Breast augmentation is the procedure for breast enhancement or enlargement. The procedure usually requires the use of implants in order to enhance the size of your breasts. The implants help with breast enhancement and help with reconstruction after a mastectomy. There are also non-surgical breast enhancement options as well.
Reasons for getting the surgery
Women may wish to get breast enhancement in case they want to:
- Boost their self-confidence and self-esteem
- Enhance their body contours
- Reconstruct their breasts after undergoing mastectomy
- Improve their physical appearance after significant weight loss
- Improve their body contours and appearance after breastfeeding and pregnancy
Breast implants came in use in the 1800s and was meant to improve the shape of the breasts. At that time, the materials used for the implants included silastic rubber, polyethylene chips, and ox cartilage. Since then, the materials that are used to make the breast implants have changed drastically and today you can choose from:
Saline: These implants are filled with sterile saline water. If the shell of these implants’ breaks, then it will begin leaking. The saline water gets absorbed into your body and then expelled naturally.
Silicone: theses implants are filled with silicone gel and it feels like your natural tissue. If these implants suffer a leak, then the gel may escape into the implant placement pocket or it may remain contained within the implant shell.
Textured: these implants take advantage of the scar tissue and stick to them, so they do not move. The implants reduce any chance of you suffering from a tight scar.
Smooth: this is the implant with the softest feeling, but it can move within the breast implant pocket. This means that you get natural movement, but you may also suffer from visible rippling of the implants.
Some of the reasons why you should consider augmentation
Breast Augmentation has been one of the most popular surgical procedures. There are many reasons for choosing augmentation including wanting to get an improved breast look. However, there are also procedures like the breast reconstruction and breast lift that are also classified as augmentation.
Breast implants can be removed
You should know that your implants can be removed whenever you wish it. Once you have undergone the procedure, you require some time to recuperate and some women may even experience some discomfort. However, whenever you are not satisfied with your results, you can have them removed since augmentation with implants is not a permanent procedure.
After losing weight
When you lose weight, your body suffers, and you won’t enjoy the same body contours anymore. Your breasts may look misshapen and flabby. You can choose breast implants or the breast lift procedure to restore your youthful breasts.
Life after babies
Unfortunately, pregnancy and breastfeeding can reduce the plumpness of your breasts. By the time you have had three pregnancies, your breasts will not be firm anymore. Once you have completed your family, a breast augmentation surgery with implants will help you restore the perky breasts of your youth.
