Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure that involves using breast implants or fat transfer to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. The goal of the surgery is to improve the appearance of the breasts, which may be small, uneven, or saggy. Breast augmentation can be performed for cosmetic reasons, as well as to restore breast volume after pregnancy or weight loss. Here are some things to consider if you’re thinking about Breast augmentation:
The ideal candidates for Breast augmentation are healthy, non-smoking women with realistic expectations about the outcome of the surgery. You should be at least 18 years old to undergo Breast augmentation, and you should have fully developed breasts.
2. Types of implants:
There are two main types of breast implants: saline and silicone. Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water, while silicone implants are filled with a gel-like substance. Silicone implants are generally considered to be more natural-looking and feel more like real breasts, but they are also more expensive and may be more prone to complications.
3. Incision options:
There are several different incision options for Breast augmentation, including peri areolar (around the nipple), inframammary (in the fold under the breast), and trans axillary (in the armpit). The best incision option for you will depend on your anatomy and the size and type of implants being used.
Breast augmentation surgery is typically performed on an outpatient basis, and you can expect to go home the same day. You may experience some pain, swelling, and bruising for the first few days after surgery, and you’ll need to take it easy for a week or two. You should avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting for at least a few weeks, and you’ll need to wear a special bra or bandage to support your breasts as they heal.
5. Risks and complications:
As with any surgical procedure, Breast augmentation carries some risks, including bleeding, infection, and scarring. There is also a risk of implant rupture or leakage, which may require additional surgery to repair. It’s important to discuss all of the potential risks and complications with your surgeon before undergoing Breast augmentation.
Breast augmentation and Breast Lift
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that involves using breast implants or fat transfer to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. Breast Lift, also known as mastopexy, is a surgical procedure that involves removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to lift and reshape the breasts.
- While Breast augmentation and Breast Lifting can both be used to improve the appearance of the breasts, they are different procedures and are often used to address different concerns. Breast augmentation is primarily used to increase the size of the breasts or restore volume that has been lost due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight loss. Breast Lift, on the other hand, is primarily used to lift and reshape sagging breasts.
- If you have small, saggy breasts, you may benefit from a combination of Breast augmentation and Breast Lift. This is known as augmentation mastopexy. In this procedure, implants are used to increase breast size, while excess skin is removed, and the surrounding tissue is tightened to lift and reshape the breasts.
