Augmentation mammaplasty or breast implants are the surgical placement of breast implants or autologous fat transfer to breast to make breasts bigger and fuller and improve symmetry of the breasts, or to restore breast volume lost after childbirth, weight loss or due to ageing process. It can be done for reconstructive purposes, such as after mastectomy for breast cancer, or for cosmetic reasons.It is very common now, especially in women in their twenties and also for men who wish to enhance, regain or restore balance to their figures (around chest).
There are following options are available which can be choose on the basis of your body shape, medical history and aesthetic goals.
Silicone-filled breast implants
- A silicone breast implants consist of a silicone shell which are filled with soft, thick and elastic silicone gel (a synthetic polymers) and available in different shapes. The silicone implant incision is larger than the saline implant incision because the silicone implant is filled before insertion into the body.The silicone gel closely resembles the feel of natural breast tissue and have a more natural look and feel than saline implants. Silicone breast implants are FDA-approved for breast augmentation in women age 22 or older.
Cohesive gel silicone implants
- Also known as “Gummy bear” breast implants or “form stable” implants as they kept maintain their shape even when the implant shell is broken. These implants are filled with a cohesive gel which are made up of crosslinked molecules of silicone, which makes them a bit thicker and firmer than traditional silicone implants.
Autologous fat transfer-It is a surgical procedure in which an individual's own body fat is harvested using liposuction from a fat-yielding body part like from abdomen, thighs, buttocks or flanks, processed it and then injected it into your breasts. This is a less common method than breast implant augmentation and is still undergoing for research and clinical studies for safety and effectiveness.
If there is any sagging or drooping of your breasts then your cosmetic surgeon might combine any of these breast augmentation options with a breast lift.
Breast augmentation results are immediately visible which gives you a more youthful-looking figure. Sutures are usually removed in seven to 10 days. After some time the post-surgical swelling will subside and inconspicuous scars by incision will fade. These breast implants can last for a decade but often they last quite longer without any issues. They do not affect breastfeeding. Following your surgeon’s instructions is essential to the success of your surgery.
