A More Natural Look and Appearance: Picking the Right Breast Implant

We’ve all heard of the different breast implant options and heard horror stories of silicone breast implants exploding in the mid ninenties and causing serious infections in women everywhere. However, with medical advancement, silicone implants are safer than ever. And with a new gummy-bear breast implant on the market, there is now a third option for you to choose from.

Silicone
Filled with silicone gel, silicone implants are known to both look and feel more natural than saline implants. As an FDA approved solution to fuller breasts, silicone implants can either be surgically placed under or over the breast muscle, depending on the preference of both you and your surgeon.

Breast implantsAlthough silicone implants are safe and shouldn’t have any leaks, it is still recommended that you visit your doctor on a fairly regular basis to make sure that the implants are still in a healthy and working order.

Saline
Also, as an FDA approved type of implant, saline implants are filled with sterile saltwater. Also placed either either under or over the breast muscle, saline implants will give you the appearance of larger and fuller looking breasts.

The best thing about saline implants is that if they were to explode or leak, the body would naturally be able to expell of the saline solution and you wouldn’t have to be worried about any sort of contamination or illness.

Gummy Bear
Yes, gummy bears are all of our favorite childhood snack, but they aren’t just a candy. As the newest available implant option on the market, gummy bear implants have a thicker silicone gel that is thought to be less likely to break and more durable— thus giving it the name of “gummy bear.”

Instead of being round like other implants, gummy bear implants are shaped to give a fuller appearance at the bottom of the implant. However, if somehow moved, these implants can give you awkward looking breasts.

With these three options of breast implants to choose from and with the help of your doctor, you can have fuller and perkier breasts in no time.

Maintaining Your Post Surgery Body

If you’ve recently undergone weight loss surgery like liposuction or had a tummy tuck, the work doesn’t stop there. Although many patients believe that surgery is the cure-all for weight loss, that just isn’t the case. In order to maintain your post surgery body, try the following tips.

Post Surgery BodyDiet
A diet full of low-fat and high protein foods, will not only help you to feel healthier but it will help you to keep any added weight off. Make sure that you aren’t skipping meals and that you’re eating a diet that’s full of lean protein like chicken and turkey, whole grains like oatmeal and quinoa, and vegetables like kale, yams, and broccoli. Remember though, that it is okay to splurge every once in a while. Whether you have a sweet tooth or a salty one, it’s okay to indulge in things like doughnuts or movie theater popcorn every once in a while. Just make sure that you don’t go overboard and limit yourself to small servings.

Exercise
As your main way to stay toned up, exercise is your bestfriend. Whether you prefer to run, lift weights, or participate in a workout class like cycling, there are different workout options for virtually eveyr personality type. Just make sure that you’re at least working out for 30 minutes, three times a week.

If you’re short on time and can’t seem to fit in three 30 minute workout sessions, try to do a brief Interval workout such as the 7-minute workout. Designed with 12 different workouts, in just 7 minutes, this scientifically proven workout routine will help you to stay healthy and keep off any extra weight.

Motivation
Finding the motivation to stay fit can sometimes require more work than doing the actual work. On days when you feel like eating a milkshake or skipping the gym, remind yourself of how much work and pain it took to get to this place, and that it can easily go away.

If you’ve recently undergone surgery and want to maintain your healthy physique, make sure you have a healthy balance of positive motivate, exercise, and diet.
