The Candidate
The ideal candidate for breast augmentation is a woman who has specific concerns regarding the size and shape of her breast, and realistic expectations regarding her expected outcome. It is important to be self-motivated, non-impulsive or pressured by her partner, and also well informed and educated on the changes she is making on her breast size.

The Procedure
When choosing an implant size, many factors such as body type and breast shape come into play. Proportional body measurements should be taken into account to achieve a total body balance. Breast augmentation not only is about a larger cup size, and there is no "perfect size". Women have individual features and desires, breast augmentation is about enhancing the aesthetics, beauty of the breast, and body as a whole. During your consultation Dr Edween will listen to your goals and help guide your decision on what is the best to achieve your desired outcome. There are a few considerations:

Type of incision:
Periareolar: A semicircular placed around the nipple area
Inframammary: Tucked under the breast within the breast fold
Transumbilical: Tucked within the belly button/navel
Axillary: Along the crease within the armpit

Type of Implants
There are basically two types of breast implants to consider:
Saline: Commonly used for primary augmentation. Saline is a natural occurring substance in body, enables total customization for asymmetric breasts
Silicone gel: Designed to feel softer to the touch

Placement
There are two types of placement of implants
Supramuscular: The implant is placed above the pectoralmuscle, advantages being a faster recovery.
Submuscular, where the implant is placed below both the pectoral muscle andoverlying breast tissue. The results provide a more natural appearance, it is less prone to scar tissue and provide a better view on mammography.

Deciding which incision and which implant placement method is best done after a physical examination, since your breast shape and desired results will dictate the profile options appropriate for you. Dr. Edween only uses top quality breast implants from Natrelle and Mentor, companies that have strict standards with warranties on their products.
