The Perks of Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation in New Jersey doesn't have to be a forbidden topic. In fact, celebrity and country singer, Jena Kramer recently confessed her hesitation and embarrassment about wanting a breast augmentation and worried about what people would think about her change.

"...After having babies, I had a new set of insecurities with my body. Things didn't go back to normal, and I carry a lot of embarrassment when I'm undressed." said Kramer.

If you are contemplating breast augmentation, Dr. Alexis Parcells, Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon in New Jersey is here to guide you on your journey. Together, you will discuss your concerns and ideals, determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure, and of course, answer all of your questions and concerns.

Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation?

According to the Plastic Surgery Statistics Report, over 300,000 women in the U.S. undergo breast augmentation every year, and it is the most common cosmetic procedure in the United States. For most women, you will fall into three main categories in determining if breast augmentation is right for you:

  • Any woman ready to make a change
  • Have a healthy (smoke-free) loving relationship with their body, a sound mind, and realistic expectation
  • Women 18-22 who feel uncomfortable about their breast shape

Think about how you feel about your breasts and whether or not you are ready to make a change. If you want your breasts to be fuller, and/or correct the different sizes of your breasts (breast asymmetry), then breast augmentation is a viable option for you.

Your bras and clothes will fit better, you will see an improvement in your self-esteem, and even better, you will be happy with the results for years to come.

What Exactly is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation or Augmentation Mammaplasty is a cosmetic procedure used to increase the size of the breasts by inserting silicone or saline breast implants either under the breast tissue or under the muscle in the chest. The purpose of the implants is to give the breasts a fuller and youthful appearance.

What Are the Different Types of Breast Implants

At Parcells Plastic Surgery in New Jersey, Dr. Alexis Parcells will determine what is the best size of implant to achieve your ideal breast. There are some regulations in place by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which stipulates that saline breast implants are approved for use in women 18 and over.

In contrast, silicone implants are approved for women 22 and over. It is strongly advised to refrain from getting breast implants while breastfeeding or pregnant or plan to become pregnant.

What Are My Breast Implant Choices?

Silicone Implants

Silicone implants are the most preferred implant because of the natural feel compared to normal breast tissue. Silicone Implants are silicone shells pre-filled with a gel-like substance. You and Dr. Parcells will determine the perfect size and shape for your body. A general rule of thumb is that 250 “cc” of an implant is equivalent to increasing the breast by one cup size.

Saline Implants

The saline implant is also a silicone shell, but it is implanted into the breast unfilled. Once the saline implant is inserted, it is then filled with a saline solution (saltwater). On the plus side, the saline implants can be adjusted during surgery to increase or decrease size based on the most desired look you and Dr. Parcells discussed. The implant can even be adjusted after surgery to add or remove fill without requiring additional surgery.

Will anyone be able to tell I got a boob job?
