Breast augmentation helps to improve the shape of the breast and increase the breast size to more ideal levels. However, breast augmentations, also known as a boob job, can be performed in several different ways to give women the results they want. From different surgical techniques to differing implant options, there are tons of ways to customize a procedure.
Dr. Vitenas believes that each patient should be able to customize their look when getting a breast augmentation done. While the boob job is a popular type of plastic surgery, it is not one size fits all. This is why Dr. Vitenas offers a range of choices for this type of cosmetic surgery.
In today’s post, we will talk specifically about how Dr. Vitenas customizes your breast augmentation surgery for you. We’ll go over his methods meticulously this way you are prepared for your consultation and know exactly how to customize your breast augmentation.
So, keep reading to find out everything you need to know!
How Will Your Breast Augmentation Be Customized Dr. Vitenas?
Each woman needs to have their procedure tailored to their bodies and their needs so they get the best results. There are many ways to customize your breast augmentation. But, Dr. Vitenas uses the following methods and steps to help you achieve your desired look, and make your breasts larger and more shaped.
1. A Consultation is Scheduled
The first way that Dr. Vitenas customizes your breast augmentation is through consultation. In order to help you meet your goals and achieve the results you are looking for, you have to talk about what you want your breasts to look like. Talking with Dr. Vitenas will help give him an idea of what methods he should use for the procedure.
And, luckily, the process of booking a consultation is simple. Just contact us through our website or over the phone and meet with Dr. Vitenas for your scheduled appointment. Once you arrive at the office, he will walk you through each step of your breast augmentation.
You will also learn about what kind of enhancements will be done to your breast and can talk about which surgical methods are right for you specifically. At the same time, you will also begin choosing your breast implant size, shape, type, and profile.
We’ll talk more about implants and how Dr. Vitenas uses them to customize your procedure in the next section. As there are many choices that need to be made.
2. The Breast Implant Type Is Chosen
Before your procedure is done, Dr. Vitenas will prepare ahead of time and help you choose the type of breast implant that will be placed in your chest. This can include saline implants, which are filled with sterile saltwater. Saline was more popular in the past and creates a more firm feeling.
But nowadays, silicone implants are more likely to be used in this procedure. They make the breasts have a more natural feeling as these implants have silicone gel inserted in them. Both types of implants have their advantages and disadvantages, though.
Dr. Vitenas will help you make the appropriate decision. Depending on what you are looking for, one option will have to be chosen over the other. Usually, if you want to customize the size of your breast, saline might be the better option for you, especially if you want to go bigger.
Whichever option you go with, though, you can rest easy knowing that our breast implants are FDA approved and pre-filled. Both the silicone and saline implants come in a range of shapes and sizes. Dr. Vitenas will customize your implant to your specifications this way you get the exact results you want.
3. Breast Shape Is Discussed and Implemented Into The Procedure
Breast shape is another customization option that will have to be discussed with Dr. Vitenas beforehand. There are a few different options you can choose from, but typically you can go with the traditional round breast shape. Or you can have a teardrop-shaped implant that will customize your look.
Either implant can be ideal, but teardrop-shaped implants are more expensive and have more risks associated with them. Dr. Vitenas will explain everything during your consultation. Round breast implants tend to look less natural, but they lift the breast up more and create better volume.
4. The Texture of Your Breast Implant Is Discussed
In addition to different shapes, breast implants also come in two different textures. In most plastic surgery clinics, you can choose between smooth and textured implants. Textured implants tend to cost less and move around less. However, smooth implants are much more popular and they tend to create the best results for breast augmentation.
This is why Dr. Vitenas uses smooth implants to customize your procedure exclusively. While textured implants do have their own benefits, there are some major risks involved with using textured implants.
In particular, textured implants could potentially lead to rare cancer known as BIA ALCL (breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma). This is not breast cancer, but your immune system will be attacked if you develop BIA ALCL. So, Vitenas Plastic Surgery only uses smooth implants in our procedures. This leads to a better aesthetic look and fewer overall health risks for the patient.
5. Breast Size Is Discussed and Implemented Into The Procedure
Then, after you have chosen the shape you want for your breast, the size of your implants will be chosen. This decision is largely up to you. But Dr. Vitenas will talk about which size is the best suited for your body type and lifestyle.
