Are breast implants right for you?

Are breast implants right for you? For some women, breast augmentation is a way to feel more confident. For others, it’s part of rebuilding the breast for various conditions. To be a good candidate and to know if breast augmentation surgery is right for you, you should:

Educate yourself

Take time to become informed. Your plastic surgeon is your most valuable source. Trust their expertise to help you understand the risks and benefits associated with breast implants and surgery.

Do it for yourself

Your personal motivation for surgery is one of the most important considerations in your decision-making process. Spend some time evaluating why you believe surgery is right for you.

Set realistic expectations

To feel good about your body, you need to have realistic expectations. There are many reasons to enhance the size and shape of your breasts, and the right fit is one that balances what you want with what will compliment your body type and what your breast tissue will allow.

Pictured here is an example of Dr. Secretan’s work. He was successfully able to enhance this patient’s breast size. As you can see, they look natural and fit with the overall proportions of her body.

breast implants by Dr. Secretan in Lethbridge

  • The implants are a sub-glandular plane and are 385cc full projecting Truform II allergan implants.
  • Weight: Approx 140 Lbs
  • Height: 5’8”
  • Implant: Full projection Truform II 385 cc silicone implants
  • This image was taken 6 months post operative.

Breast implants are composed of a silicone shell with a filler.

  • Saline implants contain a salt-water solution.
  • Silicone implants contain silicone gel.

Silicone gel-filled breast implants were licensed by Health Canada in 2006 and are used extensively throughout the world. They are often preferred over saline-filled implants for several reasons:

  • Silicone implants look and feel more natural
  • Hold their shape better over time
  • Provide high satisfaction to both patients and surgeons
  • Have less complications, such as rupturing and capsular contracture
  • Prove more implant sizes

If this is a procedure you’ve been considering and want to learn more about, contact our office and book a consultation! It’s imperative that you understand what the surgery involves, including possible risks, complications, and follow-up care.

Experiences at Lethbridge Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics

 

Here is some of the feedback we’ve received from patients who have had experiences at Lethbridge Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics.

“First off, let me start by saying Dr. Secretan is amazing! He is definitely the best! I trusted him the moment I met him. He is very detailed, honest, and genuinely cares about his patients. He is relatable and personalizes what you need and want. His team is just as great! I am beyond happy and in love with my results! I am two months post-op and I feel and look amazing! I did it all; a complete mommy makeover. As busy and on-demand as Dr. Secretan is, I feel very, very lucky I had him as my surgeon! I am forever grateful for this life changing experience. I wouldn’t have picked anyone else to do this. Thank you and thank you to all of your dedicated staff!”

“Dr. Secretan is an excellent plastic surgeon. I recently had a procedure done and he did a great job. I would highly recommend this clinic. I had my surgery done in their on-site surgical suite which is well equipped, clean, and bright. Thanks to all the staff for a job well done and for making me feel comfortable.”

“Dr. Secretan is amazing! I had been suffering with carpal tunnel, in my right wrist for many years. He performed release surgery just over 4 weeks ago. I’m healing amazingly… and I have full feeling back in my fingers, and you can barely tell where the incision was made!”

“Dr. Secretan and his staff were amazing in all instances in which I required services and surgery. I had a large lump removed from my forehead, non malignant fortunately, and the surgery was quick and efficient. Furthermore, there is virtually no scaring as the wound was properly addressed which is a good thing considering the high viability of the location. In addition, I have had laser hair removal and other laser skin treatments performed on my face that have been extremely successful. Probably the best part of the experience has been the front office staff and the considerate attitude of both Dr. Secretan and his medical team. Strongly recommend this Doctor for both cosmetic and laser surgery.”

Thank you to the many of you who share your kind words! We’re so happy to hear you are happy with the results and all doing well and are so appreciative that you chose Lethbridge Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics!
