You may know you are ready to move forward with breast augmentation, but do you know specifically how much size you want to add? This can be a difficult question for women that have trouble visualizing what they might look like with fuller breasts. Fortunately, there are ways to help you “see” what your finished results might look like, so you can go into your breast surgery with confidence of what your outcome will be.

Your Initial Consultation

Your implant choice will begin with your consultation with your plastic surgeon. If you select Dr. Ciaravino for your breast augmentation procedure, you can rest assured he will provide sufficient time and attention to put all of your apprehensions to rest. As a surgeon that performs hundreds of breast augmentation procedures each year, Dr. Ciaravino is uniquely qualified to pinpoint the results you are hoping to achieve and help you choose the implants that will meet your expectations.

The Lowdown on Vectra 3-D Breast Imaging

In addition to his vast experience in the area of breast augmentation, Dr. Ciaravino offers technology to help you visualize what you will look like with your implants in place. Vectra 3-D Breast Imaging actually simulates the results of your breast augmentation, using an image of your own body as the model. This state-of-the-art system is helping our patients see what results of their breast augmentation might look like, so we can have a realistic discussion of desired results and expectations prior to surgery.

The Vectra 3-D process begins by taking a 3-dimensional image of your body and projecting it onto a computer screen. From there, we can manipulate the image to help you see what you would look like with different implant sizes. The images can be shown from different angles to give you the most accurate representation of what you can expect from your results. With a simple screen change, we can switch implant sizes so that you can compare your choices easily.

The ability to visualize your breast implants is a huge benefit to many of our patients, particularly since women tend to think of a size increase in terms of cup size. Implants are measured by volume, which translates to cubic centimeters or cc’s. This can make it even more difficult to look at an implant size and compare that to how your new breasts will fill out your bra and your clothing.

Making the Right Choice

While your choice of implant size is important, it is even more crucial to choose the right plastic surgeon for your procedure. Dr. Ciaravino is considered one of the premiere breast surgery physicians in the country, performing more than 800 of these procedures every year. With his training and experience, you can rest assured Dr. Ciaravino is prepared to help you realize your aesthetic goals, no matter what they might be.

Breast augmentation is a highly personal decision that should be performed according to your precise body proportions and your desired results. Dr. Ciaravino has the experience and expertise to provide you with the natural, beautiful outcome you are looking for.
