Considering a Breast Augmentation - Orlando Plastic Surgeon Dr. Kamran Azad consults with patients and collaborates for desired results.
Have you considered having a breast augmentation? Well, then, it's probably time to consider the many factors that go into making this decision. One of Orlando's top plastic surgeons. Dr. Kamran Azad's experience, patients often come in with a vague idea of what they want their new breasts to look like. They may have seen a picture online or talked to friends who have had surgical procedures themselves. However, there is much more involved than simply finding someone who has had the procedure done before. Your body type, skin tone, and lifestyle can all play an important role in determining which procedure is right for you!

Breast Implant Considerations
There are various types of breast implants, and each has its benefits and drawbacks. It’s important to consider your options before deciding what type of implant you want. In Orlando, Azad Plastic Surgery sets up consultations for each individual to evaluate implant types. Not in the Orlando Area? Ask about our out-of-town packages.
Size: The size of the implant will affect both the contour and appearance of your breasts. If you have very small breasts or short nipples, then smaller implants may be necessary to achieve an attractive result. However, suppose your current cup size is small or medium-sized . In that case, most surgeons recommend moderate increases in volume for maximum satisfaction with minimal scarring.
Shape: Different shapes can also affect a woman's appearance after receiving new breast implants. Rectangles tend to be longer than round ones so that they fill out the breast better at its base—and thus look more natural under clothing—but either option might work well depending on what kind of shape works best for someone’s physique.
Style: Some surgeons specialize in certain styles, such as inframammary incisions, while others perform all types equally well; therefore, it's wise to research both options thoroughly so that when choosing which one is right for you, there won't be any surprises later down the road.
Durability: This refers mostly to silicone vs. saline fillers used inside these devices since they last approximately 5-10 years before needing to be replaced again.
Your choice of implant size should consider the size of your breasts before surgery. Your surgeon can tell you what size is appropriate for you, but it's important to know that breast implants come in many different sizes. The most common options are 250cc, 300cc, 350cc and 400cc (and sometimes 450cc). For example:
If you're a small A-cup who wants to be a full C-cup after breast augmentation surgery, then 250cc will likely be enough for you.
If you're an average B/small C cup who wants to be a full D cup after breast augmentation surgery, then 350 cc may be more appropriate for your body type and lifestyle needs.
If you're somewhat larger than average and hoping to increase your bra size from DD to H or J cups (or even K or L), then 400 cc might be right up your alley!
As with all things cosmetic surgery related—when it comes down to the right fit, Dr. Azad will be right there to consult with you so everyone is happy with the results.
Saline vs. Silicone Implants
There are two primary and most common breast implants: saline and silicone. Saline implants hold a saline solution, while silicone implants contain a silicone gel.
If you're considering breast augmentation, it's important to understand the differences between the two options to make an informed decision about which type is right for your body and lifestyle. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Azad today and discuss which type may be best for you!
Saline implants are generally less expensive than silicone ones, but they also have some disadvantages:
They tend to be less durable than silicone implants; if you choose this option, you'll likely need multiple surgeries to replace them over time as your breasts change size or shape (though some women will never need another surgery).
They may be rejected by your body more easily than silicone ones—and if this happens after the operation has been completed, there is no way of reversing the process at this point since part of what makes up these types of materials (namely fats) has already been removed from elsewhere in one's body during the surgery itself!
The location of your breast augmentation incision is one of the most important decisions to make during your procedure. The incision will determine how visible it is and how much scarring there will be, which can affect your overall satisfaction with the results.
Location: Your surgeon will make an incision in either “the armpit” or “around the areola.” The former option will leave a scar that runs from about 4 inches below the armpit to about 1 inch above it (on each side). This scar may become less noticeable over time as it fades away. Still, it will always be present unless you have another surgery to remove it—and even then, there would still be some evidence of past surgery on your body.
What To Look Out For: If you want a natural-looking result without many marks left behind by previous procedures, consider choosing an incision around the areola rather than in the armpit area! This way you get results that look more natural and blend right into what was already there before surgery began; no one knows till years later when they see pictures taken immediately after their procedure!
