Your Breast Augmentation Questions Answered!


Today we’re taking some time to answer some of your burning questions about Breast Augmentation and the recovery process. Whether you are in the process of a breast augmentation procedure or you are considering one, these are some common questions that may have run through your head. Dr. Benien wants all of his Oklahoma clients at the Cosmetic Surgery Center feeling confident and so he’s compiled this list of frequently asked questions about breast augmentation. 

“Which are Better – Silicone or Saline Implants?”

The simple answer is “it depends on you and your goals.” Saline implants have shell that placed in position before filling the implant with sterile salt water. The perks of saline are that since the implants are filled after insertion, they require smaller incisions. Silicone on the other hand are already filled when placed. Silicone implants are popular because they are specifically created to feel and move like fat.

Benefits of saline implants include that they often cost less and may allow for larger enhancements and smaller incisions. Benefits of silicone implants include what many women feel is a more natural look and feel, as well as various shapes, and a cohesive silicone gel that is highly resistant to leaks or rupture.

“How Long Do I Have To Take Off Work?”

There are a variety of factors that you need to take in account when deciding how much time you need to take off work like pain tolerance, implant size, and how much physical activity is required at work. Everyone’s recovery time may look a little different. Generally speaking, a few days away from work is recommended. Dr. Benien understands that the recovery process may seem a little intimidating to some, which is why he takes the time to discuss downtime, physical activity limitations, and the healing process.

“Can Breast Augmentation Help Asymmetry?”

Absolutely! Breast Augmentation does much more than just changing the size of your breasts. Breast Augmentation is designed to enhance your appearance by also addressing the shape of your breasts. So if you are concerned about asymmetry, atypical size, or any other concern over shape, breast augmentation can help you feel confident in your balance once again. In some cases, a breast lift may also be recommended to reduce any sagging of the skin.
