Breast Augmentation: FAQs

This is an old video of HKB Renaissance, in an interview with K104.7’s Robin Marshall. He discusses some of the most frequently asked questions about breast augmentation. Take a look, and let us know if you have a question that wasn’t answered! (If you can’t watch the video in full, a synopsis is below.)

Why do women pursue breast augmentation?

Some feel that they have never developed to where they think they should be for their figure. Many women pursue breast augmentation after having children, hoping to return to their original breast size. Although breasts might enlarge during the pregnancy, they have a tendency to involute, or shrink, after giving birth and breastfeeding.

Women with large breasts often seek a lift. Many women seeking breast augmentation are interested most in improving the appearance of their cleavage and the overall shape of the breast.

Should we be afraid of silicone implants?

In a word, no. There was a time in the 80s where there speculation on the safety of implants. Now, over 20 years later, independent scientists have performed much research, proving that silicone implants are safe.

In fact, as of December 2006, the FDA approved silicone gel implants for both reconstructive and cosmetic surgeries.

What is the difference between silicone gel implants and saline implants?

To your body, there is no difference. The shell for both is silicone rubber, and this has never changed. The inside is either salt water or silicone gel. In terms of look and shape, they are similar, but HKB Renaissance will recommend the best type of implant based on certain factors. For instance, for thin patients, with very little body fat, he would recommend gel implants, in order to avoid scalloping, or irregularities around the edge. Alternatively, for the individuals with fuller breasst and more muscle structure, HKB Renaissance might recommend the saline implants.

During our consultation, we will review a variety of styles and samples of both types of implants to make your decision easier and more personalized to your body.

Will I be able to feel them after the surgery?

For the first few months, you might be aware that they are there, simply because it is a new feature of your body. After that, they will feel as natural to your body as arms and legs.
