This is one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures now according to statistics. The only safe device to increase the size of the breast is the breast implant. They can be from Saline solution and silicone (both FDA approved). They have to be replaced every 10 years. Breast augmentation, or augmentation mammoplasty, is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures performed today. Over time, factors such as age, genetics, pregnancy, weight changes, sun exposure, and gravity can cause the size and shape of the breast to change. Women who are dissatisfied with the size of their breasts, or have experienced changes in breast appearance can achieve a fuller, shapelier breast with breast implants.
During breast augmentation, a breast implant is placed inside a pocket over or under the pectoral muscle. This can help to increase or balance the size of the breast, and will provide breast volume and restore the shape of the breast after partial or total loss. It is important to realize that breast augmentation will not correct sagging or excess skin in the breasts. If this is the case, a breast lift will be necessary, which may be performed in conjunction with this procedure. The most important factor to be happy with your surgery is that “You have to know very well what you want”. The clearer you are in what you want, the easier to make it happen. I normally send patients to measure different sizes and shapes of bras, and also look for before and after pictures of naked breasts that they like and bring those pictures on the day of the operation.
