You may know that “ABC is as simple as 123,” but you may not know the ABC’s of breast augmentations. If you are considering getting a breast augmentation from our office, we won’t be quizzing you on any of these terms, but just for fun, we thought that we’d go over what they are.
The most obvious and important part of the breast surgery alphabet is “A” for “augmentation.” Breast augmentation is done by using either silicone or saline implants to help you enhance the size, shape, and overall appearance of your breasts. During your breast augmentation consultation, we will show you both of these types of implants and even let you hold them in your hands so that you can feel firsthand the difference between them.
B: Breast Capsule
As your breasts heal in your body, tissue will form around your breast implant as a normal part of the healing process. The great thing about a breast capsule is that it’s not only normal, but it will actually help keep your breast implant in place so that it doesn’t move around.
C: Cohesive Breast Implants
Cohesive breast implants or gummy bear implants have really taken the breast implant world by storm. The great thing about these implants is that their cohesive texture feels a lot more natural than other forms of implants which is why they are more popular.
Now that you have learned a new type of ABC’s, it’s time to schedule your consultation with us at our Bloomington office. Call us at (309) 662-6772
