Breast Augmentation Options
It’s estimated by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, that over 290,000 breast augmentation procedures were performed in 2015. You might be interested in a breast augmentation for a variety of reasons. It might be that you want a fuller bust than what nature and your genes provided you with.
Perhaps your interest in a breast augmentation is related to changes in your breasts after significant weight loss, pregnancy, or breastfeeding. Your unique body type and augmentation goals influence the breast augmentation options Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Center of Kentucky recommends for you.
Silicone implants have a very similar feel to natural breast tissue. This makes them a popular option. Should one of the implants develop a leak in the membrane, the implant will not deflate. However, you will need to periodically have an MRI or ultrasound performed to monitor the integrity of the implant.
Saline implants have been approved by the FDA and have become a very popular breast augmentation option. The implants are filled with a sterile saline solution that will be harmlessly absorbed by your body should one of the implants develop a leak in the membrane. Should this happen the implant will deflate, any escaping fluid will be safely absorbed by your body.
Perhaps you are only looking for a minor amount modification in breast size. In that case be interested in a fat transfer breast augmentation procedure. This can be done in conjunction with a liposuction procedure. The surgery takes fat from another part of your body an implants it into the breast pocket without the use of an artificial implant.
Every year breast lift procedures grow in popularity. In fact, the number of breast lift procedures performed each year is nearly double that of saline and silicone implants. A breast lift involves removing skin and possibly small amounts of breast tissue to tighten the breast and lift it for a more youthful appearance.
