Types of Breast Augmentation
Let’s explore various options that may help you enhance your figure and learn about their unique benefits to help you make an informed decision.
1- Saline and Silicone Breast Implants
Saline and silicone are the two most common materials used in breast implants. Both are FDA-approved and have unique advantages. Saline implants are filled with sterile saltwater and can be adjusted more easily during surgery. If a saline implant leaks, the body safely absorbs the saline.
Silicone implants, on the other hand, also known as “gummy bear” implants, are made of a cohesive gel material that mimics the look and feel of natural breasts. These implants maintain their shape for a longer time period, require replacements less frequently, and have a lower leak rate. However, they are more expensive than saline implants.
2- Mastopexy: Breast Lift
A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a procedure that raises and reshapes sagging breasts. It can be performed in conjunction with breast augmentation to provide both an increase in breast size and an improvement in breast shape. A breast lift is an ideal choice for women who have experienced a loss of volume or sagging due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, or aging.
3- Fat Transfer “Natural” Breast Augmentation
Fat transfer breast augmentation is a natural alternative to implants. This procedure involves removing fat from other areas of the body (such as the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks) and injecting it into the breasts. This technique provides a more subtle enhancement and eliminates the risk of implant-related complications.
What to Expect During a Breast Augmentation Procedure?
During your breast augmentation consultation, our experienced surgeons will discuss your goals and help you choose the best option for your desired results. The procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia and takes about 1-2 hours.
Incisions are made in inconspicuous locations to minimize scarring, and the chosen implants or fat transfer is then placed to achieve the desired enhancement.
Aftercare and Recovery
After your breast augmentation procedure, you will receive detailed instructions for post-operative care. You may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which can be managed with pain medication.
Most patients return to work within one week, but strenuous activities should be avoided for 4-6 weeks. It’s essential to follow your surgeon’s instructions and attend follow-up appointments to ensure proper healing and optimal results.
