Patients frequently ask if they can “try on” breast implants to get a better feel for what different sizes will look like. After performing well over a thousand breast augmentation surgeries, I can assure you that the implants look and feel different once they are in the body. Inside the body, implants are affected by the pressure and support of the chest muscles as well as the other tissues – bone, fatty tissue and breast tissue that surround the implants. So while I encourage my patients to experiment with different implants during our consultation, keep in mind that for the majority of cases, it matters much more how the surgery is done than what type of implants are used. This is why it is my goal to ensure that we communicate well during your consult so that you can have a breast augmentation that enhances your figure.
