Sometimes Mother Nature doesn’t provide the endowments we’d hoped for in our younger years. For some women, this might mean smaller breast size or a change in breast shape after a significant change in body composition. One way to address an issue like this while boosting your self-esteem is to have a breast augmentation performed at Dr. Natalie Driessen’s Palm Desert, California clinic.

You might be interested to know that breast implants can come in different shapes, sizes, and materials. During your initial consultation, Dr. Natalie Driessen will present you with some options depending on your personal preference.

Silicone implants are the original type of breast implant. The special, soft silicone material feels similar to natural breast tissue. There have been some rare instances where a leak has developed in the membrane of this type of implant. You will periodically need to return to our clinic to monitor the integrity of the implant. Should a leak develop between monitoring appointments, the implant will not immediate deflate in volume.

In recent years, silicone implants have grown in popularity and recognition. This style of an implant has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for safe use in breast augmentation. The implant membrane is filled with a sterile saline solution. If a leak develops, the implant might slowly start to deflate, yet the saline will be harmlessly absorbed by your body.

The incision strategy Dr. Natalie Driessen uses will be based on your personal preference, the shape of the breast implant, and any other alterations you might want to make.

Shaped implants can be used to help adjust the profile of your bust line or to recreate a more natural appearance for your breasts. There are a few different options that Dr. Natalie Driessen might present to you based on your personal preference.

If you live in the Palm Desert, California area and you are dissatisfied with the size or shape of your breasts, you should call (760) 773-6616 to schedule a breast augmentation consultation with Dr. Natalie Driessen.
