The Benefits of Large Implants for Breast Augmentation
Most women are not blessed with the voluptuous bust line that they desire, which is why breast augmentation to enhance the size and shape of the breasts, year after year, continues to be one of the most frequently performed plastic surgery procedures. While there are many important considerations that go into a breast augmentation, one of the most difficult decisions is what size breast implant to use. Choosing a breast implant is vital to creating the desired body contours, but also plays a large role in creating ideal body proportions. Most women want to make sure the results of breast augmentation are obvious, so they tend to ask for large breast implants from Fort Worth plastic surgeon Vishnu Rumalla. While large breast implants may be a great choice for many women, it is not always the best option. Dr. Rumalla discusses with patients the benefits and risks of large breast implants to help them choose an implant size that is best-suited to their needs and desires.
Benefits of Large Implants
There are some definite advantages to consider when it comes to choosing large breast implants. When it comes to breast augmentation revision surgery, one of the most common reasons that patients request a secondary breast augmentation procedure is because they feel like their initial procedure failed to provide them with the significantly larger bust line they desired. The primary benefit of large breast implants is that they will enhance the breasts to a significant degree, thus giving patients the distinction they desire from surgery.
One of the other benefits of large breast implants is that they can provide patients with better body proportions. If a woman has larger hips or thighs, large breast implants can even out the body and create an hourglass silhouette. This creates the curvy and visually appealing body proportions that are desired by many.
Risks of Large Implants
While there are advantages to choosing larger sized implants for a breast augmentation procedure, there are certainly some risks that should be considered before making the final decision for surgery. Below are some potential problems that may arise following breast augmentation with large implants:
- Surgical complication: Larger implants do carry a slightly higher risk of complications than smaller implants. Nipple numbness, bottoming out, capsular contracture, and thinning of breast tissue are among the potential complications of large breast implants.
- Physical strain: The excessive weight of large breast implants can put a physical strain on the body. Some of the symptoms that may be experienced by those who receive large breast implants include back, neck, and shoulder pain, and a limited capability to participate in physical activities.
- Increased attention: One of the truths of large breast implants is that they are more likely to draw people’s attention. While this may be considered a benefit by some patients, others find this extra attention undesirable. This is something that should be carefully considered prior to surgery.
