Small breasts are made fuller either by inserting saline or silicone implants or by addition of multiple fat grafts of your own tissue. You will need to make decisions on breast size (cup size), on the type and shape of implants you will receive, and on the location of your incisions. Implants can be inserted through a small incision along the edge of the areola or a small incision along the bottom edge of the breast. The fat graft procedure leaves no scars on the breasts. Dr. Lincenberg will discuss your options with you at your consultation, as well as whether or not fat grafting is an option for you.
The method of inserting and positioning your breast implants will depend on your anatomy and Dr. Lincenberg's recommendation. The incision can be made either in the crease under the breast, in the edge of the areola (the dark skin surrounding the nipple), or in the armpit. Every effort is made by Dr. Lincenberg during his Atlanta breast augmentation procedures to assure that the incision is placed so resulting scars will be as inconspicuous as possible.
You may choose either silicone or saline implants. Silicone implants are made from a gel that holds together uniformly while retaining the natural give that resembles breast tissue. Saline implants are filled with a saltwater solution similar to the fluid that makes up most of the human body and have a slightly firmer feel.
Another choice you will need to make when considering coming to our offices in Atlanta and Cumming for breast augmentation is breast size. You may also have concerns about breast shape and proportions that bra cup size alone can't describe. When you come for your consultation, Dr. Lincenberg will ask you for your personal preferences, so he can take them into account in recommending the right implant size and shape for you. You can try on breast implant sizers during your consultation to help you with this decision.
