Breast augmentation, or augmentation mammoplasty, is done to increase breast size. The surgery can be performed using different types of breast implants (silicone – filled, saline – filled or textured) or fat transfer. During the surgery, incisions are made in specific areas where the visibility of scars is minimal – the possible locations are in the lower fold of the breast, around the areola, in the armpit or under the breast fold. The incision creates an opening to insert a breast implant, which is typically placed either on top of the pectoral muscle (also known as subglandular placement) or under it (otherwise called submuscular or subpectoral).
Is Breast augmentation with implants safe? Pros and cons of Breast implants.
Breast implants are deemed safe, as no associations between breast implants and health disorders have been found in scientific research. However, just as with any type of surgery, one must be aware of possible risks which include:
Getting breast augmentation is a perfect choice for those who seek breasts that are fuller and have a more desirable contour. It helps patients obtain a better body image and gain more overall confidence. In addition, augmentation mammoplasty is a suitable solution for people whose breasts are underdeveloped, asymmetrical or have gotten smaller in size due to other factors.
It is important to note that even though one may still be able to breastfeed after having breast augmentation, the procedure can possibly reduce the production of breast milk. The degree of reduction depends on the location of both the implant and the incision, as well as sensitivity of the nipple. One should also be aware that breast implants are not made to last a lifetime – factors such as age and changes in weight may affect the appearance of your breasts. Moreover, breast implants will affect future mammograms.
Who is a proper candidate for Breast augmentation with implants? When does a patient need a Breast Lift as well as Breast Augmentation?
The most common reason for getting breast implants is to improve one’s appearance if one thinks their breasts are too small. In addition, you may consider getting augmentation mammoplasty if your breasts have gotten smaller after pregnancy or are visibly asymmetrical because of development issues or past surgeries. There are instances where a breast lift (or mastopexy) is combined with breast augmentation, usually in order to achieve more satisfying results. However, in such cases there may be a limit as to how big the implants may be.
Breast Augmentation with implants vs. Breast augmentation with your own fat tissue
Both breast implants and fat grafting have their pros and cons. Having breast enlargement with your own fat tissue will feel more natural and leave almost invisible scarring. In addition, there is virtually no maintenance needed when compared to breast implants. Moreover, the risk of having an allergic reaction to the transferred tissue is nonexistent, as your own tissue is used. However, using fat grafting may not satisfy patients who seek a more dramatic change in size, and there is a chance of calcification at the fat injection sites.
Short scar technique
If you seek minimal scarring after breast augmentation, a short scar technique is available. This technique allows surgeons to insert an implant through a 3 centimeter long incision. Other benefits of this technique include reducing the risk of infection and other complications. Nonetheless, not all types of breast implants can be used with the short scar technique, so be sure to discuss these options with your surgeon.
What type of surgeries Breast implants could be combined with?
There are various procedures that are done in combination with breast augmentation:
Before the surgery the surgeon will examine your overall health and ask you about any type of medications you take or have taken in the past (including herbal supplements and over – the – counter drugs).
If you smoke, you will be asked to quit smoking for at least 4 weeks before the surgery.
Furthermore, you will be asked to refrain from taking anti – inflammatory drugs (including aspirin) before breast augmentation surgery, as taking such medications may increase the risk of bleeding.
A baseline mammogram might be suggested so that changes in your breast tissue are recognised in the future.
You should discuss your expectations and any type of questions you have about the surgery with your surgeon during consultation. In addition, your surgeon will describe the possible augmentation mammoplasty techniques and types of implants. A certain technique and breast implant type may be suggested depending on your preferences.
Recovery after breast augmentation with implants surgery
As breast augmentation is done for cosmetic purposes, most health insurance plans do not cover the cost of this procedure.
