Breast Augmentation

What Is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation, otherwise known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical technique used to enhance the size of a woman’s breasts. Breast augmentation is sometimes called “Boob Job” or “Breast Enlargement Surgery.” The Plastic Surgeon will use saline or silicone implants in the patient’s breasts to increase the size.

During the initial discussion, the surgeon will ask about your budget and final goal to ascertain the best option of implant for your needs.  Each implant has distinct advantages and disadvantages.

Procedure

How Is Breast Augmentation Performed?

There are two options for women who want to increase their bust size: implants and fat grafting.

Implants

This is a surgical procedure in which silicone implants are placed in the breasts. First, a pocket-like area is created beneath your breast tissue or behind your chest muscle during this surgery. The implants are inserted through a little inframammary crease on the bottom of your breasts. Finally, the implant is installed, and the wounds closed. Patients who want to go up multiple cup sizes tend to choose implants over fat grafting.

Fat Grafting

The surgeon takes a small quantity of fat and transfers it from one part of the body to another. This is an outpatient operation that is performed under general anesthesia. This method is typically used on patients who want a more natural appearance.

What Are The Different Types of Breast Implants?

Types of breast implants include saline implants, structured saline implants, silicone implants, and textured silicone implants.

Saline Implants

Provide uniform shape and size to breasts.  They’re made of sterile salt water.

Structured Saline implants

They’re made of the same sterile salt-water solution as the saline implants, but they have more structure in them.

Silicone implants

One of the most popular choices of implants.  The gel material has a more natural breast tissue texture.

Textured silicone implants

The upgraded version of silicone implants.  These implants are either micro-textured or nano-textured to give the breasts a fuller and rounder appearance.

FAQ

FAQ about Breast Augmentation

Newer generations of implants are designed to last a lifetime. Implants made by reputable manufacturers are unlikely to suffer manufacturing flaws such as a leak or rupture/degradation.

However, breast implants are not usually a one-time surgical operation. You may require new implants at times. Therefore you should attend regular check-ups following the breast augmentation to evaluate the status of the implants.

The size and form of your breasts may alter due to weight reduction, weight increase, hormonal changes, aging, or pregnancy. See one of our surgeons if you are still unhappy with how it appears.