A lot of women want to go big right away and get the largest breasts they can have implanted. Large breasts can be attractive, but they are not always a good option for some women. In addition, larger implants carry more risk with them.
So, you want to choose an implant size that matches your body proportions well. This is why Dr. Vitenas will help you find the best implant and customize the size for you; as a result, your body will be accentuated in all the right ways once your implants are put in.
Depending on your chest size, your body frame, and your activity level, Dr. Vitenas can customize your breast implant size perfectly. For instance, if you have a larger frame and a larger chest area, bigger implants are ideal. But more petite women or women that are highly active should consider getting smaller implants.
6. Talking About Your Breast Implant Profile
Finally, after talking about the shape, size, and type of implant, Dr. Vitenas will go over the profile of your breast implant. Your breast implant profile refers to the projection of your chest. In other words, how far out will your breast go when your implants are placed in?
You will have three options presented to you which will help to customize your procedure. This includes a low profile, moderate profile, and high profile implant.
Low-profile implants are best for women that have a wider chest. This type of implant won’t project out as much and leads to less volume overall. So, it’s better for women that don’t want overly large breasts.
On the other hand, a moderate profile will lead to more projection. Moderate profile breast implants look more natural and create better fullness of the breast. But these implants are better suited to women with flatter chests or narrow chests.
Lastly, you can choose a high-profile breast implant. These implants do not look as natural as a moderate profile, but you get maximum volume, height, roundness, and projection with this profile.
High profiles are best suited for women with very small chests and women who are on the petite side. Again, though, Dr. Vitenas will talk with you about which profile is right for your body type.
7. Choosing The Placement of The Breast Implant
The placement of your breast implant will also impact the look of your chest after surgery. Dr. Vitenas will choose the places of the breast with you. You want to know where your implants will be placed to further customize your breast augmentation.
For example, you can have your implants placed over the muscle; this is known as a sub-glandular implant. You can also have your implant placed under the muscle; this is known as a submuscular implant.
You might choose to have one placement over the other for several reasons. Dr. Vitenas will explain the pros and cons when you have your consultation. However, many women go with sub-glandular implants, as they are easier to recover from and create less discomfort after surgery.
Still, this kind of implant placement does pose the risk of complications like capsular contracture. This is why Dr. Vitenas might also suggest going with a submuscular implant. While the recovery time is longer, your implants are less likely to have complications, and it will be easier to get mammograms with placement in this area.
Dr. Vitenas will go over these customization options with you and explain them in more detail so you have a better understanding. But this is just one other way he makes your breast augmentation personally suited for you with customization.
8. Fat Transfer As An Alternative to Implants
Breast implants are not the only way to augment the size of your breasts and customize your breast augmentation. In fact, if you want to increase your breast size you can use a more natural method that involves fat transfer. This is a great alternative to breast implants and can be easier to recover from.
In order to do this customization, Dr. Vitenas uses liposuction to take fat from various parts of the body. Areas like your abdomen, back, and thighs are targeted and harvested of their fat. Then the fat is purified and then placed into your breasts to improve their shape and size. If you are interested in this customization option, Dr. Vitenas will bring it up to you during consultation.
Some women are better candidates for a fat transfer and will benefit from doing this type of breast augmentation in comparison to having implants put in. The choice is up to you though.
9. Breast Lift to Correct Loose and Sagging Skin
In addition to having a breast augmentation, a breast lift can also be added to your procedure. This will help transform your breast line and even improve the results of your breast augmentation in the long run.
Breast lifts can be ideal for women especially as the body changes with major life events. For instance, women who have gone through a pregnancy, undergone major weight loss, or have major signs of aging could have a breast lift performed to further customize and enhance their breast augmentation.
It is an unfortunate reality but breast tissue sags and loosens as we get older. This can lead to breast sagging, drooping, and an uneven look in the chest area. To correct this and customize your procedure, Dr. Vitenas offers a breast lift along with breast augmentation.
With this option, you will be able to restore your breast to a more perky and upright position, which will lead to a more youthful and pleasing look overall. Talk to Dr. Vitenas if this sounds like something you would be interested in.
