If you are an athletic woman, the last thing you are going to want is something that is going to get in your way of reaching your personal goals and succeeding. As a type of surgery that was traditionally popular amongst housewives, a breast augmentation isn’t exactly the kind of surgery that’s traditionally desired by female athletes— or is it? As a way to enhance your toned body, a breast augmentation might just be the one thing preventing you from having the body of your dreams. Before you get this procedure, however, make sure to consider these three things. Read on to learn more.
One of the biggest considerations to make as a female athlete getting a breast augmentation is the size. Although you will want breasts that are noticeably larger than your natural ones, you don’t want to go so big that they interfere with your ability to workout and perform. Plus, if you go too large, they can cause back pain later on down the line. Dr. Rick Silverman will help you choose the right size for your body and lifestyle.
The Implant Type
There are two main types of implants: saline and silicone. Saline implants are known for having a harder texture— which may be something that you as an athlete wants. Silicone implants, on the other hand, are known for feeling a bit more natural. Depending on the results you want, Dr. Silverman can help you narrow down what type of implant is best for you.
The Incision Site
Depending on the types of workouts and sports you like to do, you may want to choose one incision site option over the other. For instance, if you play a sport that involves your arms, you may opt to have the incision made under the breast. Whereas if you play sports that require more use of your core, then you may opt to have the incision made through your armpit.
Getting a breast augmentation can enhance your overall appearance and self-confidence as a female athlete. However, when getting this surgery done, it’s important to consider the size, type of implant, and incision site.
