Breast Augmentation for New Tampa Patients – What to Know Before Your Consultation
If you are considering breast augmentation and live in New Tampa, you can turn to the Bayside Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, where Dr. John Roach has performed countless breast augmentation procedures. Dr. Roach is one of the most experienced and reputable breast surgeons in Florida, and is well known for both his expert skill and his dedication to patient care. When you see Dr. Roach for your initial breast augmentation consultation, he will take the time to educate you on the many options available for your surgery. However, it may still be helpful to learn a bit more about these options beforehand, so that you can feel more comfortable during your consultation and can prepare any questions you may have for Dr. Roach.
Some options to consider include:
- Implant type – Dr. Roach typically uses implants that have an outer shell made of silicone. The implants can be filled with either a saline solution or a silicone gel. The newest version of the silicone gel is unique in that it is a cohesive gel, with a texture similar to a gummy bear, giving these implants the nickname “gummy bear implants.” Dr. Roach often recommends this implant option to breast augmentation patients in New Tampa, as many surgeons and patients believe the gummy bear implants provide a more natural look and feel to the breasts.
- Implant size – Depending on your appearance goals, you may already have an implant size in mind. Dr. Roach will consider your surgical expectations, as well as other factors like the amount of breast tissue you have already, your specific body type, and your lifestyle before recommending an implant size.
- Implant placement – Your breast implants can be placed beneath your pectoral muscle, on top of the muscle, or partially below and partially above the muscle. Depending on your health history and other factors, Dr. Roach will determine the best implant placement for your surgery.
