Breast implants are not anything new. In fact, women desire them for many different reasons. Some of the most common are due to experienced volume loss after losing weight or childbirth, and simply balancing out asymmetrical breasts. All of these reasons boil down to the need to improve body image and self-confidence.

With the current technology available for breast augmentation, the results are becoming more effective than ever before. These new innovations have helped to remedy issues that have come up in the past with older procedure styles. In fact, let’s take a closer look at three specific benefits that you can gain from undergoing a breast augmentation with today’s innovations.

Various Implant Options

When breast implants were first introduced into the cosmetic market, there were many options other than the cup size. Now, there are various different styles of implants for women to choose from. The two primary types of implants are saline and silicone. Silicone is by far the most popular for many different reasons.

When it comes to the silicone implants, there are different degrees of cohesive gel available now.  The most cohesive is commonly referred to as the “Gummy bear implant”.  There are different shapes of implants; round and anatomical.  These options can be discussed during your consultation.  Dr. Howland generally uses a smooth round implant for breast augmentation.

Better Technology

There are various surgical techniques that can be performed by Dr. Howland during your procedure. By scheduling an initial consultation with Howland Plastic Surgery, you can discover the best type of surgical technique for your body and desires. These different techniques are altered by the placement of the incision and the actual implants themselves.

One new procedure that has come to light over the years in the breast augmentation sector is the fat transfer option. This allows women who are looking to add more volume to their breasts to get so without actual implants. This procedure uses fat from various areas of the body via liposuction from the hips, abdomen, love handles, or somewhere else. The excess fat that was extracted from the body is carefully injected into the breasts to increase their volume. This type of procedure can be done very carefully by Dr. Howland to ensure that there are no scars left behind.

More Natural-Looking Results

You shouldn’t have to choose between your natural body and having bigger breasts with an unnatural look to them. With today’s cosmetic technology, there are many ways to get more natural looking breasts with breast augmentations. Most women who undergo this type of procedure are simply looking for a subtle way to improve the symmetry of their breasts as well as the volume. This can be easily accomplished with more modern breast augmentation techniques that will leave behind a natural and smooth look for the breasts.
