Breast Augmentation has Advanced in Outstanding Ways
- Posted on: Aug 30 2019
The first breast implants were placed decades ago. Since the time it became possible to enhance the size, shape, and symmetry of the breasts, women around the world have turned to their plastic surgeon for assistance achieving their personal goals in this area. There are numerous reasons women give for wanting breast augmentation. Whether for a whole new size or to restore shape where it has been lost, breast augmentation provides outstanding results. It always has, and the process has only gotten better over time. Here how.
More Implant Options
Women have had the choice between saline and silicone breast implants for several years. However, besides type and size, options were relatively limited. Today, treatment options include standard saline implants in a strong silicone sac, saline implants structured within multiple silicone chambers, form stable silicone implants, gummy bear silicone implants, and even one’s own fat. Furthermore, breast implants are made in round and anatomical shapes as well as smooth or textured surface. Each option plays a part in the final look and feel of the breasts.
Advanced Surgical Techniques
One of the desires that patients have is for physical improvement with the least possible scarring. Breast implant surgery can now be conducted in multiple ways. Surgeons seek to minimize the appearance of scars as much as possible by making incisions in discreet locations such as around the areola, in the mammary crease, or in the armpit. A trans-umbilical incision is also possible, though this method is not used as often as other options due to increased risks.
In addition to incision options, one of the most profound advances in breast augmentation technique has been the development of fat transfer. Some refer to this as natural breast augmentation. This is because breasts are enlarged using fat cells obtained from a donor site such as the thighs or abdomen. Fat transfer achieves more subtle results but can be repeated once complete settling of fatty tissue has occurred. Natural breast augmentation incurs smaller incisions and typically requires a shorter recovery than other methods of breast enlargement.
