Breast augmentation, sometimes known as “breast aug” or “boob job” by patients, is increasing the size of your breasts with breast implants or fat transfer. This operation can also help to restore breast volume lost due to weight loss or pregnancy, correct natural breast size asymmetry, and produce a more rounded breast shape.
What can Breast Augmentation do?
Boosting your breasts’ fullness and projection.
Enhance the harmony of breast and hip curves.
Improve your self-esteem and self-assurance
Breast implants can also be used to restore the breast after a mastectomy or an injury.
What can’t Breast Augmentation do?
Breast augmentation will not help if your breasts are significantly drooping. For drooping breasts to seem larger and raised, a breast lift may be combined with a breast augmentation.
Breast lifting can either be done concurrently with your augmentation or as a separate procedure. This decision will be made with the help of your plastic surgeon.
BREAST IMPLANT REVISION
In breast implant revision surgery, fresh implants are used to replace existing implants.
What is a breast implant revision surgery?
In breast implant revision surgery, fresh implants are used to replace existing implants. Changing or improving the look of the breasts may also be an aim when replacing the implant material.
Desire to change the size of the breasts
Changing the shape of the breast implant pocket in order to relocate the implant.
Enhancing or reducing the breast implant’s size or form
Breast implant revision surgery might be sought for any of the following reasons:
For some women, a desire to increase their breast size
There is a lot of discomfort because of the capsular contracture.
Concerns regarding implant rupture or migration.
Switch to silicone from saline or another kind of implant
Breast implants may alter in form or size over time, and the breast tissue that covers them might also change, resulting in a less desired look or feel to the breasts. The actual implant device comes with a lifetime guarantee with many breast implants, however after 10 years, the expenses of undergoing surgery to replace the implants stop being covered by the lifetime warranty policy. Since this is the case, many women will choose to replace or upgrade their breast implants at or around the 10-year mark due to this reason.
Because it is not a conventional or normal process, breast implant revision surgery requires individualized attention to meet the special requirements of each patient. A board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive training and experience in breast surgery should perform this procedure, as should the patient, who should discuss his or her expectations with the surgeon and develop a surgical strategy that addresses all of the concerns at the time of the operation in order to ensure a positive outcome for both parties.
A breast reduction takes away extra breast tissue and skin so that your breasts are the right size for your body and your pain goes away.
What is a breast reduction surgery?
Breast reduction, also called “reduction mammaplasty,” is a procedure that removes extra breast fat, glandular tissue, and skin to make the breast size more proportional to the rest of the body and to relieve the pain that comes with having very large breasts (macromastia).
Patients who have breasts that are too big for their bodies can feel both physical and emotional pain because of it. Patients with macromastia may feel physical pain from the weight of their breasts. Because of the pain it causes, it can be hard for some patients to do normal physical activities. Along with the physical problems that come with macromastia, some patients may also experience emotional distress or more serious mental health problems because of their large breasts.
Even though breast reduction is often done for medical reasons, people who don’t have the symptoms of macromastia but are unhappy with the size of their breasts can still get it done for aesthetic reasons. Patients who choose to have breast reduction surgery for cosmetic reasons may give a number of reasons, such as social stigmas and clothing issues.
BREAST IMPLANT REMOVAL
The goal of breast implant removal surgery is to remove the implants and any scar tissue that has grown around them.
What does breast implant removal surgery involve?
The goal of breast implant removal surgery is to remove breast implants from women who have had breast augmentation or breast reconstruction. During these procedures, the surgeon may also remove silicone from leaking implants and the breast capsule, which is the scar tissue that forms after a breast implant is placed.
Most of the time, the scar tissue that forms after an implant is put in is soft and doesn’t need to be removed, but it can harden and cause pain and discomfort. This is often a reason to get the implants and scar tissue removed.
Breast implants are not made to last forever, so it is important to have them changed or taken out every 10 to 15 years. This decision is usually made based on the person and what they want and need.
Sometimes in cases, the outside shell of the implant breaks down, causing silicone to leak out and scar tissue around the implant to harden. It’s crucial to understand that your implants should be taken out for this reason.
A breast lift, also called a mastopexy, makes the breasts look younger by getting rid of extra skin and tightening the tissue around them.
A breast lift, also called a mastopexy, involves removing extra skin and tightening the tissue around the breasts to reshape and support the new shape of the breasts.
New numbers from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons show that the number of breast lifts has grown by 70 percent since 2000, which is twice as fast as the number of breast implants.
Over time, the areola can grow bigger, and a breast lift will also shrink this.
A breast lift can give you a more youthful and lifted look to your breasts, which can make your whole body look better. The shape and firmness of a woman’s breasts tend to change as she ages. These changes and the loss of elasticity in the skin can be caused by:
What can’t a breast lift do?
Breast lift surgery doesn’t make a big difference in the size of your breasts or make the top of your breasts rounder. If you want your breasts to look fuller, you might want to think about having a breast lift or breast augmentation.
If you want your breasts to be smaller, you might want to combine a breast lift with a breast reduction.
FAT TRANSFER BREAST AUGMENTATION
Adding size to the breasts by grafting fat
Liposuction is used to take fat from other parts of the body and inject it into the breasts to make them bigger.
What does fat transfer to the breasts mean?
In a fat transfer breast augmentation, fat from other parts of your body is removed with liposuction and injected into your breasts. This type of breast augmentation is for women who want a small increase in breast size and want the results to look natural.
A lot of research has been done on fat transfer breast augmentation:
A pre-expansion technique makes it possible to transfer a large amount of fat to the breasts successfully
Fat transfer is an alternative to breast implants
A new technique uses the patient’s own fat to double the size of the breasts
