Breast Augmentation: Spring Has (Almost) Sprung!

According to Dallas plastic surgeon, Dr. Denton Watumull, surgery times book up fast during Spring Break! Did you know that the most popular time of the year to have a breast augmentation is in the spring? If you are ready to look great in your swimsuit or sundress and want to schedule your breast augmentation during March or April, you should schedule a consultation with your plastic surgeon in January!

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Breast augmentation continues to be the top cosmetic surgical procedure and has been since 2006. There is an amazing assortment of breast implant options now available and a similarly diverse selection of placement techniques. As a result, you may wonder which combination of products and procedures will be right for your breast augmentation.

An excellent way to determine the appropriate implant size, shape, and material for your body and the desired outcome is to use the Vectra® 3D imaging software, which allows you to virtually “try on” breast implant types to see how they may potentially look following surgery. Furthermore, a thorough physical examination and discussion about your medical history can help to determine the optimal placement for the implants. Dr. Watumull recommends that implants be placed below the muscle to support the weight of the implant over time and for the most aesthetically appealing look and lowest risk of complications possible.

If you are considering breast augmentation but feel overwhelmed by the options, including silicone or saline, round or shaped, textured or smooth, we can help you understand the differences between these products. Furthermore, breast implant sizes can look dramatically different on one body frame compared to another. Just because 350cc implants look great on your friend does not mean that is the ideal size for you. Imaging software can allow you to compare various volumes to find the one that gives you the shape and fullness just right for you.
