Leading an active lifestyle is a key part of looking and feeling great. For many women, so too is breast augmentation, a procedure in which the breasts are enhanced to better match the rest of your frame.
If you are considering breast implants in the Holland, Michigan area, you may wonder how they will impact your ability to exercise. For most women, breast implants will play no role athletic prowess. However, if you engage in certain competitive or physically demanding sports, there are some procedural modifications that may be necessary to guard against any loss of abilities.
Above or Below the Muscle Placement
In most instances, breast implants placed below the muscles in the chest will look and feel more natural. They are also less likely to interfere with performance issues such as arm reach and swing. However, if you are a weight lifter, implants placed below the muscles in the chest may be more likely to rupture. Our board-certified plastic surgeons offer both above and below muscle placement options and will tailor your procedure to meet your physical requirements.
In addition to placement, things such as implant size, shape, and profile will need to be taken into consideration for athletic women. Be sure to talk to us about your athletic endeavors during your initial consultation to allow us to customize your breast augmentation procedure to meet your specific needs.
