Augmentation Has Lots of Other Decisions

Breast Augmentationn Encino, CAObviously, breast augmentation changes a woman’s body in a big way. But it also can change a woman’s self-esteem and certainly her body image. It’s a big decision to make, and it should only be made for you, not at the behest of a partner.

Once you decide to go ahead with augmentation, there is a host of other decisions you’ll need to make. They can seem daunting, but Dr. Malamet will walk you through each option, so you can make the choices that are right for you.

Implant type

You’ll first choose your implant type: saline, silicone, or cohesive silicone. Each option has its pluses and minuses.

Implant size and shape

Beyond the type of implant, you’ll need to decide on the size and the shape of your implants. Beyond the size, which is measured in cubic centimeters of the filling substance, you also will decide on projection and the shape of your implants.

Incision location

Your final decision is the location of the incision. Implants can be placed through an incision in the armpit, at the base of the areola, or on the decrease of the breast. Each choice has its pluses and minuses, and Dr. Malamet will discuss them with you during your consultations before surgery.

If you’re thinking about breast augmentation, call Dr. Malamet and schedule a consultation. He’ll answer your questions and address any concerns. Call us, 818-380-3130.
