Breast augmentation surgery is a well known surgery among womens. Any woman who wants breast lift or to change the appearance and size of the breast will undergo this surgery. There are several factors that influence people's decisions to have breast augmentations. You can use this information to determine your options as a patient and a consumer.


Types of breast augmentation and implant

Fat transfer breast augmentation

The surgical procedure known as autologous fat transfer, also referred to as AFT or fat grafting, involves liposuction harvesting of excess body fat from one area of the body, processing the harvested fat, and then transplanting the processed fat into a different area of the body, such as the breasts, buttocks, or face. This method can aid in boosting volume or replacing lost volume, such as that which results from changes in the weight loss, or body mass index.

According to Allure, one major drawback of fat transfer breast augmentation is that most women have specific aesthetic goals. A physical implant moulds the breast to its form in a manner that fat just can't, and that is why people have grown accustomed to what a standard implant based augmentation looks like which is a round, physical, 3D structure.

Saline Breast Implants

Saline-filled breast implants have an outer shell made of silicone that is filled with a sterile saline solution. Some are already filled, while others are filled as the breast implant itself is being placed. Saline offers a consistent shape and texture, among other advantages. Another benefit of saline implants is that the body absorbs any fluid that leaks from the implants and naturally releases it.

Silicone Breast Implants

Silicone gel is filled in silicone implants. They feature smooth or textured shells and come in various sizes. These implants, as opposed to saline implants, are thought by some to feel more like natural breasts. However, if the implant ruptures, there can be additional risks. Additionally silicone implants can be used in procedures that correct or enhance the outcomes of initial operations.


Additional Options

Structured Saline Breast Implants

Its more recent variant includes sterile saltwater as well as an interior framework. Compared to saline alone, the structure aids in producing a form and feel that appear more realistic. For some people, it strikes the ideal compromise between the security of saline implants and the more realistic appearance of silicone.

Gummy Bear Breast Implants

Due to its ability to maintain their shape even in the event that the shell ruptures or cracks, form-stable silicone gel implants are frequently referred to as "gummy bear" implants. Compared to conventional silicone implants, the gel is thicker. These implants don't leak as frequently as conventional silicone implants do.

Gummy Bear implants are different from conventional silicone gel and saline implants in that they have a distinctive tear-drop form. Because of their teardrop form, some people think Gummy Bear implants offer the most natural appearance. Other drawbacks include a higher cost and typically a wider incision needed for these implants, especially when compared to cohesive gel and saline implants.

Round Breast Implants

Implants that are filled with standard silicone gel or saline frequently have a rounded form. These implants give the appearance of a fuller breast. The symmetrical circle form and breast volume ensures that they retain the same appearance even when rotated.

Smooth Breast Implants

These implants can move more freely because of their exterior, soft, smooth silicone rubber casing. Both silicone and saline-filled implants can have smooth implants. Some people say that since smooth-textured implants are softer and move more like real breasts, they seem more natural. Typically, circular implants are smooth.

Textured Breast Implants

They are unlikely to move because of the rough silicone rubber exterior shell, as the name implies. Both silicone and saline-filled implants can have textured implants. Implants with texture come in both round and teardrop shapes. Because textured implants don't shift as much, they are sometimes better suited to a patient's bone structure.

We felt it might be helpful to highlight another type of breast augmentation that some individuals choose even if it isn't precisely an implant breast surgery so that you are aware of your alternatives.


Choice of incision

You might be unsure of the ideal incision for your breast implants if you made the decision to go and arrange for a breast augmentation treatment. Presently, the axillary (armpit), periareolar (around areola), periumbilical (belly button), and inframammary fold incisions are the four accepted alternatives.

The most crucial step in breast implant surgery and placement is making a highly accurate pocket for the implant. The implant may slip out of position and result in malposition if the pocket is not made precisely or if the tissues are weak. Surgery revision is the sole solution to this issue. Surgical professionals frequently hold the opinion that incisions made through the armpit and belly button offer less control and are linked to a higher incidence of malposition.


How To Choose A Qualified Cosmetic Surgeon

The most crucial choice you'll make if you're thinking about having breast augmentation surgery is who will do the procedure. Ask the cosmetic surgeon any questions you may have.

Board certified plastic surgeons

Check to see if your cosmetic surgeon is board certified. This will guarantee that they have specialized training and experience in cosmetic surgery, including in breast augmentation procedures, and that your procedure will be performed in a facility that has been accredited, both of which are crucial for your safety. Lastly, avoid selecting a breast augmentation surgeon based solely on cost.

Verify the clinic's registration.

Verify the hospital or clinic's formal registration by asking them to show you the certificate. Hospitals and clinics must ensure that all staff are appropriately trained to perform their jobs safely, and they must have published quality ratings online. Select a cosmetic surgeon who is affiliated with certified hospitals rather than one who only practices in a clinic where he offers to perform a complicated treatment and lacks the necessary emergency supplies. A surgeon seeking accreditation from big hospitals must pass a series of interviews, evaluations of their credentials, and background checks.

Ask for referral from doctor or friends

Make use of recommendations from friends and family when looking for a plastic surgeon. Consult a general physician. He or she may provide unbiased advice about surgery and surgeons and will have insights into local services.

Inquire about prior surgical experience

Because cosmetic surgery is such a broad profession, not every qualified cosmetic surgeon you discover online can meet your unique needs. For instance, if you require a hair transplant, you should consult a cosmetic surgeon who has handled several cases comparable to yours rather than one who mostly performs face and body sculpting procedures. A true cosmetic surgeon will always disclose during the consultation whether or not they have experience doing the surgery you require.

There are several possible incision locations, including the armpit, the fold under the breast, and the areolar margin (periareolar incision) (axillary incision). A belly-button method has a higher rate of complications.

Placing the breast implant

Following the incision, a breast implant is placed into a pocket in one of two ways: A submuscular placement- Beneath the pectoral muscle Submammary/subglandular placement - Directly behind the breast tissue, above the pectoral muscle.

Closing the incisions

Layered sutures are used to heal breast tissue incisions, and surgical tape, sutures, or skin adhesive is used to repair skin incisions. The incision lines will disappear over time. Several factors, such as your genetics, nicotine exposure, and infection, affect the scar's quality.

You'll need to make arrangements for transportation home because you'll still be feeling the effects of anesthetic. Moreover, you should have someone nearby the rest of the day in case you want assistance.

The First 5-7 Postoperative Days

1–3 weeks following surgery

You might need to take more time off if your profession involves heavy lifting or other rigorous physical activities in order to make sure your body is fully recovered. At this time, any swelling, bruising, and discomfort should have significantly decreased.

4–6 Weeks after Surgery

You should be fully recovered by this point and you can start reintroducing more strenuous activity to your daily regimen. After around four weeks, vigorous aerobic and lower body exercises can be resumed. Heavy lifting and chest exercises must be avoided, nevertheless, until around six weeks after surgery.

Last stage

Before you can see your ultimate outcomes, it could take three to four months. This is because it takes time for any lingering swelling to go down and for your breast implants to settle into their normal place. Although you'll want to see your new look as soon as possible, patience is key during this process.
