surgery gives them a boost in body confidence.

Men also have the option to choose saline implants if they’re in the process of a gender transition and want to have softer and more feminine breasts.

How should I prepare for my breast augmentation?

Your Diamond Surgical Institute surgeon gives you several instructions to follow leading up to your surgery. It’s important that you follow them to minimize your risk of complications. You must:

  • Stop smoking
  • Avoid medications that increase bleeding (e.g., aspirin)
  • Get a mammogram
  • Make arrangements for assistance after the surgery

Your surgeon might give you extra instructions according to your current lifestyle. If you have any questions leading up to your surgery, don’t hesitate to contact Diamond Surgical Institute.

No matter your reason for wanting larger, perkier, or firmer breasts, call Diamond Surgical Institute or book a consultation online for breast augmentation surgery today.
