Abstract
Selection of alternatives for breast augmentation should be prioritized in the order in which those selections are most likely to affect short- and lo ng-term outcomes. Every selection of alternative must be reconciled with pa tient priorities and patient tissue limitations. This discussion addresses selection of alternatives for breast augmentation sequenced in order of pri ority, including the following: assuring adequate soft tissue coverage (poc ket location), implant size and type, patient tissue limitations, longterm implant-soft tissue dynamics, incision approach, intraoperative techniques and instrumentation to optimize control, and intraoperative techniques to m inimize tissue trauma.
